Top floor, 1,200 square foot apartment with tons of craftsman charm, original art, creative flourishes, and fabulous modern/industrial design. Lived in (and loved!) by creative maker/artist/designer owner/occupant who is excited to share the space with YOU! Convenient location walkable to vibrant shopping/dining districts and only 2 blocks to Macarthur BART.

The space
While we are away - you get to stay in our FABULOUS artful apartment with a cozy, yet modern-industrial flair.

Located in what is arguably Oakland’s most dynamic, hip, and centrally located neighborhood. We are pet-friendly, have a full gourmet kitchen, dining room, private 2nd story deck w/gas fire pit, personal gym, flat screen smart TV, WiFi, AND we are only 2 blocks to BART. This location is so convenient - you could easily choose a car-free stay; especially since we are less than two blocks from a bike sharing station (sponsored by Ford GoBike). Additionally, there are Lime/Lyft scooters and rental or car share opportunities within blocks.

FEATURES:
- Gym with hotel-quality aerobic machine (recumbent bike), free weights, foam rollers, exercise ball, balance semi-sphere, yoga mats/blocks, and more

- Gourmet kitchen w/fabulous red and stainless designer Fulgor gas range (professional grade), butcher block island w/seating, stainless steel fridge and sink, plus granite counter tops.

- Reclaimed wood modern dining table seats up to 8 comfortably
- Shared redwood deck and garden on lower level (dog friendly)

- Uniquely decorated (99% original art) by design-obsessed, and classically trained, artist/resident
- Full of craftsman charm - building constructed in 1906 (pocket doors, wood doors/trim, high 9-foot ceilings throughout, etc)
- BRAND NEW: we got AC for those increasingly common hot nights!
- ALSO NEW: purified air! The AC/heating system has an in-line air-scrubber to help with the smoky days associated with CA firestorms. We also have a high-end free-standing (portable) air purifier if you want to eliminate more particulates from the rooms you are mostly hanging out in.
- Note: NO dishwasher or microwave onsite
- Fully fenced dog-friendly yard with large dog shelter and outdoor pillow
- Bikeshare station within 2 blocks

I am a lover of design, travel and making a difference as an individual, as a means to create change in our ever evolving world. I am an artist, property manager and designer, entrepreneur, lover of good food and good people. I come from the hills of Pennsylvania followed by 20 years in New York City, before coming west to find a balanced, creative and authentic lifestyle in the San Francisco Bay area. I enjoy refurbishing my 100-plus-year old triplex in Oakland with my partner and two dogs, immersing myself in other cultures and countries, good food, small company performances, film festivals, architecture, art, fashion, sunny days, and social responsibility. Let me know what else I can tell you.
