Gracious Grand Lake Duplex nestled on the crest of the hill between Grand & Lakeshore Avenues. This 1937 classic evokes a Tuscan villa with light-filled grand scale, formal rooms and old world charm. An inviting level entry into unit 955 opens to the living room with wood-burning fireplace and lovely views of the verdant Oakland Hills. The formal dining room has a sunroom and a hallway with built-in cabinetry to the eat-in kitchen. There are 2 spacious bedrooms separated by the full bathroom. Unit 957 opens to a beautifully curved staircase and a custom stained glass window that symbolizes peace in multiple languages. The floor plan upstairs mirrors the lower unit with the addition of an office with a perfectly placed porthole window that frames the views to the south. There is a 2-car side by side garage, a laundry room and ample storage on the basement level. There are gardens in the front and the rear of the property.  A planter bed with herbs and vegetables, a holly tree and fruit trees border the rear yard and add to the appeal of this impressive property. The vibrant Grand Lake Neighborhood has so much to offer! Walks along Lake Merritt, a movie at the historic Grand Lake Theater, Saturdays at the Farmer’s Market, fine dining & shopping at Trader Joes, to name few. An easy commute to SF with nearby express buses and casual carpool, make this the perfect find for buyers seeking architectural interest in a highly sought-after neighborhood.

Grand Lake/Lake Merritt

Lake Merritt is known as Oakland's "crown jewel." The park area surrounding this large tidal lagoon is a popular place for Oaklanders to exercise, picnic, and hang out, and even spy a turtle or two.  The largest urban saltwater lake in the United States, dozens of spectacular parks and hiking trails, and 19 miles of scenic coastline along San Francisco Bay. It's also home to Children's Fairyland (Disneyland's precursor), the famed Grand Lake Theater (which features a live Wurlitzer organ concert before Friday- and Saturday-night screenings), a huge weekly farmers' market, shopping, and a lot more. 

Oakland is located just 20 minutes from San Francisco in the geographical center of the Bay Area. The city's 400,000+ ethnically diverse residents speak more than 120 languages and contribute greatly to the array of dining, shopping, and culture.
