Welcome to unit #110 in the lovely Fairmount Villas! This is a west-facing sunny unit in a well-maintained and tranquil building. The space has an easy breezy modern feel with a spacious layout that is perfect for working from home. Hardwood floors, open kitchen with granite countertops and stainless steel appliances and a fantastic private terrace that overlooks the gated courtyard with outdoor lounge and heated saline pool. This neighborhood gives you convenient access to Whole Foods, Sprouts, Lake Merritt and surrounding shopping of Grand Lake and Downtown. Within a mile radius of all major transportation including 19th Street BART, Casual Carpool, and 550/80 Fwy.
Dazzling lake views, distinct architecture, and excellent public transportation make Lake Merritt and Adams Point two of Oakland’s most sought-after residential neighborhoods.
In the middle of this urban area is Lake Merritt, a large tidal lagoon and the first federally established wildlife refuge in the country. Joggers and walkers charge along the shoreline path of this 155-acre oasis while rowboats, paddle boats and authentic Venetian gondolas glide across the water. At nightfall, the spectacular “Necklace of Lights” illuminates the 3.4-mile perimeter of the lake.
The commercial centers of the district are Grand and Lakeshore avenues, both laid-back with plenty of shopping and dining options.
Amble along the shore of the lake or head to Splash Pad Park, where people from all over the Bay Area gather on Saturdays for one of the best farmers’ markets around. The path around the lake is a little over three miles long, and along the way there is plenty to see, such as the Rotary Nature Center, Children’s Fairyland, the Sailboat House and much more. When you feel like soaking up a bit of tranquility, the picturesque Morcom Rose Garden on Jean Street is a hidden treasure.
A visit to the Grand Lake Theatre is not to be missed. The movie palace is an area landmark whose architecture lives up to its name. Catch a show on a Friday or Saturday evening and an organist playing a Mighty Wurlitzer majestically rises from the floor to give a mini concert before the movie begins.
