For sale: Bay Area log cabin hits the market for $575,000

(NEXSTAR) – The average home in Oakland, California costs about $866,000, according to Zillow, which is all the more reason that 7135 Pinehaven Rd. is getting attention.

The 25,000-sq.-ft. property costs only $575,000.

The property features a log cabin built in the 1890s that overlooks a sloping, tree-lined lot.

But there’s a catch: The cabin is currently uninhabitable. With some TLC, it’s possible it could be brought back to its 1890s grandeur, but in all likelihood, it’s a teardown.

“It’s a cool property, but not in great shape,” said listing agent Nick Flageollet. “The terrain is sliding out from under the foundation.”

But, Flageollet acknowledged, “It’s very unique. I don’t know if I’ve seen anything like this or even this old in this area.”

For someone with a knack for renovation, the property is promising. It sits in the Forestland neighborhood of Oakland, near bustling Rockridge, and is close to nature and hiking trails.
