The Story of 627 59th Street
Thoroughly renovated, this 1923 now-modern Mediterranean features an expanded composition of whitewashed walls, lustrous custom woodwork, black and steel accents underpinned by an all-new energy-efficient infrastructure. The reimagined three-bedroom home, plus new one-bedroom dwelling, reflect a rustic, radiant Mediterranean bygone air infused with contemporary flair. Two main-floor bedrooms are served by a full bathroom while the ethereal second floor is dedicated to a master suite and office. Expansive openings link public spaces seamlessly and extend the interior to a deck, balcony, and vibrant garden for glorious indoor-outdoor living.
A quiet, leafy North Oakland residential block, the location offers ideal proximity to everyday destinations in nearby Temescal, Rockridge, and Berkeley. Within a mile, enjoy a diverse dining scene, Sunday Farmer’s Market, BART, and highway access. Even closer, the location lies between both Dover and Bushrod Parks and Community Gardens, offering outdoor activities with walkability.
Set picturesquely, landscaped level garden is enveloped by hardscaping and decorative steel gates. The revitalized façade, accentuated by Palladian-style arched window detail and red-clay roof tiles, signals the home’s appreciation for the past and convergence with 2019. Enter to white-oak wide-plank floors, a lighting scheme combining recessed lights, eye-catching sconces and pendants, and a rejuvenated original fireplace plumbed for gas. Broad arched openings between living room, dining room, and kitchen grant gracious flow and easy interaction between spaces. Fresh surfaces with timeless appeal equip the kitchen: solid walnut cabinetry, handmade subtly textured subway-tile backsplashes, and Bianco quartz counters that form a peninsula with bar seating. Stainless appliances by Bosch and Fisher-Paykel integrate among curated components like floating shelves and filament-bulb glass pendants. French doors open to maintenance-free, uber-durable Trex decking, inviting al fresco dining and lounging.
Elements reiterate for a unified aesthetic; bathrooms integrate subway tile and quartz in soothing shades and sophisticated combinations. The spacious master bath, appointed with radiant heat under foot, separate toilet chamber, and floating double-sink vanity, leads to a well configured walk-in closet-dressing room.
Rearward in the garden, the elaborately endowed guest retreat features a full kitchen and bathroom, separate bedroom and living room. Abounding in amenities, it integrates laundry facilities and radiant heat beneath chic concrete floors. Skylights and garden-outlook windows bathe the space in light, and French doors open to a secluded stone terrace.
Ensuring comfort, energy and cost efficiency, and longevity, the home’s infrastructure comprises new electrical, structural, water-heater and plumbing systems, LED lighting, smart thermostat and doorbell technology.
