This $619,000 red brick Oakland home makes loft-style living effortless

Main features

Upon entering the cavernous hallway, you'll drift past the half bath and discover an inner brick and timber chamber flooded with natural light and enhanced by lovely wood floors. Not to mention the beautiful high ceilings. Proof that plenty of style fits into 1,200 square feet.

The neutral and muted colors throughout can simply remain, if that's your vibe. However, this style of home acts as a canvas and easily enables pops of color to be added throughout so you can really transform and make your own mark.

Take in the concrete walls, exposed brick, and dramatic overhead wood beams. As you look up past the second story bedroom, you'll see an enormous state of the art operable Velux smart skylight powered by solar energy. Just imagine stargazing at night, and enjoying blue skies during the day.

The main living space is large enough that it could even be broken up into dining and relaxing areas, with room for a corner office or workout space. With this much space and gorgeous light, working from home would be effortless!

Note the copious amounts of storage - from the white cupboards to the black sliding door wardrobes, and even more upstairs - you'll never run out of space.

The mezzanine bedroom

At the top of the spiral staircase is a spacious yet cozy sleeping mezzanine with dual skylights, yet another closet, and large private bath with walk-in shower.

The open concept kitchen

More industrial elements can be found in the updated, open concept kitchen that over looks the living room. Features include white subway tile backsplash and new slate grey Silestone countertops that were designed in Italy and fabricated in Spain. As well as a commercial style sink and stainless steel appliances.

Whether you're plating a quick dinner at the dining countertop or hosting an easy happy hour, this area seamlessly interacts with the open-plan layout of the home.
