Location! This spacious duplex is situated on a leafy, residential block only minutes from Emeryville restaurants, shopping, freeways and BART, and just over the border from Oakland and close to Ashby Ave. in Berkeley. Built in 1907, the house offers street level and second floor apartments with completely separate front and back entrances and plenty of off-street parking. The expansive backyard and size of the property may enable new building, or expansion of the current house.*

The spacious first floor apartment is centered around a long center hall that runs from front to back. A sunlit living room is located to the left of the foyer through an arched, open doorway, and has a hardwood floor and dual-pane windows for energy efficiency and urban noise containment.

The first spacious bedroom is down the hall on the left, and has a large, built-in closet, carpeting, a 9-foot ceiling, and bay windows that offer plenty of natural light. An additional well-sized bedroom is situated nextdoor, and also includes carpeting, a 9-foot ceiling and a dual-pane window. The bathroom is across the hall from both bedrooms, and has been updated with a classic vanity with a quartz top, and has a tub/shower combination with an attractive ceramic tile shower surround.

The remodeled, eat-in kitchen includes a professional Bertazzoni stainless steel gas range, a Bertazzoni built-in microwave, and a stainless steel refrigerator and dishwasher. The counters are a dark granite that offsets the white, Shaker-style cabinets and white subway tile backsplash, and the floor is an elegant, dark hardwood. A separate laundry room is at the back of the kitchen, and has cabinets for storage. A backdoor in the kitchen opens to a large redwood deck that is part of the fenced backyard.

The second floor apartment has an L-shaped floor plan, with the bathroom and public spaces at the top of the stairs and the 2 bedrooms at the end of an open hallway. The bathroom has a walk-in shower and newer vanity, and the kitchen has the same quartz counters, stainless steel appliances and hardwood floor as the lower unit. This great room is completely open to a large dining/family/living room that has crown moulding and a door that leads to a porch with stairs to the backyard. This unit has city views through dual-pane windows that keep light in and urban noise out.

With its desirable location and close proximity to dining, shopping and easy commuter options, 1255 Ocean offers the opportunity for an owner occupied investment property. Live in one and rent the other, or use the income from both units to pay down the mortgage! This property is move-in ready!
