3500 Calandria, Oakland

Our featured home today is a substantial Oakland Spanish colonial revival. It was the largest of the homes built in the new Oak Knoll development when it was opened in the late 20s and it remains an impressive architectural statement today. Its scale and location gave it a place of prominence in a development that was known for its Spanish-derived architecture. Today, Oak Knoll’s unity as a development has been diminished somewhat by an intervening highway and the loss of its once integrated country club, but its impressive period revival homes remain a testament to the original vision.

    We bought this home back in 2011, when it was abandoned. We lovingly restored this beauty to as much as we were able to until we sold it Fall of 2015. We enjoyed the sunsets from the sunroom, views of the elephants at the zoo, the original windows, floors and grand feeling when entertaining in the tall living room. This home was good to us. We miss it, the neighbors and Oakland charm. We wish the best to all the families who get to be in this home.
