Located in one of West Oakland’s most coveted pockets, this 2-story Dogtown home provides excellent space, epic location, and updates that trend in line with everything urban eclectic that has come to define Oakland. A newer sliding gate provides both style and sanctuary from the street for parking and easy use of the front yard space. On the main level, the living room, kitchen, and dining room are updated in chic minimalist boho style. A half bath and interior garage access makes this main living level brilliantly utilitarian. A glass door opens to an adorable rear yard space with smart decking flanked by planter boxes and greenery. Outdoor dining, lounging, and planting can all happen in this private space. A gated dog run on the side of the home is yet another smart feature for homeowners with pets. Upstairs in the main residence quarters, a large primary suite with walk-in closet and a beautifully updated bathroom sits at the front of the house. Two more bedrooms and a stylishly remodeled common bathroom complete the upstairs space. But the best part of 3215 Hannah St is its fantastic location, walkability, and local amenities. The 880, 80, 580, 24, the Bay Bridge, West Oakland Bart, and MacArthur Bart are all easily accessible. East Bay Bridge retail stores, Bay Street in Emeryville, and many more shops throughout North Oakland, West Oakland, Downtown Oakland and surrounding neighborhoods are all close and convenient too. And local favorite restaurants such as the new Horn Barbecue, Stay Gold Deli, Rudy’s Last Chance, and Ghost Town Brewery are right in the immediate vicinity. The home, the location, the neighborhood vibe, and the convenience make 3215 Hannah St. an excellent East Bay spot to call home!
West Oakland is the small, northwestern pocket of Oakland situated north of Alameda and south of Emeryville. It has a population of approximately 32,000 and is home mainly to working-class families, artists, and activists.
West Oakland was the terminus of The Transcontinental Railroad, which was completed toward the end of the 1800s. As a result, the area became home to many Black Americans who were employed by the Pullman Palace Car Company, and others who were now able to move with the help of the newly-completed railroad. In the early 1900s, Latinos (mainly Mexicans, Cubans, and Puerto Ricans) began moving to West Oakland while fleeing the Mexican Revolution.
The Black Panther Party set up their headquarters in West Oakland in the 60s at 7th and Peralta. For the better part of two decades, the group helped provide free breakfast and lunch for local children, free health clinics, and even sickle cell anemia testing. Aretha Franklin, Billie Holiday, T-Bone Walker, Big Mama Thornton, and Al Green all performed along the strip on 7th Street. The exploding Blues scene helped the neighborhood earn the nickname "Harlem of the West." Music, art, and grassroots activism all have a strong hold in the area, even to this day.
Popular restaurants in the area include 10th and Wood (comfort food with a modern twist), Soba Ichi (Japanese cuisine featuring incredible soba noodles) and the 7th West bar. For the thrill-seekers, The Crucible offers industrial art classes including blacksmithing, glassblowing, ceramics, and more. The Kinetic Arts Center fitness & circus arts community for those who want to stay fit with a little more excitement than normal gyms can typically offer.
In addition to the rich history found in West Oakland, one of the best parts of living in the neighborhood are the incredible views of downtown San Francisco and the San Francisco Bay. Residents are also privy to excellent transportation choices including BART, the Bay Bridge, and convenient freeway access (880, 980, 580, and 80) which makes commuting a breeze.
