DESCRIPTION:

Sold June 28, 2012 for $837,000.

5809 Howell Street is a 1909 Rockridge brown shingle Craftsman style bungalow on a large double parcel. The living area is all located on the main floor with an open living/ dining area, three bedrooms, bathroom and kitchen. The rear deck, shaded by a mature avocado tree, overlooks the spacious, fenced-in, side yard perfect for dogs, gardening & entertaining.

Howell is a quiet tree lined street in lower Rockridge located just far enough for ample neighborhood parking, but close enough that BART and College Ave are just three blocks away. Hello Oakland Café, just around the corner, is a great place for coffee and sandwiches. The “walk score” is 80.
