Formal Elegance with a Modern Twist

Offering the same layout as a grand historic home, 636 56th Street has been updated from top-to-bottom with every modern convenience while still honoring the magic of its 1924 provenance. With its massive fully permitted renovation, by local noted builders Millennium Living Spaces, the home has been beautifully modernized with bespoke custom features and trending finishes. Thoughtful design details, an inviting open floor plan, and modern systems make this four bedroom, three-and-a-half bathroom home feel like a sanctuary.

Upon entry, you are warmly welcomed into the generous formal entryway. With a stunning skylight and plenty of closet space, this space functions as a stylish staging area to receive guests. Off this hallway are two bedrooms, a full bathroom and chic black marble powder room. Located at the end of the hallway is the split staircase, which leads you to the great room and second floor bedrooms, respectively. Descending the staircase, connects the living, dining room and kitchen in one open concept space. A stylish brass pendant light illuminates above the powered kitchen island, while textured zellige style counter-to-ceiling tiles offers warmth. Off the living area accordion doors highlight the lovely garden offering indoor-outdoor living. Fully fenced, the kitchen leads out to  the private garden with its new lawn, ideal for games or intimate picnics. From here you will also find the garage, making toting groceries in a breeze. With its gated extra long driveway the property is a perfect retreat.

Then up the split staircase, with its understated modern iron railing, the family room is bathed in light thanks to its many windows and central skylight. Tucked above the stairs is a charming reading nook, with a perimeter of sunny windows. To the left you will find the ensuite bedroom, with floor-to-ceiling wall tile, glass shower, and bespoke built-in vanity. Situated towards the back of the house, the primary bedroom suite is dreamy with its luxurious walk-in closet, custom french doors and juliet balcony, and ensuite spa-inspired bathroom. Here you will find large format floor to ceiling tiling, slick vaulted dual sink custom vanity, and a separate glass enclosed shower and bathtub, all with wall-to-wall windows overlooking the garden.

Centrally positioned in the Bushrod area of NOBE, this home is for those who like to be close to everything. The I-80 is mere minutes away, making the trip to San Francisco a short 20 minutes. Less than 5 minutes away are trendy shops and restaurants in Rockridge and Temescal, and the adorable Bushrod Park can be found just a few blocks down the road. Between its beautiful construction and central location, 636 56th Street is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity and a home not to be missed.
