Glamorous Lakefront Flat
What a wonderful time for a change of scenery to the shore of Oakland’s jewel, Lake Merritt. This glamorous and meticulously updated 3BD/2BA flat runs the entire length of the building and offers straight-on sweeping views of the lake, the surrounding hillside and the downtown Oakland skyline. Whether indoors from behind floor-to-ceiling double-paned windows or outdoors on the wrap around terrace, you feel like you are part of the daily pulse of the community and just blocks to BART, a sunset cocktail on the terrace of Lake Chalet, shopping, dining, city center and even the Oakland Museum. Mid-century in simplicity and high style, this residence enjoys clean lines, an open floorplan, wide-plank light wood floors and abundant natural light. A co-op building comprised of three floors with two spacious units per floor, a shared rear yard and roof deck with a barbeque, 1410 Lakeshore offers all of the urban conveniences without the challenges of high density living.
The elevator opens right to your front door from a shared foyer with your only neighbor. From the entry, you are drawn to the open living and dining room that showcases the breathtaking lake front view where you can enjoy watching the birds in the morning or the twinkle lights at dusk. The mere scale of the space offers numerous possibilities for living, dining, entertaining and work.
Adjacent is the chef’s kitchen, renovated in 2018, featuring quartz countertops, stainless appliances including a counter-depth French door refrigerator, four-burner gas range with griddle, Bosch dishwasher and deep sink. The center island with pendant lighting allows additional space for meal prep and storage.
To the rear of the residence are three bedrooms and two updated baths including a privately situated primary suite with direct access to the rear patio. The enlarged en suite bath was recently remodeled by the current owners and has a walk-in shower and double vanity. Along the bedroom wing hallway are several closets for storage, an in-unit laundry equipped with a stacked LG washer and gas dryer and the hall bath which was also updated by the owners.
Should you need your car, the elevator can whisk you directly to the secured garage where you enjoy the largest parking spot and a storage locker. Trader Joe’s, the Saturday Farmer’s Market, Peet’s coffee and scrumptious Arizmendi baked goods are just over a mile away. A walkscore of 87! (www.walkscore.com).
