About 3414 Guido Street

Welcome Home

Every once in a while, a truly remarkable home hits the market. 3414 Guido Street in the Oakland hills is that home – an exceptional 1930 Spanish Revival tucked into the coveted Redwood Heights neighborhood. It’s located on the cozy “Lane in Spain,” as locals call the cul-de-sac, and this romantic beauty is rich with original details. Arches. Vaulted ceilings with hewn wood beams. Wrought iron embellishments. White stucco. Ceramic tiles. The 3-bed, 1-bath, 2-story home is such an excellent example of Spanish Revival architecture that it was featured in the lush photographic book “Red Tile Style.” With 1,662 sq. ft. of living space (measured) and a 185 sq. ft. bonus studio with a sleeping loft, this home will charm and surprise you. (There’s even a secret bookshelf door – can you find it?) What’s more, the house is minutes from a beloved elementary school, park, groceries, coffee and the vibrant Montclair, Dimond, and Laurel districts.

From the street, a flagstone path leads to 3414 Guido’s curving front steps. The classic façade mixes stone, brick, fabulous ironwork, and tall arched windows. The welcoming entry is airy and bright with windows and skylights. Lovingly crafted hardwood parquet floors lead to the spacious living room with a vaulted exposed beam ceiling. The centerpiece here is a rustic fireplace adorned with an artisan accent tile. The mantle is held up by decorative blocks depicting a man and horse, reminiscent of Don Quixote. More charming details abound, from curved alcoves to built-in niches in every room. A formal dining room flows into the kitchen with a breakfast nook, stone counters, stainless steel appliances, and tile floors. Adjacent to the kitchen is a laundry area and petite workspace.

On a split level above the main living area are two generous bedrooms and a bathroom with dual sinks, glass-enclosed shower over tub, Spanish tiles, and wrought iron detail. Another bedroom with a picture window is located up a flight of stairs.

The back courtyard, which opens from the kitchen, is an entertainer’s dream with built-in seating and cascading bougainvillea. You’ll want to linger here under twinkling string lights late into the night! Also set in back: A bonus studio/guest room with an inviting sleeping loft (ask about ADU potential) and a detached garage with attic for ample storage.
