The Oak Park Condominium complex, located just west of El Camino Real at 938 Clark Avenue in Mountain View, consists of 62 units spread out over 4+ acres of Oak studded grounds. Built in 1978, the complex consist of eleven 2+story buildings, a nice swimming pool and clubhouse.
There are thirtytwo 2-bedroom 1-bath units which are located in buildings 2, 3, 5, and 11 and thirty 2-bedroom 2-bath units which are located in buildings 1, 4, 6, 7, 8, 9, and 10. Located on the street level of each building is an extra long 1-car garage. Walk up two small flights of stairs (7 steps each) to reach the “first floor” units. Two more small flights of stairs (7 steps each) and you reach the second and/or top floor units.
According to county records, the 2-bedroom, 2-bath units have 1069 square feet of livable space and the 2-bedroom, 1-bath units have 982 square feet of livable space. Unlike many of the new condo complexes that are being built today, one can actually get a decent sized bed and furniture in the bedrooms.
The galley style kitchen leads to a small dining area. Many of the kitchens have been remodeled, but there still are a few that haven’t. Note: the kitchens are all electric, so no gas appliances. The living room looks out on to the small deck with storage closet. Note: the living room in end units have an additional window that provides more natural light. Each unit has an interior closet area for a stack-able washer and dryer (most washer/dryers are left at the property when the property is sold, but I would confirm that with the seller and note it in any offer).
The units are heated with electric baseboard heaters and there is no fireplace or air conditioning.
Upgrades that I have seen in the units over the years include: double pane windows, solar tubes that allow more light (top floor units only), and hardwood floors.
As you can tell from the information below, not many units sell in any given year.
