Gorgeous top floor unit in well-kept triplex, with vintage details, lovely natural light, and refinished hardwood floors throughout. This gem is tucked into a quiet street just off Piedmont Avenue, and just a short walk to the Lakeshore/Grand Lake area. Everything you need is just steps away!
From the front porch, a stairwell leads up into a large and sunny living room, which opens onto a private front deck shaded by jacaranda trees (soon to be full with purple blossoms.) Down the hallway is the first of two huge bedrooms, roomy and bright with the closet located just outside the door in the hallway. Across the hall is the bathroom with a brand new white tile floor, new pedestal sink, and shower over tub.
The spacious, vintage kitchen includes a dishwasher, double sink, brand new stainless steel refrigerator, classic Wedgewood oven, and tons of cabinet and counter space. The kitchen opens onto a sunny, private back deck with Adirondack wooden chairs and bench. This space has a great indoor/outdoor “California Living” feel and is perfect for dining, lounging, and entertaining guests. The rear bedroom has a good-sized closet, tons of natural light, and also opens to the back deck.
From the back deck walk down stairs to a large shared, fully enclosed backyard with many raised garden beds perfect for a vegetable or flower garden. This is shared with other 2 tenants in the triplex.
The location cannot be beat with a one block walk to Piedmont Ave and the lovely shops, restaurants, and coffee shops, etc. Amazing walk score. Just minutes away from notable Oakland restaurants like Dona, Itaba, Geta, Homestead, Commis, Dopo, and Mama’s Royal Cafe. Coffee shops including Blue Bottle Coffee, Peets, and Snow White Coffee. Nearby health and well-being hot spots include Piedmont Springs Spa (ooo) and Nest Yoga Studio.

Plus bookstores, thrift stores, banks, ice cream, hair salons (Edo!) – really, anything and everything you might need.
