About 1 Lakeside Drive #607
Boasting the largest floor plan of all the one-bedroom units in the Essex, unit 607 greets you with a stunning view of Lake Merritt and the Oakland hills the moment you walk through the door. Beautiful hardwood floors stretch before you, relenting only in the sumptuously carpeted bedroom and the bathroom, which was recently updated with imported Italian tile. The living space’s open floor plan allows the home chef to revel in the surrounding natural beauty while preparing refreshments in the well appointed kitchen, complete with updated stainless steel appliances and granite countertops, while guests comfortably enjoy the flow from the dining to living space, or bask in the views from the balcony. Flexible and ready for your imagination, this luxurious 926 square feet is yours to make your dreams come true.
The bedroom is fit for a queen or king (sized beds) — the only one-bedroom plan boasting this size in the building. With a large walk-in closet complete with a closet system, dressing will be a dream as you gaze out over your lakefront view. Before drifting off into slumber, you may enjoy the silent serenade by the lake’s necklace of lights glistening below with an evening cup of tea or night cap on the balcony.
Lake life at it’s best! Lake Merritt is Oakland’s jewel, complete with a glowing necklace of lights. It’s a popular place to exercise, have a weekend BBQ, lawn bowl, meander through tucked away gardens, or even bird watch at the first wildlife sanctuary in North America. If you’re looking for some good eats, you’re definitely in the right spot. Not a quarter mile away is Lake Chalet, which shares dockspace with the municipal boathouse (in case you want to get out onto the lake). It’s a good place for a bite and a great place for sipping a cocktail on their sunny dock. Stretching toward Oakland’s vibrant Uptown district there is no loss for dining or nightlife. If you prefer an equally vibrant, but not quite as vivacious scene, head over to Lakeshore and Grand Avenues for a plethora of food and drink options like Penrose or Shakewell. With Whole Foods less than a mile away, stocking the updated, well appointed kitchen is a breeze. When you want to get to San Francisco the quick trip is a breeze with the 19th Street BART station a short half mile away. If you feel the need to breathe a little more deeply than the bustling city center allows, the Oakland hills hosts many great trails and picnic spots through the East Bay Regional Park District. Living at the Essex, whatever you want is at your fingertips.
