Located inside a West Oakland building with 19 other lofts—used mostly by artists—this industrial-sized space comes with a daring architectural touch: no windows.
This raises the eternal tree-falling-in-the-forest question: Is a skylight a window? Insert mind-blown emoji here.
The answer is: no. A skylight is not a window since you cannot see the world out of a skylight—only the sky. Further, you cannot usually escape out of a skylight. Consider it a close relative. So, what this Oakland loft lacks in windows it more than make up for in oversized skylights, the window’s cousin.
Featuring one bedroom, one and a half bathrooms, and 1,084 square feet, 3015 Myrtle #2, a converted brick and timber warehouse inside Myrtle Street Studios, comes with 21-foot ceilings adorned with wood paneling, exposed beams and clinker brick, and concrete floors.
The two massive living panels in the main common area add a much-needed hint of nature indoors. The washer/dryer unit is a welcome sight for those accustomed to hauling laundry to the laundromat. And there’s even private parking available.
Asking is $649,000; it’s listed through Sai Kopacek of Caldecott Properties.
