A Quintessential Nobe Compound

The word that springs to mind when you first step foot in 1042 55th Street is: splendid.  This engaging three bedroom two bath home has been completely re-visualized with a floor plan that is modern, open and full of light. In addition it boasts a one bedroom one bath cottage in the garden.  

Newly remodeled and expanded, one immediately senses the high level of finish and detail that was used throughout the renovation, from its new wood flooring to its stunning designer lighting. The great room feels spacious and welcoming combining the three traditional spaces of living, dining and kitchen into one glorious whole. The glamorous kitchen area features high end appliances, oak cabinetry, farmhouse sink and gorgeous quartz counters and island with waterfall edge.The kitchen is made even more wonderful with its large glass door that opens to a spacious deck.The first two of the three bedrooms can be found off an adjacent hallway and share a charmingly detailed bath. In the impressive master suite is where we find French doors that spill out onto a sumptuous private deck and even further out to the enchanting garden beyond. Its private master bath is elegantly detailed with marble tile and glass walk-in shower. Lastly there is the newly added in-law cottage with its sweet living room/ kitchen combination space, bath and bedroom. This is a perfect solution for extended families or for those who want to offset their mortgage with rental income. Finally a long driveway and all new systems complete the home. 

1042 55th Street is located in NOBE, which is becoming one of the East Bay’s favorite locations.  Close to Temescal Creek Park, local cafe’s, shopping in Emeryville and near SF via BART and the freeway it is a home not to be missed.

Visiting her home town of Oakland, Gertrude Stein said, “There’s no there there.” With all the changes over the past decade, Oakland has finally become a destination of its own. The Uptown Project, Jerry Brown’s 10K Housing Initiative, new housing development and the rising value of condominiums, lofts and single-family homes have contributed to Downtown Oakland’s success.

Downtown is the heart of Oakland, and the city’s changes are most evident here. San Francisco Magazine named it "the" place to live and play. The area now offers all the benefits of other metropolitan centers. Civic and cultural centers, residential and retail buildings—both new and historic—are focused around Oakland's City Center which features an on-site BART station.

A unique area is Old Oakland. Surrounding Washington Street, old town features Swan’s Market, a farmer’s market and many upscale bars and restaurants. Some of which include Levende East, Tamarindo Antojeria, B Restaurant, The Trappist, Cafe 817, Cock A Doodle Cafe and Air Lounge. The city’s art scene and nightlife have flourished as more and more people migrate to the area. Good times can always be had at Luka’s Taproom, Flora, The Uptown and Maxwell’s Lounge. Caffe Verbena and LeCheval are also city favorites. And classic performance halls like the Paramount Theater and Fox Theatre make for an exciting night out on the town.
