Lake Merritt Real Estate Market

Another distinct aspect relating to Lake Merritt is that each of its four sides all offer something unique in terms of what you'll find on the real estate market. With its west side positioned close to Downtown Oakland, condos and apartments are what's most common along Lakeside Drive and many other interior streets found in this part of the city. On the other hand, if you're an Oakland home buyer who's specifically in the market for a detached single-family residence, Merritt, Clinton, Cleveland Heights, and countless other neighborhoods to the south and east of Lake Merritt all feature some very desirable opportunities at varying price points. Immediately to the north of Lake Merritt, which for our money is one of the more attractive places to live in all of Oakland, is where you'll find a great variety of housing options that range from newer construction residential lofts in the East Bay as well as condos and townhouses to some of the most expensive and most historic single-family homes that you'll find anywhere close to Oakland's Central Business District.

Lake Merritt Community Amenities

If you're interested in being outside and taking full advantage of Northern California's mild climate, living close to Lake Merritt in Oakland could very well be the ideal place for you to consider when browsing active homes and condos for sale. On Lake Merritt's north side is the stunning Lake Side Park, which features all kinds of open green space and walking trails that couldn't provide a better place to go for a morning jog or afternoon run. But regardless of where you live along Lake Merritt, its miles of beautiful shoreline feature plenty of walking paths, playgrounds, and even an amphitheater that all help make this one of the more special places to call home in the entire Bay Area region.
