A Neighborhood for Every Lifestyle
Loved and adored and fully restored! A beloved Craftsman home awaits its next owners on Kingsland Ave in sunny Maxwell Park. The giant weeping Mayten and Japanese Maple trees greet you as you step inside this peaceful oasis. From the matchstick floors to the completely rebuilt chimney and dual pane windows, every detail in this 3 bedroom 1 bath home has been lovingly touched and meticulously maintained. The living room features a wood burning fireplace, upgraded with gas insert. And of course, signature to every craftsman, is the original built-in cabinetry gracing the dining room. Awash with sunlight through the beautiful windows and skylight, the updated kitchen is truly the heart of this home though. Thoughtfully designed storage makes use of every nook and corner with clever organization built in. Abundant countertops and a multi tasking butcher block cart that doubles as an island, provide abundant workspace for food prep, and projects or homework. Open the backdoor to enjoy your morning coffee on the patio among the many species of birds that come to serenade you. The garden is full of fragrant blossoms, from gardenias to the succulent fruit trees that prolifically bear Japanese Pear Apples, Oranges, and the sweetest Apples your neighbors will love you for. Plenty of space to plant a garden, play, and enjoy year long meals, as Maxwell Park enjoys one of the warmest micro climates in Oakland.
The fully rebuilt garage can house a small car, but makes a wonderful workshop or art studio as well. Additional storage in the basement laundry area and crawl space.
Nestled in-between High Street and 55th Avenue, just south of Interstate-580, Maxwell Park is a popular neighborhood in East Oakland. Originally developed by John P.

Residents of Maxwell Park are within close proximity to Mills College, small shopping plazas, restaurants, and plenty of public transit options.
As the neighborhood name might suggest, Maxwell Park offers a small community park near Allendale Avenue and Lilac Street. Featuring plenty of trees, a playground, and is directly next to the Peter Pan Nursery School, which has provided a nurturing environment for kids aged 2-6 since 1947. Add in the convenient access to incredible schools like Melrose Leadership Academy, and you can see why families love living in Maxwell Park.
