About 55 Melvin Court
Tucked in down a private lane in the lovely Oakmore neighborhood, this newly renovated gem welcomes you home with soaring ceilings and expansive views. Look out over the trees to the Bay and feel yourself begin to unwind. Relax on the deck before heading to the newly renovated kitchen to put the finishing touches on tonights dinner. Should you eat outside under the stars? Definitely. Let the conversation flow around you as you watch the sun set, the stars come out, and the city lights begin to twinkle. Move inside for coffee and dessert in front of the fire in the 2 story living area. End the evening with a movie in the game room. Then take one last look at the stars before bed while you listen to the wind in the trees.
This contemporary, light filled home has been tastefully updated with an all-new kitchen and beautifully refinished hardwood floors. The eat-in kitchen features a gas stove and hood, quartz counters, and new appliances. New vanities grace the bathrooms and all 3 bedrooms feature new carpet. Convert the downstairs bedroom to an office, ensuring that “working from home” doesn’t become “living at work.” The huge bonus room is perfect for in-home movies, a game room, or an art studio, or an extra guest room.
A lot of care and attention went into restoring and updating this beauty. It's ready to welcome you home.

Take a Tour of 55 Melvin Court
Gorgeous homes and close proximity to parks, restaurants, shopping, and transportation make Oakmore one on Oaklands most highly desirable neighborhoods. Treelined, curving streets give you the feeling of being away from it all. But with all the culinary choices, hip shops, and many amenities that make Oakland so much fun close by, you also have the best of city living. Pop by Rocky’s gourmet market in the neighborhood to grab some rosé, cheese and olives on the way home or get take out Thai or pizza just a few blocks down on Leimert. Head to Glenview for great Italian or Mexican, a yoga class or a manicure, or brunch with friends. You can argue over which of the several options is the favorite. After running errands or doing your holiday shopping in Montclair, take a break at a café or pick up a book from the library. Nearby, you’ll find the urban vibe of the Dimond in one direction and the tranquility of Joaquin Miller Park in the other. The newly landscaped Dimond Park is less than a mile away and has a creek, playground, tennis courts, a public pool, and ample picnic spots. Stroll along Sausal Creek all the way to the Joaquin Miller Park trails. When the rest of the Bay Area beckons, you’ve got easy access to highways 24/13/580 and both transbay and local transit from Park Blvd. and Montclair. City living among the trees with a view – you can have it all right here.
