OAKLAND, Calif. (KRON) – A one-of-a-kind architectural gem in Oakland just hit the market.

Located at 2311 7th Avenue in Ivy Hill, it’s rumored that “Mother” of Mother’s Cookies lived in the house for 67 years from 1925 to 1992.

It can be yours for $1,395,000.

The home has since been restored with a blend of authentic period details and new features.

“Reimagined as a techie’s dream, the residence has been automated for just about everything,” the listing says.

The smart home is run entirely by a smartphone – lighting, blinds, thermostat, as well as audio.
