Looking for a cute home in Castro Valley’s desirable Upper Redwoods Neighborhood? How about an entertainer’s dream come true? Want a home cozy enough for a family, yet large enough to host any number of friends and guests? Love Retro? This is it!
A trip up Castro Valley’s scenic Seven Hills Road brings you to this home – loving cared for by the existing owners, it’s waiting for you to make it home! Up the brick-nosed steps and through the front door, you’ll notice beautiful hardwood floors stretching out in all directions. The living room, complete with a beautiful brick surround fireplace and mantel, is oriented to the south to capture the morning sun.
Looking for a classic kitchen? It’s hard to find one like this anymore – most have been “upgraded” with generic cabinets and finishes – this space hearkens back to a slower, more peaceful generation. Abundant windows allow light to stream in, and the period colors magnify the sunlight to infuse zest into your cooking! The washer and dryer are conveniently located right next door, along with a door to the rear yard.
Down the hall are the three bedrooms. The front room includes period bead board and built in cabinets! The large rear room has two closets. Storage is provided in the hallway, and the main bathroom is just as it was built back in the day! Not only does it feature a tub, it includes a separate shower as well.
Venture down the stairs and enter a wonderful, “Retro” environment! Whether you call this a “man-cave”, “media room”, “family room” or “Party Central,” it’s a great space for relaxing, entertaining and SO much more! A commercial sink lines one wall, mirrored by a stainless steel counter on the other side. Hosting a large gathering? It doesn’t get any better than this! There is also extensive storage space on this level, as well as access to the 2-car garage.
The rear yard is simply amazing! Complete with multi-level terraces, it includes a built-in spa, large wood deck, conversation pit, raised planter boxes, luscious landscaping … there is no end of uses for this very special space! Soak in the spa, entertain friends, raise your own herbs and spices … the only limit is your imagination. As a bonus, Castro Valley Community Park is a short hike up the road, and Lake Chabot is mere minutes away.
It’s all here, the only thing missing … is YOU!
