Modern Farmhouse in Emeryville

On the border where Emeryville meets Oakland, lies 1241 Stanford Avenue, a picturesque three bedroom, two and a half bath home that exceeds expectations at every turn. Originally built in 1943, the home has been expertly rebuilt and expanded by local builder Cornerstone Capital creating a flawless conflation of traditional farmhouse elements, modern amenities utilizing luxury materials.

The curb appeal is immediately undeniable, with a perfect corner location, charming A-frame front, and a glowing entry landing. This opens to the true heart of the home, an expansive kitchen, living, and dining area, where you will find recessed LED lighting and stylish designer fixtures. With white shaker cabinets, marble countertops, stainless steel appliances, and a exotic wood wrapped center island, the kitchen is gorgeous. The island overlooks the living and dining areas where an abundance of windows and a set of large french doors invite the sun in throughout the day. Nearby is a convenient and well-appointed guest powder room.

Moving towards the back of the home, we step down into the primary suite, an oasis overlooking the garden. The room is airy and welcoming, with a walk-in closet, an on-trend basket chandelier, and french doors out to the garden. The ensuite bath has been carefully designed with a walnut trough hanging vanity, glass-door shower, and ambient lighting for optimal relaxation. Upstairs are the remaining two bedrooms, which are both sunny and share a marble and hexagon tiled bath with a shower-over-tub.

The garden is convenient and features an auto sliding gate and turf-stone pavers and a sizable wood deck off the dining area.  In addition there is a matching farmhouse inspired outbuilding with glass slider, which could be perfect as an office or simply as storage.

1241 Stanford is an idyllic modern farmhouse in a prime Emeryville location, surrounded by parks, shops, restaurants, and EZ transportation options to SF and beyond. With exceptional finishes and new systems throughout, it is just the perfect home in a terrific location.
