A Stylish Bungalow with Sensational Garden in Temescal

618 55th STREET, located just three blocks from the highly desired Temescal neighborhood, is a delightful California bungalow just oozing with charm. You enter into the living room and immediately the period details become apparent. Hardwood floors and period trim give it a polished yet cozy feel.

Light fills the room and leads you into a newly renovated open plan dining and kitchen area. This fabulous and open kitchen, an ideal layout for large family gatherings and/or intimate dinner parties with friends—features sturdy butcher block counters, stainless steel appliances, and flows easily out past the washer/dryer nook to the ample back deck with its view of the garden. It's a perfect house for entertaining with an easy flow from front to back.

The three bedrooms begin with the front bedroom, which has high private windows and period details. This room would also be great as an office. The master bedroom is large and leads to the freshly tiled master bath that has been fully remodeled. The back is quiet and overlooks the garden and is opposite a detailed bath with shower. 

The garden is a perfect size for puttering and sitting with a book or for an urban gardener's exploration of heirloom seeds. Here's a home that combines old school charm with the just the perfect hip location.

Although one of the oldest (and most storied) neighborhoods in Oakland, in the late 1800s, Temescal served as little more than a train stop for cars traveling from downtown Oakland to Berkeley. But as the town grew, so, too, did its residents’ desire for a better quality of life, and, at the close of that century, they voted to join the City of Oakland in an effort to gain access to better public schools and police services.

In a Few Words

On the rise

Living Here

Although its streets are no longer lined with train cars, Temescal is still a go-to destination for those attracted to its trendy retailers and restaurants. In the heart of Temescal, where Telegraph Avenue inches toward 51st Street, you’ll find what locals and patrons have dubbed as the East Bay’s second Gourmet Ghetto:


Temescal is also known for its great art scene. The Temescal Art Center offer classes, performances, and workshops to keep you active, cultured, and entertained.

Why Temescal?

Over the past few years, real estate values in Temescal have experienced a steady rise. In addition, newly built condominiums, developments, and lofts continue to add to the neighborhood’s popularity.
