This pleasant and welcoming Oakland condominium is located at 288 3rd Street, Unit 605, and is just moments from all the favorite activities, restaurants, and entertainment offered at Oakland's Jack London Square, and, just down the estuary, are the growing waterfront attractions at Brooklyn Basin.
A daily SF ferry in the Square transports both workers and tourists to the city, and rapid freeway access to Oakland and San Francisco is nearby.
This home offers 2 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms in a roomy 1211 sf of living space.
A wall of windows captures the many scenes that make this area so special, and a window opens to invite in the sun and scenery.
A softly colored living room is especially flexible in its floorplan so that it can, as seen here, easily accommodates multiple chairs, a wide sofa, and central coffee table, with room remaining to include additional seating and side tables when desired.
Directly opposite the couch is the floor to ceiling glass door that opens to the outside view balcony.
Worth noting, off to the top left, is a subtle and very effective floor to ceiling inset space that has been set aside as a small office space.
An additional perspective illustrates the immediate appeal of the living space with a direct line to the expansive picture windows, and the glass door to the exterior balcony.
An exact reverse viewpoint reveals the presence of one of the home's two bedrooms, and the dining area that is adjacent to the kitchen.
A kitchen counter doubles as a divider between the table and chairs, and the kitchen itself. It is an imaginative use of space, because the counter can serve multiple purposes-either as a serving platform, or a preparation space when creating daily meals.
The other side of the divider contains a comfortably sized kitchen with stainless steel appliances, generous multi-level storage cabinets, and crisp overhead lighting.
Colorful tiling and a roomy refrigerator add yet more appeal to the space.
Close by, the first of the home's two bedrooms is revealed. It's placement illustrates why Jack London Square area homes are so popular. Virtual floor to ceiling windows capture a wide swath of the view that includes varied city buildings, hillsides, and the city.
Just off to the right of this pleasant room is an exceptionally large closet, and the room's en suite bathroom.
This gleaming bathroom includes a wide counter with storage space below, a large overhead mirror that captures the subtle lighting present, a toilet, and a comfortable shower stall.
The second bedroom continues the theme of floor to ceiling views of the area, and comfortably handles a spacious bed in its floorplan. The glass display desk could easily be replaced by a chest of drawers, if needed.
It is not hard to imagine the amazing nighttime views from this room, or any other of the main rooms in the unit.
Just outside of the living room is an inviting sixth floor balcony view of the surrounding city facing west. It can be a great afternoon retreat, and a perfect party site.
One of the most outstanding amenities of living in this building is the availability of this expansive rooftop experience. Not only does it offer sweeping views of the area, it is a perfect place for entertaining larger groups of friends when desired, or, given its size, one can locate a quiet place to enjoy a cup of coffee and a good book
Yet another perspective reveals the very generous cooking and barbecuing space that is available when the time comes to throw a large party or hold a special event.
The entire building is handsome, well presented, and colorful in appeal. Also worth noting--the unit has an indoor laundry and air conditioning.
