Welcome To 4085 Whittle !
Enter this lovely setting - from the long garden path to your own peaceful refuge - minutes from every convenience you want. This desirable three-bedroom, one-and-a-half-bath home was built in 1920. Current owners have lived in the home for 34 years and have made many updates.
This popular Oakmore neighborhood is much-loved for its rich lush tree-lined streets and the Dimond Canyon Trail along Sausal Creek.
You will love the floorplan which provides level-living space with easy indoor/outdoor access from the front garden area to the back patio. In back, the detached workshop - what potential! - and a delightful bridge over the gently flowing Sausal Creek. On the other side? A sweet yoga/art studio.
Entering the home, level-in from the front patio, you notice beautiful hardwood floors in the living and dining room. The front of the home includes a bonus room, great as a den or home office. The living room features a fireplace with raised hearth and front windows overlooking the garden. The dining area opens to an updated kitchen via interior French doors. The kitchen features abundant storage, new quartz countertops, a greenhouse window, and new stainless-steel appliances.
The home has a desirable floorplan with three bedrooms with large closets off the main hallway, a convenient half bath, and a full bath with a separate tub and stall shower. There is also a large plus room at the end of the hallway for laundry and storage with access to the sunny backyard. The owner had a spacious drafting table here for crafts and projects.

The Oakmore district is a great choice for everyone looking for a relaxed, quiet area where neighbors walk, children play outside and diversity is celebrated. Although close to every convenience it is full of lush, tree-lined streets, wooded trails and the lovely Sausal Creek which meanders and divides as it flows to the Oakland Estuary of the San Francisco Bay.
In Oakmore, you will find Dimond Canyon Park, with excellent trails for hiking, a playground, basketball courts, picnic areas and a public pool. There are neighborhood block parties, neighborhood book sharing boxes, secret stairways connecting hilly streets and the best weather in the Bay Area.
The very close proximity to the Dimond district, Montclair Village and the Glenview district provides ample opportunity to dine, shop, bank and every other convenience. Nearby is the Redwood Regional Park, Chabot Science Center, Woodminster Amphitheatre and easy access to both Highways 580 and 13 make this a very popular location.
The intersection of MacArthur Boulevard and Fruitvale Avenue is the heart of Oakland's Dimond neighborhood. The very walkable neighborhood boasts several major banks, two major grocery stores, a pharmacy, and various mom-and-pop businesses. Families appreciate a branch of the Oakland Public Library, as well as Dimond Park and Dimond Recreation Center on Fruitvale Avenue. The Dimond Improvement Association (DIA) is committed to making the tight-knit neighborhood “a vital, safe and beautiful place” for its residents and plans community events -- including the annual Oaktober festival. Interstate 580 forms the neighborhood's southern border, a convenient perk for commuters. Those who prefer public transportation can use AC Transit's NL bus line, which runs down MacArthur Boulevard and offers transbay service to downtown San Francisco on both weekdays and weekends.
