If you need a little bit of a cool factor, look no further than The Fixie, one of three floorplans offered in the Velo Series at Oakmont — part of a group of 18 newly constructed and planned residences in the Piedmont Ave neighborhood.
The edge is in the details. Built in the First Bay architectural tradition, this two-story, 2,040 square-foot new construction home is loaded with character and good vibes. Naturally sourced building materials and authentic details are in line with the historic homes of Piedmont, Oakland, and Berkeley, while a mixture of modern industrial elements keep the interiors feeling fresh. Don’t miss the feature wall made of reclaimed wood in the living room, and other touches like the real oak hardwood flooring, custom stair balustrades, custom tile detailing, and simplistic wood moldings and trim. Since the home is new construction, it has also been engineered to current energy and seismic standards, with optional air conditioning and prewiring for optional solar panels and electric car chargers. The developers — all local — have thought of everything!
The Fixie’s open floor plan was designed for casual living and entertaining. Vaulted ceilings create brightness and a sense of volume, while a living room and open kitchen / dining room concept with flow to the yard makes it easy to host friends. Enjoy trying out new recipes in your new kitchen with a Bertazzoni commercial grade range, stainless steel appliances, and large center island, then take the party outside to your lush private patio space. Upstairs, there are three large bedrooms, two baths, ample storage space, an office alcove and a laundry room.
Finally, let’s talk about the location. The Fixie is located just steps from Piedmont Avenue! A Walk Score of 85 and a Bike Score of 62 (serious cyclists won’t mind the small incline) puts the homeowner within minutes of restaurants, cafes, coffee shops and shopping on Piedmont Avenue. It’s also a block away from the open space at famed Mountain View Cemetery Park as seen in the movie “Blindspotting.” Take a Saturday morning jog, walk the dog, enjoy a picnic or even practice yoga amid the park’s rolling hills while enjoying some of the best views of the Bay. Commuters will appreciate the close proximity to Rockridge BART, just a 17-minute walk away. A nearby Transbay Service Bus stop is also close by. Kaiser, one of Oakland’s major employers, is only about a mile away.
The Fixie makes the decision easy. Move right in and start living your life.
