Hot Property: Artistic flair radiates through remodeled condo in Oakland
Call it a stylish bachelor pad, a starter space for a young family or a spot for an empty nester. The broader point remains that 8063 Greenridge Drive in Oakland offers a versatile, attractive space at a price point rarely seen in the Bay Area.
“It’s a modern open floor plan designed with unique architectural elements throughout, but what stands out is the landscaped common area and its serene patio,” said Linnette Edwards of Abio Properties, who is listing the two-bedroom, one-bathroom condo for $389,000. “The common area includes a deck and an outdoor dining area with a waterfall and panoramic view of the San Francisco skyline.”
The refreshed condo is one of several boutique units within a building originally finished in 1964. This unit, 8063, is the only one of the four that remains available. East of Highway 580 and less than four miles from the Oakland Coliseum’s BART station, the residence is in close proximity to a variety of transportation options.
Scenic views surround the condo sited immediately south of Leona Canyon Open Space Preserve and west of Skyline Boulevard.
Warm, colorful finishes permeate the 850-square-foot condo with an open floor plan perched on the second story. A private terrace off the great room overlooks the shared landscape. Inside, a series of tinted windows filter sunlight before rays gleam against the dark hardwood floor and white gallery walls.
The motif of tinted glass repeats in the kitchen, taking the form of a colorful accent to the stainless steel backsplash. Honed granite counters, a cafe stove and a breakfast bar complete the stylish modern kitchen.
Stone finishes and a raised basin sink fashion the contemporary bathroom set beside the bedrooms.
Unit amenities include a one-car garage, a storage space, Cat6 wiring and seismic upgrades.
