Totally Re-modeled Bliss in NOBE

Aileen” according to dictionary sources means a bright shining light. So it is with this charming updated Craftsman on this neighborly street in the heart of NOBE. The home at 869 Aileen welcomes you with light -filled rooms and architectural details still intact. Large by NOBE standards, it has over 2,000 square feet with 3+ bedrooms, 2 ½ baths. That includes a light and bright master suite … plus a Mosh pit - “Zoom “room to leave your imagination room to roam

As you enter, the living room welcomes you with its large windows centered on an artisan-tiled fireplace. That opens to the dining room with Craftsman built ins and industrial farmhouse chandelier. The large eat-in kitchen has been tastefully updated with Shaker cabinets, stainless open shelving, quartz countertops, stainless appliances and wine fridge. There’s plenty of room for friends and family to gather round either at the peninsula or separate table while you play iron chef. Up a few stairs, there’s the large and light-filled master suite with room to curl up with a book. Or to really relax, step inside the spa bath with soaking tub, double shower, double vanity with vessel sinks, anchored by an artisan- tiled floor. 

Just downstairs from there, a large “Zoom” room, play room, or Peloton room gives you what you don’t always find in NOBE. Room. But just in case you still desire more, there is a large – 22’ by 25’ -- basement ready to be developed with your own imagination. All of which opens to an inviting patio and garden, giving you a creative “outdoor room. “ 

Perhaps best of all, you’re not in Walnut Creek. You’re in the heart of NOBE. A few blocks to BART. A few blocks to Temescal and Rockridge. And just 20 minutes to the City.
