This serene 2 bedroom apartment offers the space you need! Its spacious updated wood flooring is further enhanced by the flat’s open layout, which offers a view of the lovely breakfast nook area and the balcony. The tiled kitchen floor and beautiful red oak-colored cabinets, along with pleasant grey countertops, are perfect for long cooking sessions. A wide window is situated right by the cozy eat-in kitchen offering serene mornings and evenings. The two sizable bedrooms have ample closets and offer generous natural light. The balcony located by the living room encourages plenty of days under the sun with family and friends, providing an additional area to the already roomy apartment.

The building is ideally located less than 5 minutes to Lake Merritt on foot and is only a few minutes away from Interstate 580/Lakeshore Ave shopping district/Grand Lake Theatre by car. This location offers an abundance of activities: a hike around Lake Merritt before a visit to the Farmer’s Market, or perhaps a commute into the neighboring cities of Berkeley and San Francisco thanks to the nearby public transit options. With close proximity to Lakeshore Avenue and Grand Avenue, Lake Merritt, and plentiful restaurants you won’t have to go far for your next excursion. Easy access to Highway I-580 and I-880 also facilitate the next trip to places both close and far.
