A Sweet Storybook Tudor Cottage in Oakland

by hookedonhouses on January 8, 2012

When I came across this sweet little Storybook Tudor Cottage in the real estate listings, I gasped so loudly that Lily called, “What’s wrong, Mom?” from the next room.  It was love at first sight. I immediately pinned it to my Pinterest page.

This 6-room cottage was built in 1930 in Oakland, California. Luckily for us, it’s on the market for $699,000, so we can take a look inside.


Here’s the agent’s description of the house:

Follow the winding brick path to the arched front door of this story book cottage. Magical curb appeal with wood shake roof and English country garden.

The entry room opens to an enchanting living room with high beam ceilings and wood-burning fireplace. Hardwood floors continue into the dining room and new high-end kitchen.

Enjoy outdoor entertaining on the wood deck or stone patio. Don’t miss the secret kid’s clubhouse above the garage!

Ooh, a secret clubhouse? Wish they’d gotten photos of that!

Looks like the house has been staged to sell–everything is very neutral. I would love to see some color and vintage pieces in here to charm the place up a bit.

It seems to be in great shape, though, and a perfect blank slate for whatever you wanted to do. How would you decorate it?

I like the white kitchen–but again, I’m itching to get some color in there, too.

The listing says there’s only 3 square feet in the house. I know the cottage is small, but that’s ridiculous. Ha. Must be a typo because property records show it’s more like 1,500.

A sunny study:

I could live very happily in a small cottage like this (maybe after my kids are grown and gone!). Could you? For more photos and info, check the listing with Anthony Riggins of Sotheby’s.
