Chic urban Mutual Creamery loft located blocks from BART, Lake Merritt and Downtown Oakland’s vibrant scene. Walkscore 91! The voluminous two-story floor plan includes two bright spacious bedrooms each convenient to a large full bath. The upper bedroom and bath are adjacent to a spacious loft area useful as a family room, home office, guest space or playroom. Technically a live/work unit, the reinforced brick exterior and large open floor plan are designed for traditional or flexible living. The unit includes a deeded patio and a two car Klaus Lift parking space steps from the entry. Included with the loft are a stacked front-load washer and dryer, stainless steel appliances and air conditioning. The Mutual Creamery building originally dates from the early 20th Century. These lofts were designed and built in 2005-2006 with a carefully crafted aesthetic. The result is a work of art! This desirable gated community of 26 units has lots of period charm with luxury HOA amenities including a Luxer One secure electronic package locker system, Butterfly MX smart video intercom system, and Webpass Google Fiber High Speed Internet. The common area includes well maintained landscaping along cobblestone walkways and the “pavilion,” an enclosed meeting place with bike storage and picnic tables.

Some favorite hang outs of the owners of 425 E 11th Street within blocks are
Cam Huong Cafe - this area has tons of great Vietnamese food, but this spot is our favorite. The Bahn Mi are exceptional, and inexpensive. There's also a Quickly down the street to get your boba fix.
Portal - excellent Lake-side spot with rotating beer tap and good eats. Great for both weekend brunch and weekday happy hour.
Friday Nights at OMCA - awesome weekly event just a few blocks away with foodtrucks, music, dancing, and late admission into Oakland Museum of California. They open up the museum's inner courtyard for extra seating, and lots of folks bring their kids.
Lake Merritt - on a sunny weekend, you'll find every stripe of Oaklander hanging out by the Lake--walking their dogs and strollers, picnicking with friends, sunbathing...we'll miss living so close to the Lake!
Lake Merritt BART - can't beat this commute."
The Lake Merritt area is one of Oakland's most vibrant and exciting destinations https://www.visitoakland.com/things-to-do/neighborhoods/lake-merritt/
Downtown Oakland is home to the skyscrapers of giant health care provider Kaiser Permanente and Clorox; high-tech startups like Internet radio station Pandora; and sports franchises Oakland Raiders, the Golden State Warriors, and the Oakland Athletics. Newly developed condominium projects with modern conveniences, a few old Victorians, and contemporary structures make up the majority of the housing in this mostly urban area. Oakland’s heritage as a port city can still be found in its communities and cuisine: Le Cheval, a Vietnamese neighborhood institution; Rio California, a Brazilian eatery located in Preservation Park; and Ichiro, a Japanese sushi bar. Downtown Oakland’s entertainment scene includes the massive Paramount Theatre on Broadway and the Fox Theater on Telegraph Avenue. These former movie palaces now feature symphony performances, ballet, rock acts, and showings of classic movies. For the gallery-goers, Oakland First Fridays is a gallery walk that includes artisan works and food vendors. Some Downtown Oakland residents can walk to work, while those who work in San Francisco have access to two Bay Area Rapid Transit (BART) stations.
