Cottage of Dreams (Address and price posted when on market 3/30)
Open House April 1 & 2 from 2-4:30PM
In 2009, Jess, co-founder of Two Mammas’ Vegan Kitchen, fell in love with this Allendale cottage as her home of inspiration and retreat from her busy life. It was also the love of baking apple pies right here in this kitchen that brought the Two Mammas' together. Their story as personal chefs and as a Cottage Foods bakery began here in this cottage. The sunny kitchen has been the source of many dessert experiments.
Now, this lovely 2 bedroom, 1 bath, 1908 craftsman cottage can be your “cottage of dreams”. This is a home with many energy efficient upgrades including central heating, new dual pane windows, and new insulated fiberglass doors. The remodeled kitchen comes complete with Energy star appliances. Enjoy the tranquility of relaxing under the stars in an outdoor hot tub or entertain friends on the large patio. Located on a quiet block in Oakland’s up and coming Allendale neighborhood.
Located just minutes from the upcoming Laurel Beer Garden, Therapy Furniture & Boutique, Planet Fitness, Mills College, Farmer Joes and several great cafes and local brunch spots. The easy access to 580 and Fruitvale BART make this cottage a commuter’s dream. Close by are the East Bay Regional Parks with opportunities for hiking, biking, horseback riding and off-leash dog trails.
Two Mammas’ are called to further pursue their dream of creating a space in the Sierra Nevada foothills that combines the healing, spirituality, love, and culinary vegan artistry that began in this cottage. They are leaving behind a gardener’s paradise, surrounded by flowers and vegetables, wild blackberries and Meyer lemons. Trees in this yard include organic avocado, golden delicious apples, black walnut and cherry. All this welcomes you, the cottage’s new owner.
