In Apartment 401, you can live atop ‘The Town’ and lookout all the way to ‘The Hills.’ Beside the views, this 2 bedroom, 2 bathroom 1,215 Sq Ft home features expansive living, bedroom, and storage spaces as well as 2 sprawling terraces. Best of all, NO SHARED WALLS! Throughout, you’ll find oversized windows, modern details, updated appliances, and a flowing floor plan. You’ll also get an extra large parking space, which can accommodate up to 2 cars, in the building’s garage.
Coming off the elevator on the fourth floor of the building, you have the hallway all to yourself; apartment 401 is the only unit accessible. The door is situated at the end of a covered veranda, and opens onto an enclosed mudroom flanked by windows. Inside the apartment proper, there is a large mirrored coat closet––the first of many storage spaces.
Straight ahead of the entryway is the living room. With large windows, a set of sliding glass doors leading to the first terrace, and a high sloped ceiling––the room is airy and flooded with natural light throughout the day. There is also a wood burning fireplace, perfect for those brisk Bay Area nights.
On the other side of this freestanding hearth wall is the kitchen and open dining room. The kitchen boasts stainless steel GE appliances, granite countertops, and custom wood cabinetry. From here, we flow right into the dining room, which is cornered by a window and glass door that offers stunning Downton views and additional access to the apartment’s first (of 2) terraces.
Together, the terraces make up nearly 900 Sq Ft of additional living space. The L-shaped terrace off of the living room features ample room for dining al fresco, barbecuing, lounging in the sun, and planting herbs and flowers. It feels far from the hustle and bustle of Oakland; and with birds chirping in the nearby treetops, plenty of sunlight, and truly stunning views up and down the East Bay––it’s the perfect place for relaxing or entertaining.
The apartment’s second terrace is accessible only from the master suite. This gracious, well-lit bedroom boasts a truly impressive amount of storage space––including a walk-in closet and two additional oversized mirrored closets––as well as an ensuite bathroom equipped with a granite vanity, tub-shower, and wood medicine cabinet. Like the first, the bedroom terrace is also quite sizable and sunlit.
The apartment’s second bedroom is an extremely versatile space. With a nearly floor-to-ceiling window and mirrored closet––it could easily serve as a bedroom, home office, study, media room, or fitness room. This room has easy access to the home’s second full bathroom, which also features a tub-shower and granite vanity.
For your convenience, the building’s common room can be rented for just $50/day. And so that you can rest easy––the development’s homeowners’ association is extremely well-funded (170%); with $586k in reserves, it’s prepared for the unexpected.
66 Fairmount Avenue is located on the northern border of Downtown Oakland’s Adams Point neighborhood. Just blocks from Whole Foods, Sprouts, award-winning restaurants, bars, theaters, cafés, museums, galleries, schools, and Lake Merritt––you’ll live at the intersection of convenience and leisure. From here, there is also easy access to the East Bay’s extensive bus system, BART, and Highways 580, 880, and 980.
