242 Oakland Avenue
You know that woman with the fabulous style, you see her walking down the street in a new pair of jeans, her boyfriend's t-shirt, and her grandma's vintage blazer. Her effortless style blends textures, eras, and is casual chic. Much like this dapper dame, 242 Oakland Ave is a 1908 Bungalow with classic period features and old fir floors, enhanced with an 11-year-old foundation, modern bathrooms and a dreamy backyard with pergola. Elevated from the street but in the heart of the city, she is a classy woman in the center of it all.
Sonja and Justin purchased this 111-year-old Craftsman home with built-ins, pocket doors, and old brick fireplace, as they were drawn to the bones. To complement the space, they renovated the main bathroom with porcelain tiles and touches of marble. The smashing backyard is studded with mature agaves, maples, hellebores, oakleaf hydrangeas to name a few specimens. The pergola is covered in wisteria and jasmine.
