Description

Welcome to the Simson Ranch farmhouse. Reportedly built by Robert Simson circa 1870 on a large tract of land that now includes Mills College, this historic structure has stood proudly on Hillmont Drive ever since. The home's magnificent scale and vintage details beckon you in from the broad front porch. Once inside the foyer, your eye is drawn up to the 11+ ft ceilings of the adorned with period moldings. Tall double-hung windows capture excellent light from top to bottom and add to the charm. Spacious and thoughtfully designed, the floor plan offers ample room to spread out or host gatherings, large or small. The true heart of this home is found in the huge country kitchen. Many generations have communed, cooked, and created lasting memories in this space. Doors off the kitchen and adjacent laundry room access the large wrap-around deck and make the flow of life a breeze. In addition to the living room and dining room, this floor offers a relaxing family room and what could be a main first floor bedroom or office. Up a graceful curved staircase are four airy bedrooms, a nice nook for an office or nursery, and an updated full bathroom. Outside, the large yard backs up to Chimes Creek for a taste of the country. Don't miss out on the opportunity to own a piece of Oakland history!
