Welcome to 1984 42nd Ave
This sweet craftsman bungalow lives where warm period details meet contemporary style and conveniences. Walk past the classic front porch (lemonade anyone?) and enter a world where rich wood trim, built-in glass front cabinetry and a ceramic tiled fireplace bring you back to simpler times when craftsmanship was king. Details including a pull-down writing desk, inlaid wood flooring and two toned wood picture railings continue to tell the story. The formal dining room which is placed perfectly between the kitchen and living room is ideally sized for your next dinner party and is complete with an easy access built-in hutch buffet.
With brand new cabinetry, quartz counters and sleek flooring, the kitchen takes its cues from yesterday. A cozy breakfast nook overlooks the expansive south facing view. It also provides easy access to the bead-board accented laundry hall with direct access to the huge yard. Both bedrooms are separated by an updated bathroom.
The backyard adds an entirely different element, particularly for someone with a little bit of imagination and a moderately excitable green thumb. Fruit trees, a relatively flat grade and room for days to create, plant and develop to your taste. This is where the sun shines, so take advantage of it!
There is a one car garage and a very long driveway to provide parking for at least 3 cars and a few two-wheelers as well. Walk to Fruitvale BART station and access both 580 and 880 within minutes. Located on a friendly, tree-lined block of fellow Craftsmans, it would be easy to call this sweet house your home.
