On three acres in Brinoes, you could live an upscale rural life in this home, which comes with separate artist studio, chicken coop, and tiki bar, plus a rooftop deck on the main home- all for $1.195 million.

The home


The main house on the property is a three-bedroom, two-bathroom of 1,609 square feet.

It was built in 1975, but has enjoyed updates since, most noticeably in the gleaming kitchen and new bathrooms.

The layout here is an open one, with living and dining areas flowing into the kitchen, and out to a large deck.

On top of the house, a roof deck awaits for taking in views of the acerage.

The land

Access to this property starts with a long tree-lined driveway, giving onto a courtyard and front area with gardens, fruit trees, and chicken coop.

Bonus outbuildings include an artist’s studio and a two-stall barn.


Further away from the main house are fields ripe for the home farmer’s attentions, as well as a creek. Alongside the creek (because, why not?) is a tiki bar.

The location

Briones is an East Bay community with a commute of 30 minutes to Oakland, and about 50 minutes to San Francisco  (traffic allowing).

Briones Regional Park, which this home is close to, offers 6,255 acres of recreation and tranquility.

Potential

The level nature of much of this land means development opportunities abound. And certainly, anyone who wants to grow anything would have ample resources on such a large lot.

The deal

Ready to trade city life for life in the country? Bidding for 300 Bear Oaks Lane starts at $1.195 million.
