Spacious and well-appointed, 501 Merritt Ave is perched on Ivy Hill with gorgeous Lake Merritt and Oakland City views. From the kitchen, dining area, living room, balcony, and master bedroom; views of Lake Merritt, the hills, the Grand Lake Theatre, Downtown Oakland and a unique view of the 580 all impress as you flow throughout the home. While most condos have limitations, this lives much more like a single family home. There is a shared garage with room for 1-car parking and storage. There is a small foyer with a coat closet and a laundry/utility room in the unit. The bedrooms are a generous size and both have huge closet space, which is so hard to find! The master bathroom and the common bathroom have both been tastefully updated and the kitchen was recently updated as well. Planning to work from home? You can easily find space in the living room, dining area, or you could use the 2nd bedroom for a more substantial office space. With a small HOA and reasonable fees, great views, and Lake Merritt as your backyard; this is East Bay living at its finest.
