348 Lewis Street #3, Oakland
Grand Timber Loft with Separate Studio
2+ Bedrooms / 2 Bathrooms / 2.206sf
Now Available for Lease for $4,495/month!
Designed by loft pioneer Tom Dolan, 348 Lewis St is a 4-unit association that exemplifies a true live/work community. On offer is a rare and amazing opportunity to own both (Unit #3) on the upper two floors, a quintessential live/work loft with dramatic architectural lines, and its attached ground floor studio (Unit #3A) with its own addressed entrance. Jointly deeded, an internal connection between the units provides a myriad of opportunities to live as a contiguous 3-level loft, or to be used separately.
The main loft (over 1,500sf) occupies the upper two floors, and features cathedral ceilings, exposed beams & trusses, a private deck, large picture windows, clerestory windows & skylights. The loft is located in the rear away from the street and overlooks the communal garden area shared with the adjacent 4-unit loft building on Henry St, with mature lemon and jacaranda trees, and an abundant rosemary bush. There is a modern kitchen featuring Samsung & Bosch appliances and butcher block countertops, an open great room with double height ceilings & a cozy gas fireplace, two spacious sleeping areas with ample storage including built-in steel display cabinetry, an updated bathroom with subway tile & radiant floor heating, and a laundry.
The lower studio (over 500sf), has concrete slab floors, kitchenette with gas range & refrigerator, bathroom with stall shower and separate water closet, wall of windows facing the sanctuary-like courtyard garden, with French door access to it. This is the perfect space to create art without worry, share with your associates to run a small business, create an elaborate home office or gym, or simply to enjoy as another living space or guest quarters.
The communal garden features picnic & sitting areas surrounded by mature lemon & jacaranda trees and an amazing rosemary bush brought from a neighbor's family ancestral garden in Italy (having fresh rosemary is such a gift!). It is a quiet enclave to relax with a good book or friends. The low HOA dues include a dedicated parking space.
With several celebrated artists as neighbors and close to Jack London Square and Uptown, South Prescott is a quiet West Oakland neighborhood with its own dog park. West Oakland BART is just two blocks away with one stop, 7-minute service to San Francisco’s Embarcadero station. Walk or bike to Pacific Pipe climbing gym, Horn Barbeque, Kowbird, Soba Ichi, Ghost Town Brewery, The Crucible, Middle Harbor Park, and the many hidden creative spaces that culturally rich West Oakland has to offer.
