Private Luxury Retreat in Upper Rockridge

What is it like to live in the jungle? At 5850 Romany Road you don’t need to guess. This ultra secluded modern home was renovated, including the impressive rainforest inspired front landscaped garden, all with a laser focus on privacy and luxury.  Just above Broadway Terrace, yet setback overlooking its gated drive, this contemporary three bed, two and a half bath tour de force was designed for indoor/outdoor lifestyle in a verdant oasis-like setting.

Pull into the oversized detached garage, and enter level-in to the first of many courtyard areas where double wooden doors open to a skylit entry. On the right are the spectacular main living areas providing an abundance of versatile space, with tall ceilings, plentiful skylights, and warm hardwood floors. The sleek powder room with glass above counter sink adds a splash of style and fun.

In the kitchen, an oversized marble peninsula connects to the expansive living space, and an adjacent dining room makes entertaining possibilities endless. Finished with on-trend design choices, plenty of sleek storage, and stainless steel appliances, the kitchen is intended to excite both those who seek function and style. Nearby is the sunny family room with built-in storage, and double glass doors with steps down to the ultra private patio dining area. This two story jungle wall of yucca plants, giant bird-of-paradise, acacia and more makes this garden area feel completely secluded from the world, with no neighbors in sight. On summer afternoons the discrete motorized awning can easily shade you from the sun’s rays.

At the other end of the home are two ensuite bedrooms. The primary suite boasts large dimensions allowing for plenty of furniture, as well as, a vaulted ceiling, and a walk-in closet. The spacious thoughtfully designed ensuite bath has a double floating vanity, glass-enclosed marble tiled shower with bench, and a private water closet. The laundry room bookends the home complete with a washer & dryer and access out to yet another enclosed patio area. The opportunities are limitless, with space for planting beds, a dining setup, and more. The third bedroom, with its own private entrance, is expansive and features enhanced sound absorption and could be an office, guest room, studio space, or whatever you need.

Enjoy extremely rare seclusion and solitude in this desirable Upper Rockridge neighborhood, while just moments from local Village Market, and near the heart of Rockridge and College Avenue where shopping abounds. With easy access to the freeway and San Francisco and quick connection to BART, the location could not be better.

Special only begins to describe 5850 Romany Road, a one-of-a-kind home for those seeking modern style, luxury and privacy. Welcome home.
