A jewel box in Oakland’s Millsmont neighborhood! An inviting front porch beckons you in to a bright and airy open living space. This home blends modern upgrades with old warm charm seamlessly from the sun filled breakfast nook to the cozy fireplace to the upgraded kitchen with plentiful counter space and storage. Just outside is a large sunny deck overlooking the level backyard ideal for grilling, al fresco dining, gardening and play. You’ll be enchanted by the colony of Gulf fritillary butterflies who’ve made their home in the passion flower vines along the side fence. A partial unfinished basement offers expansion potential or just extra space for storage. Located on a sweet, welcoming street, you’re just a few blocks from an SF bound bus for easy commutes in to the city.
Nestled in the foothills of East Oakland, Millsmont is one of the most exciting and eclectic neighborhoods in the High East Bay area. The neighborhood’s real estate features a unique mix of architectural styles, including those of the Spanish, Mission, and cottage-type homes. Residents of Millsmont enjoy easy access to Interstate 580, which hugs the northeastern border of the community, which makes commuting to/from Oakland and San Francisco a breeze.
Mills College, located on the northwestern border of Millsmont, is one of the most historic liberal arts universities in the United States. Founded in 1852, and relocated to Oakland in 1871, Mills College began as Young Ladies Seminary, the first women’s college in the Western US. Today, Mills College is an all-female undergraduate university with graduate programs available to all genders. Since Millsmont is within walking distance of Mills College, the neighborhood is an ideal place to live for faculty, staff, and students.
Having the ability to enjoy a nice public park is an added bonus for Oakland residents, can Millsmont residents enjoy easy access to Concordia Park. The park received national attention when the Golden State Warriors’ own Steph Curry assisted with renovating the park’s basketball courts. Other features of the park include a baseball field and a playground for the kids. Millsmont is not only a great place for university faculty and students, but for families as well.
One of the main reasons people love living in Millsmont is the convenient highway access. Not only is the neighborhood hugged by I-580, it is also a short drive from the CA 13, which provides a direct route to popular landmarks such as Temescal Regional Recreation Area and Holy Names University. For those who prefer to use public transit, a short walk to the Camden St/MacArthur Boulevard bus stop takes passengers to the heart of San Francisco via the NL Transit Route. Whether residents prefer the bus or hitching a ride to the nearby Coliseum BART Station, Millmont is only a 60-75 minute ride to the Financial District and Google headquarters.
