'The Church' [design] is an on-trend interpretation of bohemian meets industrial style that I think will resonate with Oakland buyers

Situated at 751 47th Street, along Oakland’s Temescal-Longfellow border near Children’s Hospital, the previously abandoned property caught the eye of Montague and Clark over three years ago. Despite being left in disarray, the couple saw its potential to become a family home better appointed for its small residential street. The project and couple even caught the eye of HGTV producers, with the network filming a “teaser reel” for a possible new show, “Radical Renovations,” featuring Jen and Steve’s work.

After years of working with the City on plans and approvals, the highly-anticipated property is nearly complete and ready for sale. “My design for the church is an on-trend interpretation of bohemian meets industrial style that I think will resonate with Oakland buyers” says Montague, whose talents include designing, staging, and listing properties for sale. Montague expects the property to be in high-demand due to her husband’s trademark craftsmanship combined with its easy access to Oakland’s popular Temescal and Rockridge neighborhoods. “The Church” will offer buyers a truly one-of-a-kind living experience.

Property highlights include:

  •     22 ft high “sky” ceiling
  •     13 x 6 ft fantasy kitchen island
  •     Vintage-inspired herringbone masonry & reclaimed lumber-clad entry
  •     Wide-plank oak flooring on upper floor, polished concrete on the lower floor
  •     Dining area seating over 20 guests
  •     Transparent catwalk overlooking great room
  •     Electric car charger equipped garage
