About

Welcome to 8499 Aster Avenue, a colorful Mid-Century gem located in the Oak Knoll / King Estates neighborhood of Oakland.  Built in 1959, this sweet home features classic mid-century architecture that has been well-loved by the same family for years.

Owned by the same family for nearly 6 decades, the Low Family has worked hard to maintain the home’s authenticity.  Upon entry you will be greeted by a built-in louvered room divider with cabinet, directing you to the living room.  As the centerpiece of the home, the living room features vaulted ceilings lined with exposed beams, a stunning wood burning fireplace with a classic wooden mantle, and impressive yet minimalistic windows that bring the outside in, all characteristics of the mid-century aesthetic.  The original kitchen boasts a gas cooktop, loads of cabinet space, and access to the attached dining room.  Off the dining room is a bright + sunny family room with walls of preserved wood paneling set beneath walls of windows; if you stare out long enough you might believe you could soar into the sky. 

Opposite the living area you will find 3 spacious bedrooms, each with windows that show off the artistic designs by Sanchez Ornamental Iron Works.  The 2.5 bathrooms feature original, impeccable vintage tile, one with teal, one with pink, and the en-suite bathroom with powder blue tile, full of style and color. 

The 1,765 square-foot house sits on a large 7,650 square-foot lot.  The asian-inspired front garden is dotted with Chinese juniper trees, salt+pepper rocks, and a hand-built fountain.  The level backyard offers creative visionaries an opportunity to create + restore.
