This historic landmark building was built in 1927 and originally known as Mendelson's Oakland Hotel. In the 1970's it was converted into two separate residences and the north half offers over 2200 square feet of sun soaked living space with four spacious bedrooms (two queen beds, one full bed and the fourth bedroom has two sets of twin bunk beds) with two completely remodeled full baths. The Oakland North has been impeccably maintained and boasts all of the original architectural details of a bygone era including ten foot high ceilings, arched double hung windows with true divided lights, oak hardwood flooring on the entire first floor, stain grade mill work trim throughout with operable transom vents above the second floor bedroom doors. The feeling of the home is truly unique and feels as if you are in a historic turn of the century beach house. The finishes, fixtures and furnishings all add to the overall casual relaxed feeling and remind you that you are 'away from it all'!!!
