Commuter's Dream: A Grand Home Close to BART

Being so close to the major technology hub of the world in Silicon Valley, commuting has become quite the issue in the Bay Area.  Those who work in the San Francisco / Bay Area often commute by BART.

With the increasing cost of homes and condos in San Francisco, young professionals and families alike are leaving the overcrowded city and are dispersing throughout the East Bay.  This has led to an increase of homes sold close to BART, casual carpool pick up locations and other public transportation

Neighborhoods such as NOBE (North Oakland, Berkeley and Emeryville) have experienced an upswing in homes sold due to the fact that they’re conveniently close to BART and freeway access.  In fact, NOBE average prices are up 25% over last year. 

708 62nd St, Oakland, CA - Click here to find out more about this beautifully renovated Edwardian Craftsman condo for sale in NOBE, near BART.

And just two blocks to BART, right in the heart of NOBE, you’ll find this incredibly renovated Edwardian Craftsman condominium.  Grand in scale, with over 1,400 square feet, it is like a house in itself.  Bay windows, details and high ceilings give the character for the period.  A great room/open kitchen with granite counters, stainless steel appliances and ebony-stained floors fast forward you to today.  Three bedrooms and two baths are laid out to give you privacy when desired.  A French door takes you to the delightful garden with separate studio or storage space. 

So if you’re interested in making a change to your commute, give us a call at (510) 847-2409 for more information on this home at 708 62nd Street (www.708-62ndStreet) or other listings in NOBE and East Bay neighborhoods.
