Serene bottom floor unit in well-kept triplex, with vintage details, lovely natural light, and opens onto the shared back garden. 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!
The private entrance to this unit is through the side gate and down a small flight of stairs. The front door opens into a central entryway with custom built pillars and lit horizontal glass ledge. The adjoining large and light-filled living room/dining room has a recessed ceiling and Spanish tiles throughout. The living room’s entire wall of windows opens directly into the lush, fully enclosed backyard with many raised garden beds perfect for a vegetable or flower garden. There’s a sitting area right outside the back door on the brick patio. Also there’s a barbeque area with a table and chairs perfect for dining, lounging, and entertaining guests.
The kitchen, which is divided from the living room by a beautiful redwood bar, looks through the living room and into the garden, and has glass cabinets, classic Wedgewood oven, dishwasher, and tons of extra cabinet space, all built out of redwood!
As you go down the hallway, the first of three bedrooms is on your right. It’s light and airy with a huge picture window, cute built-ins, and a decent size closet. Across the way is the hallway bathroom with tons of built-in redwood cabinetry and a tile shower over tub. The second bedroom does not have a closet but the current tenant has a free standing closet rod that works well. The rear master bedroom is very spacious and serene with a working fireplace, large window, and walk-in closet. The ensuite bathroom has the vanity separated by a door from the standing shower and toilet.
The location cannot be beat with a one block walk to Piedmont Ave and the lovely shops, restaurants, and coffee shops, etc. 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 and Peet’s. Nearby to Kaiser plus easy access to pharmacies, Piedmont Grocery, and Sprouts. Plus bookstores, thrift stores, banks, ice cream, hair salons (Edo!) – really, anything and everything you might need.
