Enjoy some of the most dramatic Lake Merritt views from this rarely available spacious Lake Royal Co-Op unit. Bathed in light from the walls of glass, nearly every room has a stunning view of the Lake and surrounding skyline.
Boasting an expansive 55' balcony which runs the length of the unit, you’ll have plenty of opportunity to dine al-fresco, watch the birds, the boats and the world go by or tend to your potted plants!
Two spacious bedrooms have generous size closets, the primary has an ensuite bathroom and the second bathroom is conveniently located in the corridor for guest access.
One side of the corridor is dedicated to a wall of closets, you should not be short of storage space.
The unit has had minor updates over the years and provides the ideal opportunity for buyers with vision and the desire to do their own thing! Opening up the kitchen for more open plan living and updating bathrooms will make this a truly spectacular unit, with the added value of having one of the most desirable layouts and views in the building.
The unit has one secure parking space with interior building access & 24-hour doorman. The building has a large communal laundry facility, bicycle parking, guest parking and a roof-top deck with panoramic Lake, City and Oakland Hills views.
Located moments from Lake Merritt with easy access to BART, bus, entertainment, restaurants, the museum, farmers market, downtown Oakland, Whole Foods and the Lakeshore District.
Lake Royal is undoubtedly one of the most well maintained buildings by the Lake. An exceptional nine million dollar seismic retrofit was completed in 2019. Appealing cosmetic upgrades are nearing completion. The on-site property management, active board of directors, involved residents and visible maintenance staff are added value.
Enjoying pride of ownership, a diverse community and a well looked after home at Lake Royal. https://lakeroyal.org/
Downtown Oakland is home to the skyscrapers of giant health care provider Kaiser Permanente and Clorox; high-tech startups like Internet radio station Pandora; and sports franchises the Oakland Athletics. Newly developed condominium projects with modern conveniences, a few old Victorians, and contemporary structures make up the majority of the housing in this mostly urban area.
Oakland’s heritage as a port city can still be found in its communities and cuisine: Le Cheval, a Vietnamese neighborhood institution; Rio California, a Brazilian eatery located in Preservation Park; and Ichiro, a Japanese sushi bar. Downtown Oakland’s entertainment scene includes the massive Paramount Theatre on Broadway and the Fox Theater on Telegraph Avenue. These former movie palaces now feature symphony performances, ballet, rock acts, and showings of classic movies. For the gallery-goers, Oakland First Fridays is a gallery walk that includes artisan works and food vendors.
Some Downtown Oakland residents can walk to work, while those who work in San Francisco have access to two Bay Area Rapid Transit (BART) stations.
