For those of you who love Victorians, this may be one of the best chances in your life to live in an historically significant home. The house was completed in 1885 for Elijah and Margaret Whitaker. They lived in it for over 30 years and raised six children. At the time of Mr. Whitaker's death in 1925 it was said that he "owned half of downtown Oakland." It was purchased 12 years ago by a couple from Marin who have lovingly restored the property top-to-bottom. In addition to all of the period restoration that was done (and there has been a ton of that), they also replaced the entire foundation. The owners continue to occupy the main floor on a part-time basis. The owners are offering for rent the second floor, which is essentially a spacious two bedroom apartment. The property sits on 1/4 of an acre so there is lots and lots of off-street parking and entertaining space. The owners will also allow the residents to use their large bar-b-que and smoker. We could go on-and-on in this ad, but the reality is that you really need to see it to understand it. The pictures simply do not do it justice OPEN HOUSE: Tonight! March 1st from 6:45pm to 7:15pm.
