619 El Dorado is a stunning example of Victorian-era Shingle Style, cherished for its grand informality and often considered “the architecture of the American summer.” This style reflects the changing times with innovations from the first wave of American modernism with period details from the Queen Anne Revival movement.

Unlike traditional Victorians, hallways and stairwells here are wide and breezy and rooms are spacious, open & welcoming. Irreplaceable details exemplify the handcrafted artisanship of the time including picture ledge wainscoting, coved ceilings, mahogany inlaid floors, box beamed ceilings, architectural columns, solid oak pocket doors, stained glass windows, bronze and cast iron fixtures like the original radiators, and a lighted Newel post.

The main level features the living room, dining room, marvelously updated kitchen with Wolf range, parlor, study, laundry room and half bathroom. The upper level features three unusually large bedrooms (all air conditioned) and a full bathroom. With its own separate entrance, the bottom level of the home features a studio with bathroom and kitchenette – perfect for an office, fitness room or an in-law unit (previously rented for $1,725/month).

Likely built as a summer home, access to the English-style terraced garden is seamless from the front or rear of the home. The established and lovingly maintained landscaping includes box hedges, mature fruit trees and a fish pond along with a newly updated garage roof deck and a rear brick patio – both well suited for adults and children!

Located in the Piedmont Avenue neighborhood, the lively namesake is .4 miles away with dozens of eateries, cafes, fitness centers, a movie theater and a historic ice cream parlor; Grand Lake is also less than a mile away. If you must leave for San Francisco, it is only 10 miles by transport.
