This bright, welcoming flat is the main house (and top floor) in a lovingly maintained 1910 triplex, tucked into a residential street just 2 blocks off Piedmont Avenue. It has been customized by the owners into a spacious 1350 sq ft unit with newly refinished floors, updated kitchen and bathrooms, and lovely hillside views from all angles.
The front door opens into a small entryway, which leads to the central, contemporary kitchen and living area. The kitchen has ample cabinetry, stainless steel appliances including dishwasher and microwave, and a large breakfast nook. The kitchen is open to the spacious living room, with brand new Douglas fir floors. The living room has large windows on all three sides, with gorgeous views out to Piedmont Avenue and the hills beyond. There are two dedicated bedrooms, and two bonus spaces – lots of possibilities! The bonus spaces are off the kitchen/living area. One is at the back of the flat and is configured as a small office, with a window and hillside vista. The second bonus space is a cupola room at the front of the flat, with 14 foot ceilings and circular windows. It could be set up as a dining room, yoga studio, creative workspace or den.
Both bedrooms are along a hallway off of the living room. One is at the front of the house, and one is at the back. They are both extra-large with warm hardwood floors and deep closets. The two bathrooms are also along the hallway. One has a standing shower along with the energy efficient stacked washer and dryer. The second bathroom has a shower over tub. There is additional attic storage in the hallway as well.
Along the side of the house, there is a semi-private patio space and a shared garden with incredible mature fruit trees (peach, plum, apple, pear, orange and apricot! Down a brick path and stairs are individual vegetable garden plots, one for each unit in this triplex.
Incredible Oakland location. Two blocks from Piedmont Avenue (The Dona, Pomelo, and Kaiser Oakland side. Handy and yummy!). Easy access to all the other shops and businesses on Piedmont Avenue, plus Lake Merritt, Grand Ave and Farmer’s Markets. Close to AC Transit routes and casual carpool.
