Just above the Grand Lake Theater, you’ll find this stunning Grand Lake Traditional home. Surrounded by wonderful gardens, this is one of the original grand homes of the area. Its great open rooms and many period details suggest an elegance not often found today. There are three large bedrooms, including a large master suite, plus an office and sunroom with a view of Oakland. And for guests and ricocheting twenty-somethings, there’s a separate au pair suite. Now brought into the twenty-first century, it’s been tastefully upgraded and updated for new owners to live in grand style in one of Oakland’s most happening neighborhoods.
Lakeshore / Upper Grand
Rolling hills, wooded valleys, flower filled parks. Streets wind through the hills in the "residential park" of Lakeshore. Inspired by England's "garden suburbs," famed landscape architects Olmsted Brothers laid out winding streets following the natural contours of the land. Homes date from the 1920 and 30s, with original owners hiring some of the most notable Oakland architects of the time, including Julia Morgan, Maybeck & White, and Charles McCall. Today the neighborhood still retains its period flavor, with large romantic homes in the Italian Renaissance, Tudor, Spanish, Monterey, French provincial, and Colonial styles lending a sense of country charm.
Lakeshore Highlands is close to the Lakeshore and Grand Avenue shopping districts. Elementary Schools include Crocker Highlands Elementary and Edna Brewer Middle School.
