Oakland's Lake Merritt has always been a outstanding addition to the heart of the city.  Close to downtown offices and businesses,  the Oakland Museum, and the many and varied restaurants and shops of nearby Lakeshore and Grand Avenues, it truly anchors this vital part of the urban scene.  

Aesthetically, as seen here, the entire lake is beautiful, and is surrounded by homes, condominiums, and apartments that offer a variety of living choices for those who want to experience it year round.  

Right along the lake frontage, and directly on Lakeshore Avenue, is this very desirable six unit condominium complex at 1410 Lakeshore Avenue. With off street parking for two cars per unit in the garage space seen here, it also has a large shared back yard, a roof deck, and each unit has its own private view balcony.

A view of the living room and dining area reveals the impressive size of this unit.  It offers 3 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms in an expansive 1944 sf of living space.  

The rooms glow from the light that flows in from the floor to ceiling sliding glass doors that literally become a full far wall for the home.  Crisp white walls, generous supplemental lighting, and softly colored oak floors complete the effect.  

A reverse perspective illustrates the marvelous lakeside view that is available just steps away at the exterior balcony.  

Close by, is this inviting dining room that is perfect for entertaining.  Large enough to accommodate space for a delightful dinner party, it is enhanced by the engaging, and equally useful, display cabinet that can double as a bookcase, china cabinet, or a display case for favorite pieces of art.

A reverse aspect reveals the large picture windows to the right, and the access to the adjacent, and very unique, kitchen.  

It may be said that the heart of any home is the kitchen, but that is especially true in this case.  This kitchen was dramatically upgraded in 2020. 

There are quartz countertops, and backsplashes with Fireclay tile, generous supplemental lighting, overhead lamps, and a well placed central island.  

Additionally, and as seen above, there are stainless steel appliances that include Bosch, and a Fisher and Paykel refrigerator.  To add even more value, these are ENERGY STAR Appliances.  

Worth noting, that to service the many appliances and lighting seen here, and throughout the residence, there is an outstanding asset to be discovered-this is a solar powered building.   

There are three bedrooms in the house.  The first, seen here, has big sun filled windows, and is currently being used as a home office, but could easily fill another use as the need arises-nursery, music room, den, or arts and craft room.  

This primary bedroom is deep, can easily accommodate a large bed, as seen here, and still have room for side tables, chest of drawers, and perhaps a additional soft sided chair.   It has an en suite bathroom just steps away, as seen below.  

This pleasing white and blue tile combination adds a bit of cheer to the bathroom.  A shower/tub combination and large counter and storage space complete the scene.     

The third and final bedroom maintains the home's vision of subtle color tones in the off white and subtle blue walls.  Another view of the refinished and original oak floors reveals their additional charm. 

The second en suite bathroom with its cheerful pink tile is seen here.  

(Note: A complete floorplan is seen at the end of the presentation)

If this very desirable condominium is of interest to you, I encourage you to call me promptly regarding it at (510) 517-6280.  It is being offered for sale for $995,000.
