Designed by renowned architect Herman Baumann, the exquisite Art Deco Bellevue-Staten Building has been a fixture of the city's skyline since 1929, and is now on the National Register of Historic Places. The elegant two-story lobby features an intricate coffered ceiling and bronze elevator doors adorned by whimsical panels of squirrels nibbling on acorns.
Suite 901 is situated at a corner location in the building, featuring sweeping Lake Merritt, city, and Oakland Hills views. An original cast concrete fireplace graces the living room, a space dominated by two picture windows framing views of Lake Merritt. Parquet wood floors span the bedrooms and living areas, while the bathrooms feature ornate tile work. The updated kitchen includes period-like black and white tile complemented by modern stainless steel appliances. Adjacent is the formal dining room with wide doorways and sunny windows to take in the skyline. High ceilings and tall windows make the two gracious bedrooms feel even more spacious. An updated bath includes a glass-enclosed step-in shower, while the other has a shower over tub. A stacked in-unit washer and dryer offers convenience.
