DETAILS | 668 Jean St. is a rosy Rose Garden cottage ready to make your acquaintance. You might call Jean a Spanish Revival Mediterranean Craftsman, artfully combining features of several stylistic traditions with a Spanish tiled portico and handsome parapet paired with divided-lite windows inspired by the Arts & Crafts movement. The special window pattern repeats throughout the house – a sweet architectural refrain! Built-in bookshelves flank the living room fireplace. Breakfast room with beautiful built-in cabinet. The most nifty little fold-down telephone seat from back when every house had a land line. Sunny kitchen leads out to the back patio. Hardwood floors. Great light. Beautiful vistas from the rooftops of Oakland and Piedmont to the hills. You might call Jean spiffy, with such lush surroundings from the gorgeous Japanese maple and salvias and succulents to the delightful little stone pathway. Jean welcomes the hummingbirds and the monarchs, both regular visitors.

Attached garage for parking, office, workshop. Plenty of storage. Expansion potential. Sidewalk and sewer compliant.

Perfect location up the street from the Morcom Rose Garden, Oakland’s enchanting “Amphitheater of Roses” with over 6,000 rose bushes in a 7-acre public garden. Just a couple of blocks from everybody’s favorite Zachary’s Pizza. Lake Merritt and all the shops on Grand and Lakeshore are within a mile.

Stylish and sophisticated yet comfortable and approachable, you just might call Jean your new home.
