Just yards from the shore of Lake Merritt, 491-493 Bellevue Avenue is a rare, vacant 5BD/3BA duplex, completely remodeled, with a street-level 2BD/1BA home and a second 3BD/2BA home above. Both homes feature light-filled rooms, hardwood floors, newly remodeled kitchens with stone countertops and new appliances, updated modern baths, and gorgeous views of the lake.
The two homes share an expansive rear patio - a tranquil space perfect for al fresco entertaining, shaded by mature citrus and magnolia trees with plenty of space for multiple seating areas. The home includes off-street parking and a large basement laundry room with a washer and dryer.
Anchored by a unique stacked stone fireplace, the gracious common area features newly-refinished hardwood floors and a high, beamed ceiling with recessed lights. A large picture window overlooks the lake, and multiple windows on three sides flood the rooms with natural light. Multipane French doors open onto the spacious front porch overlooking Lake Merritt - a perfect spot for relaxing with morning coffee.
Newly remodeled, the kitchen boasts stone countertops, new appliances, and convenient access to the rear patio and parking area. The two bedrooms - one featuring dual closets and French doors opening onto the front porch - share a remodeled bath with nicely tiled shower over tub.
The upstairs home has a modern, open feel with Art Deco touches. The newly remodeled kitchen with stone countertops and new appliances is open to the light-filled common area overlooking the lake. The spacious primary bedroom overlooks the lake, and is adjacent to a second bedroom and shared bath. On the other side of the home, a third bedroom is adjacent to a newly remodeled bath with dual sinks and tiled shower over tub.
