Located in the desirable Claremont Terrace area of Oakland,  at 5400 Broadway Terrace #103,  is this well established, and very remarkable, condominium complex.  Within it is the 2 bedroom, 2 bath,  1050 square foot view unit seen below. 

Ideally located close to College Avenue and Piedmont Avenue shops and restaurants, it is just moments from Highways 13 and 24 that provide routes to Oakland and San Francisco to the west, and Contra Costa County to the east.      

The central core of the home is defined by this delightful living room and dining area that is dramatically enhanced with the light and views entering through the floor to ceiling sliding glass door and windows.  Expansive supplemental LED overhead lighting adds to the effect.

A second perspective highlights the stunning handcrafted Berkeley Mills media cabinet that anchors the room, and is characterized by the beauty of its outstanding woodworking.  The softly colored bamboo floors harmonize perfectly to create a striking combination. 

Just steps away is this outdoor balcony that runs the width of the entire unit, and provide a perfect opportunity for both personal relaxation, and outstanding entertaining.  

The glass of the see through balcony, and the open air space above, create an ideal viewing platform for both guests and residents year round.  

This splendid view of the Bay is as varied as the time of day, and the year's seasons, and is an everchanging vista to enjoy.

A reverse aspect of the porch reveals its size and appeal.

Returning inside, and to the right, is an extremely flexible living space.  It is currently being used as an office, but is equally effective as a second bedroom, arts and crafts room, music room or play room, depending on need.    

Once again, the soft sunlight streams through a literal wall of windows to create a warm and welcoming ambiance for residents.  

Immediately adjacent is this long hallway that leads to the primary bedroom.  Perfectly placed along this left wall is an exceptional selection of storage and closet spaces that offer a lot of room in a cleverly conceived location.  

The primary bedroom above is spacious, and easily accommodates a large bed, chest, and nightstands.  It also has a pleasant seating area to the right of the floor to ceiling door that opens out onto the adjacent balcony.  

An opposite view reveals more of this extraordinary space, and down the hall, as seen below, is the impressive primary bathroom space.

There are two bathrooms in the home.  The primary bathroom, seen here, will be shown for your consideration.  It has been enhanced to include rich travertine tile, a spacious shower over an inviting tub that includes soothing water jets.  

Returning to the central portion of the residence, one discovers this very comfortable and engaging dining and kitchen combination.  

This combination has been carefully conceived in a way to make the most use of the generous and available space.  Lengthy black stone counters offer outstanding preparation workspace all around the kitchen.  

The counter's height creates varied opportunities at every level for wall to wall storage space for china, glassware, silver and favorite cooking and serving pieces.

The kitchen has been updated to feature this outstanding combination of appliances that include a gas range/cooktop, dishwasher, microwave and refrigerator.  

If you would like to learn more about this special home, I encourage you to call me promptly with your questions and interest at (510) 517-6280.  It is being offered for sale for $938.00.
