These days, finding a home to buy in Lower Rockridge is extremely challenging, given that the coveted neighborhood around College Ave spans only a certain number of blocks, and once you are there, you never want to leave. Finding a home in the neighborhood with “elbow room” is rarer still, and most home buyers settle for compressing themselves, their kids and belongings into the smaller spaces of early 1900 architecture. Add to this the rarity of homes with sizable yards, with room to run around and play in the sunshine, and you are searching for a unicorn — or for 6427 Colby Street.
OPEN THURSDAY, JULY 7, 11:00-1:30, AND SUNDAY, JULY 10, 2:00-4:00
This bright and spacious home on a quiet, tree-lined block is just moments from the highly sought-after amenities of Lower Rockridge, including prime shopping, BART, schools, and neighborhood pocket parks. Bonus spaces include an extra-large detached garage, basement, home office, pantry, and “garden room” opening to the rear yard. The unusually large lot provides a private back-yard wonderland, with plenty of space to run and play — or to create your own urban farm.
