Oakland’s Market Square building is located in historic Old Oakland, a diverse and vibrant neighborhood located northwest of Broadway between the City Center complex and Jack London Square. Residence 315, on the third floor, offers an open living room/kitchen, a dining room, 2 bedrooms, and 2 bathrooms. This dramatic, contemporary home has oversized windows that provide bright natural light into the spacious living room and both bedrooms. The floor is elegant Brazilian walnut and continues throughout most of the home’s living spaces.
The kitchen opens to the living room and features recessed lighting, black granite counters, cherry cabinets, a pantry with built-in shelves, and a wide stainless steel sink. Premium stainless steel appliances include a GE side-by-side refrigerator, GE electric range, Whirlpool dishwasher, and a built-in KitchenAid microwave.
A formal dining room is situated to the left of the entrance and is conveniently accessible from the kitchen. The room has a large glass-block window that allows natural light from the courtyard to enter the room, and the space can also be used as a home office, library, or den.
The spacious master suite is sunny and bright, overlooking Clay Street and a sophisticated and colorful painted mural across the street. The suite features a walk-in closet, and the bathroom has an ebony-toned wood vanity with a granite top and a shower over a tub with a warm ceramic tile surround.
The second sunny bedroom is nearly comparable in size to the master bedroom and has a generous closet with mirrored doors. The second bathroom is conveniently located across the hall and offers the same finishes as the master bathroom. A stacking washer and dryer are in this room, hidden from sight by closet doors yet still readily accessible.
Located at 585 Ninth Street, Market Square was built in 2005 and has a classically contemporary exterior design. Inside, the building has all of the premium amenities necessary to enjoy urban living, including a well-equipped fitness center; a sauna and steam room; and a conference room and business center. An expansive tiled rooftop deck has a top-of- the-line gas grill, generous seating, and striking views of San Francisco and the East Bay hills. A lushly landscaped third-floor interior courtyard provides a tranquil oasis that includes blooming jasmine and a stand of giant timber bamboo in raised beds filled with black river rocks. The courtyard is spacious enough for family gatherings, yet intimate enough to simply enjoy the luxury of a tranquil garden in the city.
Old Oakland was Oakland’s business and political center in the 1860s, and many beautiful period buildings still exist on Victorian Row, only one block away at Ninth and Washington Streets. Today, this fast-paced neighborhood offers wonderful restaurants and coffee shops, the Old Oakland Farmer’s Market, and easy access to 12th Street BART.
This sophisticated property offers the best of urban living with fantastic amenities at your doorstep, both inside and outside of your special home. With close proximity to all that Oakland has to offer and an easy commute to San Francisco, this home is an ideal city residence.
