Modern Re-imagined Compound in NOBE

Situated on a tree-lined street, 871 53rd Street was once a traditional Craftsman style home, originally built in 1908, but now is a completely transformed and modernized with an extra cottage creating a stylish mini-compound all newly built and remodeled  by local design/build team Cornerstone Capital. Totaling 4 beds, and 3.5 baths, with touches like soaring ceilings, engineered oak flooring, high-end finishes, plus a perfectly appointed one bed, one bath ADU cottage, this property checks every box.

A quaint front porch welcomes you into the entry which is framed by the living and dining spaces. The vaulted ceiling and bay window makes the dining area feel special, yet proximity to the kitchen peninsula with seating for three keeps it casual. The kitchen allows communication to nearly every part of the home, with stunning gloss cabinetry, carrara marble countertops, and a new stainless steel suite of appliances making it even sweeter. Two bedrooms share a Jack and Jill style bath with a shower-over-tub and dramatic floor-to-ceiling wall tile. A powder room off the kitchen provides a convenient respite for guests. This portion of the home sits a few steps above the great room, with a marbled pony wall and wide staircase maintaining the open feel.

Stepping down into the great room it’s impossible to ignore the tall ceilings and complimentary chandeliers. Glass french doors and clerestory windows let in wonderful light and connect to the private patio making this the perfect spot to entertain and relax. The tranquil primary retreat is designed for luxury and practicality. Enjoying the same ceiling height as the great room, a geometric chandelier and matching sconces provide cozy warmth. Two identical closets and individual reading lights make the room perfect for sharing. The en-suite is complete with a floating double walnut vanity, glass-door enclosed rain shower, and bright marble countertops adding serenity and style.

The outdoor space has been customized with  built-in bench seating below a lattice privacy wall, large modern patio and new landscaping including a large lawn. A separate path leads from the driveway back to the ADU cottage thoughtfully outfitted with a kitchen, bedroom, bathroom and laundry hook-ups making it perfect for guests, an au-pair, or potential rental income.

871 53rd has been reconfigured for exemplary contemporary California-style living in the popular NOBE neighborhood. Less than a mile from BART, EZ freeway access to SF and shopping of both Temescal and Emeryville, this home is a terrific opportunity to live in one of Oakland's hot spots.
