This home has been lovingly transformed by the owners over many years. As one of the founding members of the artist community in Jingletown since 1983, they made the area their permanent home and work space. In 1995 they started the process of converting 2916 Chapman to the amazing property it is today.
The house is a mere shadow of its former self and has become a chic urban oasis. After the home was purchased the original house was lifted to create an open and light filled loft style studio below with 10-foot ceilings. Oversized windows allow for lots of natural light with hardwood floors, and convenient laundry room with storage. The home is currently used as a duplex but there are concealed stairs from upper to lower level which allows for future flexibility.
As you approach the property, go through the wooden gate, under fragrant wisteria, to the main house. Go up the stairs to the upper unit or turn left to enter the lower unit. The upper level is a two bedroom with large front and back decks to take advantage of the outside space. Skylights and vaulted ceilings add to the open and airy feeling. The lower level has a live/work type living space with open floor plan, hardwood floors, in-unit laundry and large sliding glass doors which lead to a verdant patio area in the backyard perfect for entertaining.
At the rear of the property you find a multipurpose structure that was used as an artist studio. The light and bright space has a large soaking tub, skylights for lots of natural light and expansive deck to enjoy indoor/outdoor access.
Off street parking for one car and street parking available.
Located in the heart of Jingletown with convenient access to Alameda amenities, Fruitvale BART and freeway access, this home provides a wide range of possibilities for the new owner and has been meticulously updated and maintained.
