From the moment you open the front door you will feel at home and at peace in this stylish light-filled Contemporary condo. Measuring at 1,472+/- square feet (Per Public Records) this spacious condominium lives more like a home. One of the most desirable features of this condominium is its location within the building -it is uniquely situated on the top full floor of the building with no neighboring units next to or above it.
Even though you are conveniently only a couple blocks away from College Avenue and all the amenities of Rockridge, you may prefer to stay at home and enjoy the stunning panoramic Bay and City views from the expansive deck off the Living Room or private roof-top patio off the Master Suite. In addition to the two spacious bedrooms there is an additional “plus room” which can be used as a den, office or guest room.
The condo offers generous storage options both within the unit as well as an exterior storage closet off the second bedroom exclusively for this unit. There is also one secured garage parking space deeded to this unit with interior garage access to the building elevator to take you directly to the unit's floor. The main public access to the building is also level in from the street.
The updated eat-in kitchen with generous pantry is conveniently near the formal dining area. The formal dining area flows seamlessly to the impressive formal Living room which boasts vaulted ceilings and double glass sliders to the deck, flooding the unit with light and maximizing the panoramic views.
The condo has been tastefully updated and meticulously maintained by the same family for decades - this is a rare opportunity to enjoy this special home.
Nestled above the hustle and bustle of Rockridge and adjacent to Claremont Pines, you will find the popular Upper Rockridge neighborhood. Upper Rockridge is largely desireable because of its Top Rated K-8 Public School and close proximity to top rated private schools. Many of the homes in Upper Rockridge were originally built between the 1940s through 1960s on larger parcels. The landscape of the neighborhood evolved after the 1991 Oakland Hills fire with many of the homes re-built expanding in size and adding a broader variety of architectural styles. It has a small commercial area that includes the perfect place for a latte or meal at Terrace Cafe; some of the most beautiful plants and flowers for your garden or as gifts at Broadway Terrace Nursery; re-fueling or servicing your car is easy at the corner station and the most complete, quintessential neighborhood store, Village Market has all you can think of and more! There are numerous AC Transit bus stops that service the neighborhood and you are near the Rockridge Bay Area Rapid Transit (BART) station offers an easy commute into San Francisco. Highways 13, 24 and 580 are also in close proximity making Upper Rockridge an ideal neighborhood for commuters. Nearby you will find several Regional Parks and walking trails.
Residents enjoy easy access to the University of California, Berkeley Campus. The 100-year-old, four-acre campus of California College of the Arts is nearby. Food-and-drink purveyors in Rockridge provide the best from around the world and local farms. Rockridge Market Hall, which takes its cue from the French Marché, offers numerous individual food and flower shops open to the sidewalk. Just a couple blocks from your door you will find dozens of restaurants, cafes, and boutiques line bustling College Avenue, Rockridge's main drag.
