Originally built 1906, this now completely re-imagined and fully renovated Bushrod masterpiece is essentially brand new. With 4 bedrooms and three and one half baths it has been meticulously re-crafted by the renowned design/build team Next Level Architecture. The main level features a light filled entry that opens onto the majestic central stair. Off the garden is the 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 Ghanbari Design. This spacious kitchen and large dining area benefit from the Next Level signature folding solid wood doors which open to a covered veranda, providing the perfect transition to the sunny south facing garden beyond. With doors opened, the outdoors becomes a perfect extension of the great room.
Upstairs you find 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 main 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. The final touch is the attached garage with interior access to the home making life convenient and easy.
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.
