If you've ever dreamed of owning a piece of the Bay Area's contribution to the modern residential architecture history, here's your chance!

Patience was key in snapping up this near-perfect condition REO, 8th-floor loft with panoramic views of the Oakland Estuary and Hills, downtown San Francisco, and even across the Bay to the Costal Mountain Range of the Peninsula.  The unit is a spacious 950 square foot, one-bedroom, with dark-stained hardwood flooring, large full bath, in-unit stackable laundry, stainless/Corian kitchen, single-car garage parking, and a garage storage locker.

Imagine waking up to a cool Bay breeze and having breakfast on one of your three large balconies. Or, watching a gorgeous California sunset over the downtown skyline, with Mt. Tamalpais in the distance.

I am excited to have assisted a life-long New York City native in finding a place to call home, solidifying his transition to a new life in the Bay Area.  On a pre-move, property-scouting visit,  I was able to locate and schedule showings of a few lofts and condominium units in Oakland offering a sense of urbanism that could be reminiscent of an East Coast apartment, while combining California-style indoor/outdoor living.


This 16th-floor, Lakeside Regency Plaza condo features a floor-to-ceiling glass wall in every room,
