Sneak Preview: Rammed Earth Temescal Bungalow
Rammed Earth Temescal Bungalow
431A 37th Street, Oakland
List Price: $249,000
Built in 1994 by local eco-artist Christina Bertea with design renovations by local sustainable companies Indigo Design Group and organic Bountiful Botanicals, this passive solar urban infill rammed earth bungalow will suit your home needs, sustainable values AND your wallet.
With a well-laid out floor plan, the interior space includes one bedroom plus a sleeping loft, an open kitchen/living room combination, and a bathroom. The outside patio extends the living room, adding an indoor/outdoor feel to the flow. Radiant heat and the foot-thick walls contribute to a low energy bill, and keeps the home cool in the summer and warm in the winter. And the kitchen cabinets are made of hand planed reclaimed wood from the Richmond boat yard.
Part of a 3-unit intimate HOA, the 363 square foot (not including additional loft space and private garden) home is private at the back of the property, yet is part a friendly neighborhood vibe along a tree-lined street. Close to Mosswood Park and the new Kaiser Permanente compound in Temescal, the home is “Very Walkable” (with an 83 out of 100 on walkscore.com) and close to all things East Bay, including Uptown, Piedmont Ave., and Rockridge, and easy commuting to Emeryville and Berkeley, and San Francisco.
Whether you’re looking for a rightsized home around the corner, an urban pied-à-terre, or an opportunity for downsizing, you know you’ll be living large in this wonderfully unique bungalow.
