About 2942 MacArthur Boulevard

Welcome Home

Welcome home to 2942 MacArthur Boulevard, an enchanting garden oasis in the heart of Oakland - smack dab in the middle of the Glenview-to-Laurel corridor. This lovingly updated Mediterranean style Craftsman is light & bright, with 2 ample bedrooms, formal dining room, 2 full bathrooms, updated kitchen, central space for home office or breakfast nook, a private and serene rear yard, & a generous interior laundry room. Downstairs in the finished basement, you’ll find the added treasure of two non-conforming bonus spaces, including a half bath, with tile floors, waiting to serve whatever your imagination dreams up.  A dedicated office space, music rehearsal space, hobby room, storage for toys?  You decide.  Not included in the sq. ft., but this space allows the home to live larger.

The living room with traditional arched windows & stone fireplace opens to an ample formal dining room, providing a gracious space for lounging at home or hosting larger gatherings of family & friends.

The updated kitchen at the heart of the home offers newer quartz counters, vinyl plank flooring, stainless & black appliances, (including a large side-by-side-door fridge).  Recessed lighting & lighter colors keeps the look clean & modern, while the honed stone tile backsplash honors the traditional charm. The modular layout of the kitchen affords generous options for adding extensive storage, or utility as an eat-in kitchen, play space, or office nook.

A large dedicated laundry room off the kitchen includes newer front load washer & dryer.

The versatile & serene back garden is a truly great space for planting, entertaining, or simply hanging out to relax. It includes raised planter beds, a decomposed-granite patio that is perfect for BBQ, fire pit or a table, & a generous stone patio & walkway.  A separate deeply shaded deck invites you to lounge on sunny days to read, enjoy a cold beverage, & watch the hummingbirds dart among the morning glory blossoms.  This is the tomato-belt of Oakland, so you’ll love the sun and shade provided here.

Off street parking is easy with a street level garage with a new automatic garage door.  The few steps up from the street carry you a world away from the hustle & bustle of city life.   Welcome home to a little slice of paradise in the heart of Oakland!
