About 682 Jean Street

Welcome Home

“It is so cute and unique!” said the Seller, when she purchased this stunning duplex exactly 5 years ago. “The classic built-ins, updated kitchen + baths, fantastic Grand Lake neighborhood, and hillside views are perfect...and look at the red spiral staircase into the yard!” she exclaimed. She couldn’t wait to move in with her partner. It was there that they hosted their wedding party, entertained friends, and bbq’d with neighbors. To supplement the mortgage they lived in one unit and rented out the other; each unit had their own outdoor deck and it never felt crowded. They did a structural retrofit, rebuilt the decks, and upgraded the electrical; evenings were spent walking around The Rose Garden, eating pizza at Sister, picking up groceries at Safeway, or selecting books from Walden Pond Books, a neighborhood gem. The bus stop is right there on the corner, and downtown Oakland is a hop away. Most of all, they will miss the neighbors and all of the baked goods they would share.

  1. Stop and smell the blossoms at Morcom Rose Garden, a 7-acre oasis just two blocks away!

  3. Take a quick 5 min. drive to Lake Merritt to picnic, boat, jog, visit the Bonsai Garden, or zoom around the lagoon on an electric scooter rental.
  4. Play at Children’s Fairyland along Lake Merritt. Puppet shows, train, merry-go-round, ponies, and more!
  5. Stock up on sweet strawberries and organic veggies at the Grand Lake Farmer’s Market, a Saturday institution. Live music, too! 4-min. car ride or 12-min. stroll.
  6. You’re dangerously close (2 min.!) to Zachary’s Chicago Style Pizza on Grand Ave.
  7. Indulge in a date night at The Wolf, 5 min. away on Piedmont Ave. Put a cherry on top at Fenton’s Creamery.
