Loading your dream loft...
A sophisticated 2BD/1BA, 1334 sq ft loft with soaring ceilings, hardwood floors, and industrial-style finishes, 1200 65th Street, Suite 305 is located on the top floor of the architecturally unique Oliver Lofts at the epicenter of Emeryville's creative/tech hub. Enhanced by a flood of natural light pouring through floor-to-ceiling jalousie windows, the open common area includes a sleek modern kitchen and open dining area. A custom barn door conceals a spacious guest bedroom/bonus room with a huge storage area, and the expansive mezzanine level includes a spacious loft bedroom, walk-in closet, adjacent bath, and convenient laundry area. Commuter-friendly with easy access to every major freeway, this bright and welcoming home is also near Transbay and local bus lines, as well as the free Emery-Go-Round to BART. In addition, a host of parks, playgrounds, restaurants, cafés, as well as the well-loved Berkeley Bowl West are just a short drive away.
Blending beauty with history, the home is located in the converted section of the Oliver Lofts complex that was once the Oliver Rubber Company building. That section has been renovated to maintain the character of the original building - including the original freight elevator that takes you directly to your floor - while adding bold color, clean modern lines, a whimsical spiral staircase (for when you don’t want to take the elevator), and a lushly landscaped central courtyard and grounds.
The home’s open lower level includes a modern kitchen that provides a perfect work triangle with its expanse of stone countertops and tile backsplash and a 5-burner electric range below a built-in microwave. Abundant cabinets and drawers offer plenty of room for a well-stocked kitchen, and the open design allows for friendly chatting with friends during meal prep.
The mezzanine level is a marvel of design with not an inch of wasted space. The expansive loft bedroom overlooks the common area, while an urban-style catwalk offers space for shelves and a seating area. Also on this level are a very large walk-in closet, modern bath with shower over tub, and laundry area with stacking washer and dryer.
Oliver Loft amenities include a secure bike storage room near the elevator and a secure, below-building garage with a car lift to access two dedicated spaces per unit. For those who enjoy walking, jogging, and biking, a private entry to the building provides a convenient shortcut, making the tree-lined Emeryville Greenway less than a minute away. All of this is Ideally situated near Pixar and local favorites Rudy’s Can’t Fail Cafe and Arizmendi Bakery, and moments from Bay Street Emeryville and the vibrant Emeryville Peninsula where runners, dog-walkers, and cyclists enjoy trails, panoramic views, sailing, and dining. Commuters will love the convenient (and free) Emery-Go-Round for direct access to the Amtrak Train Station and BART, and an AC Transit bus line travels to San Francisco.
Emeryville is a small corridor between Berkeley and Oakland bordered by the eastern shore of the Bay. Though geographically the city is small—just a bit more than one square mile—there’s a great deal of function and influence packed into it. Emeryville’s prime location is the hub of several major freeways and is an important transcontinental railway connection with service to Seattle, Los Angeles and Chicago.
Known as a dynamic arts and music community, you’ll find various works of art throughout the community in the public domain. The Art in Public Places Program, as commissioned by the city government, has attracted a growing population of artists and musicians specializing in traditional as well as high-tech mediums.
The major employer is Pixar Animation Studios. Locals who enjoy Pixar’s iconic animated feature films can often spot local landmarks and references in many of those movies. Another major employer is IKEA, which anchors the well-known Bay Street shopping complex, an imaginative collection of retailers, entertainment, hospitality and residential opportunities. The destination shopper’s paradise comprises more than 382,000 square feet and draws visitors from all over the greater Bay Area.
