DESCRIPTION:

Unique and enchanting three-level corner end unit schoolhouse loft with two enclosed rooms, a master attic mezzanine with oversized loft closet &/or office, and a private deck & outdoor space in Oakland’s coveted Oak Park Studios building.

Centrally located yet nestled amongst a canopy of trees, 3239 Kempton Avenue’s Tudor style building was constructed in 1927. In it’s past life the property served the community as Edison Elementary School. Prior to being a lovely home, this historic unit was once a third grade classroom!

This incredible residence features an open style floor plan, voluminous ceiling heights in living room & attic mezzanine, large schoolroom windows with fantastic light, warm vintage wood floors, a gable window, and a deep window seat with French doors looking out to a view of downtown Oakland & San Francisco. The kitchen features stainless appliances - refrigerator, dishwasher, vent hood, and a gas range stove & oven. Plenty of storage with built-in cabinets and office desk furniture downstairs and ample closet space. The large window paned door exits out to this unit’s private deck and outdoor space.

The school ceased operations in 1975 but then found its second life in 1986 when a developer converted the property into 14-unit condominium development, thus establishing Oak Park Studios Association. To this day, the association is self-managed, communal, and welcoming in the way they conduct their business. The unit has one parking space in the parking lot and a storage closet below the back deck. There is also a common garden and grove for gatherings, BBQs, and festivities. HOA dues are $590 per month.
