About 4336 Evans Avenue

Lovingly Restored Craftsman in Ideal Location

Congratulations. You've found your forever home. 4336 Evans checks all your boxes - beautifully proportioned, generous spaces, livability, integrated outdoor living, a great location, schools, amenities, and transit. It's got you.

As you enter the elegant foyer, take a moment to absorb the carefully preserved period details. The original wood gleams in the spacious living and dining rooms. Classic fixtures light up the warm tones and highlight the original cabinetry with glass doors and hardware. Listen and you'll hear the ice tinkling in the glasses as your friends and family gather around the fireplace or sit down to a holiday feast. Holidays will be especially fun when you can all share in the cooking. The kitchen features ample storage and new tile and solid counters, plus room for many helping hands. Even the dog can be with you without getting underfoot. He's just come in through the mudroom, where he politely wiped his paws. You weren't sure what a mudroom was when you lived in your apartment in the city. Now you can't imagine life without it. Between it and the powder room next to the back door, which leads to the patio and the hot tub, yes, the hot tub, everything you want is right here.

There is something different about this house. It may take you a moment to notice it. You've looked at other Craftsman beauties, but not like this one. Give it a minute. The loving, authentic restoration gives it a fresh look while staying in keeping with the architectural details and the original design. It is gorgeous, and beautifully proportioned, but that's not it. It's so close to the Glenview shops and amenities, fantastic Dimond park, schools, and transit, and within minutes of two other great neighborhoods, the Dimond and Montclair. But that's not it either. Is it the oversized yard? With the patio and play areas? Delightful, but no.

Give up? Okay. You love how it looks, but also how it feels. You're warm, or cool, depending on what you want to be. The lights light up and the car is plugged in. The doors open and close and the floors gleam. When you need to go to work, there is an office / ADU. You can work from home without working in your home. Perfect.

Your home has to be both gorgeous and feel wonderful. But it's the practical, boring stuff that can really matter. 4336 Evans has been lovingly cared for and designed to be both comfortable and beautiful. Skilled craftspeople, designers, and tradespeople have restored and maintained its beauty while adding those important modern niceties like 225 amp electrical, seismic work, car charging, energy saving light fixtures, and a heat pump that keeps you warm in the winter and the bedrooms cool in the summer. Even the closet doors got the touch. They open and close smoothly, but they are 1920's vintage gumwood and they are perfect for the primary suite space.

With 4 spacious bedrooms and 3 baths, plus the ADU work or guest space, great schools, easy transit, and amenities seconds away, you have everything you need for years to come. You'll be making memories instead of making upgrade tradeoff decisions, contemplating a move for more space, or thinking about tuition. Welcome home. We're so glad you're here to stay.

Location Details

Spacious, comfortable living with generous outdoor spaces on a tree lined street (with decent parking) AND shops? Restaurants? Transit? All 2 minutes away? Yes. Meet friends for brunch at Blackberry Bistro or pick up a pizza at Marzano. It’ll be ready in 10 minutes? Great, you’ve got 5 minutes to finish that email before you go. Take the kids to Mr. Dewie’s for an ice cream treat and stop at the Savemore Market to pick up a few things for dinner. Send Mom’s birthday present and drop off the cleaning on the way. Most of what you need for fun and function is right here. If it’s not, it’s in the nearby Dimond or Montclair.

Start your day with a swim at Lions Pool. It’s right at the end of the street in Dimond Park. Pick up a coffee at Ultimate Grounds on the way home. It’s time to rouse the kids for school. They’ll love Glenview Elementary and so will you. They can scoot or walk or roll – while you carry their stuff. Not to worry, you don’t have far to carry the cello. School drop off is only down the street. Wave goodbye and then pick up the Transbay or local bus right on Park Blvd. You’ll be in San Francisco or downtown Oakland in no time.

After work, rock / paper / scissors with your spouse for who gets to go to class at Park Yoga and who’s going to Dimond Park for the swings and the dog. Or turn it into a family adventure with a trail walk. Check out the picnic areas. One might be perfect for a birthday party. On the weekends, end up at the Dimond Branch library to choose the weeks bedtime reading and then pick between Indian, Thai, Mexican, Californian, old school burgers, Vietnamese, pizza, Chinese, or Sushi for a take out treat from the Dimond’s many eateries. The options are practically endless. You’ll be here for many happy years, but you won’t ever have to go far for what you need, and what you want.
