Tucked away behind a wrought iron gate on a quiet street in Lower Maxwell Park there sits a beautiful blue bungalow with a bright yellow door.  You might not see the door immediately because it is partially hidden by a big evergreen Curly Willow tree in front that stands majestically at the foot of the front stairs.  Once inside, that same tree provides for a secluded green view from the living room windows in the middle of an urban neighborhood that is close to everything including BART and shops and restaurants.  This is the perfect house for first time buyers or young couples starting out or for someone who wants to downsize to a home that takes less care.  Come inside and you will find hardwood floors, a cozy fireplace in the living room, a formal dining room and a spacious modern kitchen.  The hallway leads to a bathroom and two spacious bedrooms, each with an ample closet and hardwood floors.  The house, while not large feels big and open because the floorplan makes sense.  It also feels big and bright due an abundance of double paned windows that let in light but keep out heat and cold and ambient noise.  At the back of the house the kitchen door opens to a cozy deck that runs the length of the back of the house and overlooks the very private rear yard with it’s firepit, and strands of outdoor lights crisscrossing the gathering area next to the Casita.  The yard has several exotic and more common fruit trees such as a plum, a papaya and an “Andean Tree Tomato” relative to the passion fruit.  Potted Meyer Lemon and Lime trees flank the steps of the Casita.  Imagine having friends gather for a BBQ here and end the night roasting marshmallows around the firepit.

All this can be yours to enjoy and add to as the new owners of 4726 Melrose Ave. Oakland.  Come see for yourself.  You’ll be glad you did.
