5851 Morpeth Street is located on a sweet street in Upper Rockridge, just two blocks long. Perched off the street, you are greeted by a pretty white Mediterranean built in 1937, a rare 5 bedroom/3 bath home measuring approximately 2,419 sq ft. A gracious foyer with hardwood floors welcomes you as you enter. Immediately to the left, you are drawn into the spacious and light-filled living room graced by a fireplace and flanked by windows. The large picture window at the front of the room overlooks the neighborhood. Through an arched doorway is the formal dining room with a fun pendant light - imagine entertaining friends and family for both casual and special occasions. The eat-in kitchen features newly added quartz countertops, hardware and dishwasher with abundant cabinets for storage. Fun period details  - with a nod to Art Deco era - includes rounded cabinets and floor to ceiling storage space.

Up a few stairs find two bedrooms, both with hardwood floors and ample closet space. Both of these bedrooms look out onto the rear yard. The hall bathroom with vintage details - including yellow and black tile - is conveniently located and features a tub with separate shower. 
 
The primary suite sits away from the other bedrooms on a mezzanine level with plenty of privacy. The light-filled retreat with hardwood floors, a large window and balcony benefits from peek-a boo views of the bay. Recently refreshed, the primary bath boasts new tile floors, countertop and a new light fixture.
 
Lovingly expanded to meet the needs of a growing family in the 1980's, you will be pleasantly surprised as you continue upstairs to find two more bedrooms and another bathroom. With the flexibility of the space and floor plan, the upstairs bedrooms could also function as a home office, guest room, media room or au-pair suite with it's own separate entrance. Both bedrooms also overlook the yard and have ample closet space, new light fixtures and refinished hardwood floors. One room has a charming balcony where you could imagine reading a favorite book in the sunlight, the other rooms has lovely views of the bay and Oakland cityscape. A bright third bathroom can be found at the end of the hallway with new tile floors and newly added light fixture. 

The large back yard provides flexibility for the needs of many: entertaining under the light laced gazebo, gardening amongst the vegetable beds or playing a favorite game. The brick fireplace is a nod to past memories created. Roses, lavenard, citrus, and succulents are just a few things you will find. Enjoy vistas of the bay and city from the upper tier of the garden.
 
Do not miss the large attached garage, with automatic door or the basement with plenty of storage opportunities. 
 
All this and located in popular Upper Rockridge. Highly sought after elementary schools such as Hillcrest, Aurora and St. Theresa are truly just a few minutes away; many members of the community appreciate walking their children to school!  Holy Names High School is on the corner of Morpeth and Harbord. Neighborhood favorite grocer Village Market is half a mile away. For tennis & golf enthusiasts, Claremont Country Club can also be found in the neighborhood.

5851 Morpeth Street

Upper Rockridge is a neighborhood of older, Mediterranean-style estates, midcentury modern homes, contemporary houses, and new, custom showplaces. Large lawns, terraced gardens, stunning views of the bay and San Francisco skyline, and roads that follow the rolling hills all define this affluent Oakland community. A local grocery, the Village Market, serves the neighborhood, while more extensive shopping and dining options await in nearby Rockridge, where residents can commute to San Francisco via the Bay Area Rapid Transit (BART) station.
