Co- Listed with Claudia Mills
Built in 1926, as one of the first few homes in the newly imagined Rockridge Property Development, 6150 S. Rockridge Blvd. offered new home buyers the opportunity to enjoy a stately home on a generous and wide street in a new Oakland enclave.
It was dubbed The New Albion House and was built in an elegant fashion with a multitude of lighted windows and gracious public spaces. The three bed, two and a half bath traditional Tudor checked every box and still does, even after nearly 100 years. Just moments from Rockridge Park, Prospect Steps, and the numerous sought-after Rockridge amenities, it is perched just high enough to enjoy hill and bay views.
A lion’s head knocker greets you at the front door leading to a gracious entry space with a beautifully curved step up to the kitchen and dining. Ahead, the recently updated kitchen features stone countertops, new cabinetry, and hardwood flooring. From here, the home has a circular flow to a private rear courtyard, a large sunlit living room featuring an expansive fireplace, and a formal dining room.
Up the traditional staircase, you find city views through the original leaded glass windows. The primary bedroom takes full advantage of the sights and is complete with an ensuite bath, and expanded walk-in closet cleverly tucked under the eave of the home. Two additional generous bedrooms each feature double closets and share a remodeled bath with beautiful vistas from every space.
The front of the home has pleasantly landscaped paths, with a garage and driveway for additional off-street parking. Classic in design, yet modern in feel, The New Albion House is one of a kind, in a desirable Rockridge location. Just moments from all the shops, salons and fine dining found on College Avenue, and with incredibly easy access to SF via the freeway and BART, plus terrific schools, this is a perfect place to call home.
