About our home

I have a really cute and large (1100 sqft) early 1900's ground floor flat available for swap.

Located in the trendy & upscale neighborhood of Lake Merritt/Piedmont in Oakland. Walking distance to several dozen cafes & restaurants, 2 pharmacies, 2 grocery stores, 2 natural food markets, yoga studios, trendy boutique shops, lounges/bars, and the vintage Grand Lake Theater. Beautiful quiet garden in the back yard. Laundry on-site. Street parking only.

Built in the early 1900's, it has all the charm of that period. Cute built in cupboards, crown molding, high ceilings, and tons of light! It is the bottom flat in a 5 unit vintage building. There is access to a nice garden with chairs and grills just outside of the back door. Very private and quiet. Nice neighbors.

It has medium sized bedroom with 2 closets and a king sized bed. The living room is large and fully furnished with high speed wifi internet and a HDTV LCD flat screen television and Comcast Cable TV.

There is also a 2nd bedroom off the living room and kitchen that we have converted into an office/dining room. Spacious kitchen with gas stove, modern appliances, vintage formica table & nook. Tile in bathroom and kitchen, hardwood floors throughout the rest of the flat.

Looking for similar accommodations that would fit 2 people...a large studio or 1 bedroom would be perfect.

No pets, no smokers, no partiers please.

If you are interested, please email for more information and photos. Thanks!


Sunny and green Oakland, short walk to many amenities, entertainment, transportation, dining. Near lovely Lake Merritt Park and the Oakland Hills. Close to BART, 3 blocks to freeway that takes you to San Francisco or Berkeley. Right over the SF Bay Bridge from San Francisco. Residential neighborhood, with shops and restaurants just down the block.

I am a professional photographer and marketing professional. I enjoy art, music and travel.
I speak english and german. I love animals and have a dog, my pug Otis. I am, however, allergic to cats.
