Welcome to 5556 Claremont Avenue, a one-of-a-kind magical property that effortlessly blends seclusion and nature with the best of urban living. This charming two bedroom, one bath Craftsman home on a generous 14,000 square foot lot is the perfect setting for those who crave being outdoors, while at the same time enjoy close proximity to transit and the trendy Rockridge commercial district. The grounds have been transformed into a wooded oasis, with raised garden beds, a small fruit orchard, and a large workshop/storage shed. The enchanting tiny house is perfect as a meditation spot or a detached office space. At night the outdoor flagstone patio dazzles with string lights, and serves as a great gathering spot for company complete with a pizza oven. While the property is truly unique for the area, the house itself has also been tastefully updated. With charming 100 year-old Craftsman details the home features a cozy front room with a gas fireplace, formal dining room, remodeled and expanded kitchen and a fenestrated sunroom leading out to an expansive patio. Two charming sunny bedrooms share a modern bathroom with radiant heated slate floors and a grey water system to sustainably irrigate the grounds.
Located an easy two blocks to the heart of Rockridge complete with retail shopping, sought-after dining, schools, parks, BART, casual carpool and more! This is a home not to miss.
