This unit has been lovingly maintained by the owner and has high ceilings, pretty hardwood floors, and excellent space and light.
A wide stairway leads up from the street to the front porch area and communal patio on the garage roof. You step through the original glass -paned front door into a bright, private entryway with stairs that lead up to the flat.
At the top of the entry stairs is a hallway, with two bedrooms on the left, a full bath in the middle, and a large open-concept living room/dining room/kitchen on the right. The third bedroom/office is off the living area. The front bedroom has pretty bay windows that overlook the street, plus a bonus closet room with a window that could be an office, a nursery, a yoga room – or just an enormous dressing room. The middle bedroom is a bit smaller and shadier, with two large windows overlooking the treetops along the side of the house and a good sized closet with sliding doors. The third bedroom (or den/office/music room?) is through the living area in the back of the flat, with large windows overlooking the giant backyard and the Oakland hillside.
In the center of the flat is a sunny great room with a breakfast nook, kitchen, spacious living/dining area, and patio door that leads out to a private rear patio and stairs down to the yard. The cozy breakfast nook has another set of bay windows with treetop views. The adjacent kitchen is well-designed, with a large L-shaped prep area on one side, and a cooking area on the other. The prep area has butcher-block countertops, stainless steel sink and dishwasher, plus plenty of under-counter and overhead cabinet space. The cooking area has a new gas stove with built-in overhead microwave, more cabinet and counter space, and a large stainless steel fridge. A glass patio door leads out to a wide concrete patio with a wall of greenery and room for a grill, with pretty views of the backyard and Oakland hillside.
The roomy hall bathroom has been fully remodeled, and has a shower over tub and a swanky backlit mirror and Ikea vanity with drawers. The flat has vintage touches, like original staircase detailing and moldings, but is otherwise fresh and modern. The shared backyard is rambling and large, with shady trees, planter boxes, a center brick path, and room for you to add your own touches.
Sweet Bella Vista neighborhood is in an awesome location, just a short trip to Lake Merritt, Lakeshore Ave, and Park Boulevard. Enjoy weekend mornings at the Lakeshore Farmers’ Market, close-by grocery shopping at Trader Joe’s, entertainment at the Grand Lake Theater, and great dining at Champa Garden, Shakewell, Arizmendi, and the Grand Tavern.
