Spectacular Bushrod Beauty
Originally built in the early 1900’s, this now completely re-imagined and fully renovated Bushrod masterpiece is essentially brand new. It’s a four bedroom three and one half bath home that was meticulously re-crafted by the renowned design/build team Next Level Architecture, and it checks all the boxes in beauty, practicality, and location. The lower level features a light filled entry that opens onto the majestic central stair. Everywhere throughout this home there are high ceilings, recessed LED lighting, and an abundance of natural light pouring in through custom made mahogany windows .
In the back of the lower level one finds the Next Level signature Great Room. The designer kitchen is spectacular with its combination of top-of-the-line appliances, custom wood work and modern custom cabinets all built by local artisan Ghambari Design. This open kitchen and large dining area benefit from the Next Level signature folding mahogany doors which open to a covered veranda. This provides the perfect transition to the optimal-sized garden beyond. With the doors opened, the outdoors becomes a perfect extension of the great room.
Upstairs you find the living quarters with three of the bedrooms and an office connected by an expansive family space. The first of the two master suites is capacious with a lovely bay window. The splendidly detailed master bath has high end finishes, a dramatic soaking tub, and a walk in shower. The second master, or guest suite, is found on the lower level, and is also generously sized. It too has a well appointed bath. There are, additionally, two more bedrooms upstairs that share a stylish bath, and an office that opens to a deck.
699 61st is in the perfect Bushrod location, one block from the Bushrod park and close to the trendy Temescal eateries and fine restaurants. And with Ashby BART just an eight minute stroll away, this home epitomizes East Bay living at its best.
