903-905 61st Street is a wonderful “townhome” style duplex located in the North Oakland neighbor of“NOBE”. This duplex has two bedroom, one bath units that are on two levels, the living areas on the main level and the bedrooms located upstairs. One unit has just been updated with a new designer kitchen, upgraded bath, just painted and refinished hardwood floors. This unit has a more modern “vibe” and is very light, ready for new owners to occupy or rent.

The second unit also was updated and has been rented for a few years. There are great tenants here and the rent is close to market rents. Both units get lots of sunlight and show well. There is a common laundry room conveniently located off the kitchen of both units. A detached 2+ car garage also has lots of room for  storage, or could be used as an office/workshop space.

The building has been recently painted and is in great condition. The first thing you will notice about the site is that you don’t have any neighbors on either side of this property, it sits at the end of a small block, offering you lots of privacy and a really open feel. You’ll  get good sunlight in all of your windows with no neighbors nearby.

This property also has an Approved Mini-Lot Subdivision proposal so if you are looking for something you can develop or add another structure to this could be a great opportunity for you.

This location in North Oakland is a haven for homebuyers these days. There are new cafes and restaurants opening all the time in the area, adding to the many places residents go to meet and hang out with family and friends. You’ll find lots of small cafes, a variety of restaurants, and even some local brewpubs. There are also lots of services in the area, yoga studios, and plenty of employers such as Pixar Studios, Pandora Media, and UCSF Benioff Children’s Hospital.

This location is also just 0.6 miles from Ashby BART and has a Walkscore of 83 - Very Walkable, and a Bike Score of 93 - Biker's Paradise!


N.O.B.E. - North Oakland Neighborhood

N.O.B.E. is a relatively new name for an old part of Oakland. This area includes many older neighbors with names like Golden Gate, Bushrod Park, Longfellow, Paradise Park, Gaskill and a few others. It also includes the eastern part of Emeryville close to San Pablo Avenue and also the southernmost part of Berkeley. Many of the homes were built in the very early 1900’s and a few before that. There are also homes from the 1930’s and 1940’s as well.

One of the major draws for this area is the closeness to transportation and a variety of jobs. Some say this N. Oakland neighbor is closer to downtown San Francisco than many of the neighborhoods in San Francisco. You’ll have Ashby BART and MacArthur BART for access to most of the Bay Area and fast access to several main freeways. Rockridge BART is nearby, too.

You’ll also find lots of restaurant options in and around N.O.B.E. and it seems like there are new ones opening all the time. There are many old staples and a variety of cuisines to enjoy. The Emeryville and Berkeley waterfronts are nearby, as well as other outdoor options. There are also several neighborhood Farmer’s Markets, several are walking distance from this property. There are plenty of other services, yoga studios and art galleries in the area, too.
