Grand Lake Homes for Sale

Two landmarks compose the core of this vibrant Oakland neighborhood.  The first, and most obvious, is Lake Merritt, which is immediately adjacent to the intersection of the two main streets that compose the area-Lakeshore and Grand.  This iconic landmark offers a scenic view from all the homes and apartment buildings that surround it. 

There is a 3.1 mile footpath around the lake which furnishes glimpses of joggers, strollers, rowers and sailboats.  At night, a beautiful "necklace" of lights follows the entire shoreline.  This necklace was originally installed in 1925, but was dimmed  during World War ll because of fears of Japanese bombers.  Lake Merritt is also that largest man-made saltwater lake in the world, although it was originally an estuary.

 The other famous Oakland landmark that draws both visitors and showgoers is the Grand Lake Theater.  Established in 1926 as a silent movie theater and vaudeville house, this beautifully restored theater still offers concerts on its "mighty Wurlitzer" every Friday and Saturday nights before the show. To keep up with the times, and after some remodeling , it was relauched as a multiplex with 5 different screens with first run movies.

This area is one of the most vital in Oakland. Both Lakeshore and Grand Avenues have a wonderful assortment of eating and shopping establishments which are highlighted by a very active farmers market. The marketplace, adjacent to Highway 580 in Splash Pad Park, is held every Saturday morning.  It sells an amazing variety of fruits, flowers and other goodies, and has live entertainment to enhance the experience. 

The Grand Lake Area of Oakland, is a constantly growing and changing, but still retains the small town flavor of its original prewar stucco and bungalow homes. A walk on its winding, sometimes hilly streets gives views as varied as the architecture and wonderful Art Deco Apartment buildings. [ Back To Top of Grand Lake page]
