This light-filled 1 bedroom, 1 bathroom condo is one of only 9 units in the Center Street Lofts, a newly remodeled live/work condominium building in a former West Oakland warehouse. The building features garage parking and an ideal location with easy access to multiple highways and with parks, art galleries, farmers’ markets, and the West Oakland BART stop all close by.
Unit 3 offers a flowing open floor plan that includes a living room, dining room, and kitchen, as well as a cozy bedroom and updated bathroom. Sealed concrete floors, high ceilings, and two elegant steel light fixtures (one in the living room and the other in the kitchen) give the condo a sophisticated, contemporary vibe while also paying homage to the building’s industrial past.
Large skylights line the home’s slanted ceilings. The two above the main living and dining spaces allow for radiant natural light and airflow without the squint-causing glare of the late afternoon sun. High ceilings also, of course, mean high walls. In the living room, there is ample space for a large television or work of art, and adjacent to the dining room, the wall seems ripe for a gallery of smaller framed pieces.
The dining room flows around a corner into the remodeled kitchen, which features a skylight of its own as well as stainless steel appliances, quartz countertops, and chic white cabinetry. There is plenty of storage space as well as ample room for family or friends to lend a helping hand in the kitchen.
The bedroom is accessible from either a door off of the kitchen or from the bathroom, which has a separate door into the dining room. Like the rest of the apartment, the bedroom balances modern, airy elegance with a homey feeling. There is a large built-in closet and a skylight that catches the light during day but keeps it indirect in the morning.
The newly remodeled bathroom has a modern vanity, sizable shower, and dual entries, with one door from the bedroom and another from the dining room. This allows for easy access from both the sleeping and living spaces so you have the convenience of an en-suite bathroom without guests having to pass through your bedroom. Adjacent to the bathroom is a large closet that can fit and conceal a washer/dryer unit.
With its industrial-chic aesthetic and adaptive reuse mentality, the Center Street Lofts building offers the best in converted-loft living and is an elegant addition to West Oakland’s creative community. Located near to Downtown Oakland, parks, restaurants, galleries, museums and markets as well as BART and highways, Center Street Lofts is an ideal location for spending a day in the neighborhood, hopping over to the City, or getting away for the weekend.
