1836 Clemens Road
Curb appeal. This 1930s Tudor sparks all the joy, from the arch details echoing the home’s original architecture, the decorative half-timbering and parquet hardwood floors to the warm, sunshiny spirit of a fairy tale house. The happily-ever-after includes an updated kitchen and bathrooms — a careful renovation that refreshed the rooms but preserved the character of the house — and a private, lush back yard with comfortable spaces for relaxing and entertaining alfresco.
The entryway affords a first glimpse into the home’s style, hinting at the substance within. The parquet floors — painstakingly crafted into the iconic geometric patterns by artisans of the era — add an immediate sense of elegance, and the light washing in through oversized windows in the formal living and dining rooms bring the rooms to life. Repeating arch details, in the ceiling, passage and door ways, add to the spacious feel; the dramatic fireplace creates a warm focal point and another example of artisan touches. The large L-shaped kitchen balances style with function, using a chic gray and white color palette, the space feels comfortable and modern; paned windows fill the breakfast nook with light, creating an ideal spot to linger with a cup of coffee or enjoy a casual family meal. Two bedrooms and a half bath complete the first floor — a friendly floor plan that allows for flexibility and easily adapts to fit the needs and tastes of a modern homeowner.
Upstairs, a graceful balance of classic traditional and relaxed calm, with wood floors and an easy neutral palette throughout. Large windows draw light, breezes, and the fragrance of a lemon tree into the master bedroom that seemingly floats amidst the verdant back yard; boundaries between the inside and outside are softened, and a glass door is a private entrance to the magical garden. The soothing retreat features a private en suite bath, with simple neutral-toned counters and tile. A fourth bedroom is bright, airy, and filled with natural light, and the hallway bath is a tasteful blend of white quartz and tile. A bonus space serves as a sitting or family room, with endless options for creative use.
On the lower level you’ll find abundant storage — including generous closet space — and access to the attached garage. Outside, mature landscaping provides privacy with a series of outdoor spaces intended for living and entertaining — a shaded patio and built-in barbecue for dining, and a manicured, grassy lawn for play — designed to take advantage of Oakland’s idyllic weather. With tree-lined streets and a beautiful mix of gracious architectural styles, the sought-after Oakmore neighborhood feels like a hometown. A vibrant and active community, with restaurants, shops, parks and commute options just moments away — the mix of quiet comfort and urban amenities strikes just the right note: home.
