"I highly recommend Andrew Pitarre. I selected him because I saw how much he improved a rather sad looking house before sale. I showed him around and told him what I thought the weaknesses of the house were (which he agreed with). I liked his experience and his way of approaching a house, leveraging his contracting skills as well as his real estate skills. When he returned he brought some wonderful suggestions to maximize the mid-century modern aspects of the house and correct its weaknesses. The budget and reward for making upgrades seemed entirely reasonable. Andy has great people working for him, both on the design side and the construction side. The house ended up being a gem. He and his crews did exactly what they said they would do. The project came in under budget and the house sold for $80,000 more than his original high estimate. I am a very happy camper."
Mid-Century Modern View Gem
First time on the market in 30 years! Everyone’s favorite design style comes to life in this thoughtfully refreshed mid-century modern hillside jewel in the Lincoln Highlands/Hidden Gem neighborhood. Spanning up to 2,240 square feet, this hillside house is brimming with character, casual warmth and positive vibes. Inside, you’ve got stunning sunset and city light views spanning from San Francisco to the Bay expanding from the living room and balcony. An open floorplan creates effortless flow from the extra-large living room, dining and kitchen. A tremendous amount of care was taken to enhance and retain the mid-century modern character throughout, as seen in details like the custom see-through shelving in the main living area, refinished original wood floors and custom fireplace surround. The kitchen has open shelving, casual bar seating, stainless steel appliances and plenty of counter and storage space, plus connectivity to the private yard and patio space if you want to take meals outside. There are two bedrooms upstairs, including a primary bedroom suite with a bathroom highlighted by custom tile and wood shelving. The lower level floorplan has great flex space, so the house can grow with your needs. A large lower family room has a kitchenette for entertaining guests, but it could also be easily converted into a rec room or hangout space, since it has access to the outdoors via French doors. A large third bedroom on this level could also double as office space. The unique layout could also be suitable for an in-law, au pair or renter situation. Other pluses include a large laundry room with side-by-side washer, ample storage space, solar panels, and continuous investment in the home’s infrastructure through the years.
Recently rehabbed from top to bottom with a conscientious design eye and a local’s touch, this house is filled with hand-selected details that make it truly special for the area. From the designer paint scheme to the new lighting and door hardware, you must see this style-forward makeover firsthand to appreciate the care that went into creating a home that the next homeowners will enjoy for a generation.
Beyond the home, you’ll have an excellent location close to Montclair, Dimond/Laurel, Woodminster, Joaquin Miller Regional Park and all that Oakland has to offer. Close access to Highway 13 and 580 also makes getting around easy.
Don’t miss this rare gem — it won’t last long!
Nestled in the hills east of Oakland, Lincoln Highlands is one of East Bay’s best-kept secrets. This quiet hillside neighborhood is adjacent to lively shopping districts like Montclair and Glenview, up-and-coming neighborhoods like Woodminster and Dimond/Laurel, as well as Oakland's beloved Joaquin Miller and Redwood Regional Parks. Many homeowners enjoy generously sized lots with hillside and bay views — a pleasant retreat from the city. Residents also love it for its rare mix of urban amenities and proximity to Oakland, combined with its closeness to open space that allows for pleasant evening walks, hikes, bike rides, horseback rides and other forms of outdoor recreation. A wide variety of year-round events and activities in Oakland and the surrounding areas give Lincoln Highlands a unique community feel. Some favorite neighborhood pastimes include: the Woodminster Summer Musical Series, Oakland Greek Festival, Oaktoberfest in Dimond and Montclair Farmers Market on Sunday mornings, among others.
A known family favorite nearby is the Chabot Space and Science Center, a famed observatory with three large telescopes that are free to the public on Friday and Saturday evenings. Other local conveniences residents enjoy include L’Acajou (a great bakery and cafe for breakfast, lunch or baked goods), Woodminster Market (for last minute grocery items), Monaghan’s Bar and Grill (for a quick meal out or to catch a ball game), Patty & Buns (for burgers and milkshakes) and Montclair Village Hardware, which has friendly staff who are always ready to help you find what you are looking for quickly.
