This lovely 1 bedroom, 1 bathroom urban home has been recently updated with beautiful finishes and thoughtful touches. Located in Oakland’s vibrant Grand Lake neighborhood, the condominium complex was built in 1974 and has premium amenities that include a clubhouse, a fitness center, a sauna, an outdoor swimming pool, laundry facilities, on-site storage, and indoor parking. One of only 64 residences in the building, apartment 115 offers an open living space with a dining nook, U-shaped kitchen, one bedroom, one bathroom, and a sunny balcony.
The home’s front door opens to a formal entry hall that leads to the kitchen and living room on the left and the home’s bathroom and bedroom on the right. The hallways and living room have beautiful cherry hardwood floors, and the open living room and kitchen includes space for a dining table or family room area. The living room has sliding doors opening to a balcony that overlooks the pool and can easily accommodate a bistro table and chairs.
The kitchen features black granite counters; freshly painted cabinets with new pulls; and new stainless steel appliances. A wide stainless steel sink makes cleaning up a breeze, and the new resilient black and while vinyl tiles are set in an attractive checkerboard pattern and give the kitchen a thoroughly updated look.
The spacious bedroom has new rosewood laminate floors and a linen closet that separates two closets large enough to accommodate more than one wardrobe. An oversized double-hung window with custom plantation shutters allows plenty of natural light.
The home’s bathroom features a new showerhead over the tub and a spacious vanity with a black granitetop and a recessed porcelain sink. The floor is the same durable, attractive vinyl checkerboard that is in the kitchen.
500 Vernon Street is situated on a lush tree-lined street that features a pleasing mixture of apartment buildings and early 20th century homes and provides easy access to many commuter options including the AC Transit transbay bus, BART, and highways 24, 580, and 980. Oakland’s superb restaurants, nightclubs, and art scene are just minutes away, and easy local shopping includes Whole Foods, Trader Joe’s, Sprouts, and Oakland’s Grand Lake Saturday farmers’ market.
