Former Raider Langston Walker fields offers for Oakland home

Langston Walker’s Oakland home
Set on a hillside, the two-story home overlooks the Bay Area from a deck and two balconies.

Oakland native Langston Walker, who spent seven seasons with the Raiders as an offensive tackle, is asking $2.25 million for his scenic house in his hometown.

Built in 1996, the hillside property in Merriewood enjoys views of the Bay Area and three of its iconic bridges: Golden Gate, Bay and San Mateo-Hayward.

A private courtyard fronts the property, leading into a two-story home with four bedrooms and 4.5 bathrooms across 4,022 square feet. A great room under vaulted ceilings sits at the heart of the floor plan. Lined with glass doors, it expands to a Bay-facing deck.


Elsewhere, there’s a media room, two dining areas and a center-island kitchen with tray ceilings. Granite lines the foyer floors, and maple hardwood covers the common spaces.

Two bedrooms open to private balconies: one off the master suite and one off a guest bedroom with painted murals on the walls.

Pamela Sweeney of Golden Gate Sotheby’s International Realty holds the listing.

After a college career at UC Berkeley, Walker was drafted in the second round of the 2002 NFL draft by the Raiders. The 39-year-old played in 120 games during his time in the league, including a two-year stint with the Buffalo Bills.


He’ll walk away with a profit if the home gets its price. Records show he paid $1.85 million for it in 2007. | Twitter: @jflem94
