3935 Reinhardt is a 1951 traditional that is designed for easy living - it’s a home to nourish the soul. This handsome, feel-good abode is set back from the street and has an oversized picture window of verdant views and the hills above. The layout has been enhanced over the years to encompass traditional features such as a lofty living room with a classic fireplace and mantel, as well as an open kitchen/family room with French door access to the extra deep backyard.

Wayne, the current owner, was drawn to the Redwood Heights neighborhood and this home's proximity to the elementary school and great backyard. He also loved that the space allowed for him to add a second master suite downstairs for private living for guests. Great care was taken to improve this property for today's style; the old carpet and vinyl in the family room and kitchen, respectively, was removed and solid oak floors were installed to match the existing floors on the main living level for a more cohesive flow. Thoughtful touches such as American made light fixtures were added, as well as new tempered shower doors (2018) and new kitchen cabinetry pulls (2018). The backyard was graced with over 40 newly selected perennials and drip irrigation was put in. This is a home where one can see adding the extra leaves to your dining room table and having your whole crew of family and friends over for Thanksgiving cheer; it’s simply that welcoming and warm-hearted.

Redwood Heights

Redwood Heights takes its name from a former logging road that winds into the Oakland Hills. Homes range in style and include Tudor, Craftsman, and French Normandy, with some homes built in the 1920s. The Redwood Heights Neighborhood Association is dedicated to preserving a sense of community through events such as block parties and barbecues. 

The Redwood Heights Recreation Center is used by locals of all ages for weekend gatherings and classes including dance, cooking, and karate. Peralta Creek’s 9 acres of creekside have been designated as wildlife corridor. A neighborhood nonprofit Native Environment Watershed Transformation (NEWT) orchestrated the Peralta Creek restoration and leads creek field trips for local school groups. Redwood Regional Park offers nearly 40 miles of hiking and mountain biking trails through 1,380 acres of redwood, evergreen, and chaparral forests and open space.

Insider Tips

  • Shortly after moving in, Wayne walked to the top of the backyard and sat on the little platform with a glass of wine and witnessed a most gorgeous moon rise coming over the ridge.  You get the same view from that large front window, but nothing like the tranquility of the back of the hill.
  • There are two areas in the backyard that herbs were planted and there is an area for compost.
  • There are classes available at the Redwood Heights Rec Center, Redwood Heights Rec Center
  • Garbage day is Thursday
