About 1945 5th Avenue

Welcome Home

Nestled by the Old Oak Tree

Welcome home to this newly renovated 2 bedroom, 2 bathroom condo located in a gorgeous 1920’s building in Ivy Hill.  Just about everything is new, from the kitchen + bathrooms to the windows + walls, including the furnace, water heater, doors, and electrical.  That’s right, all new!  What hasn’t changed is the incredible view through the windows.  The kitchen, living area + primary suite look out into the lush, forested back garden, and even offers a peek of the downtown Oakland skyline.  The backyard features a communal deck where you can sit under the grand oak trees, terraced garden, and meandering pathways that lead to the private, off-street parking area.  With a total of 5 units, this charming building hosts a friendly community who take pride in their ownership and look out for each other.
