Designer bungalow in the heart of Temescal
Down to the studs renovation transformed this classic bungalow into an architectural masterpiece. Situated in the heart of Temescal, only steps away from numerous restaurants and BART, the location is ideal. This open floor plan is designed to accommodate the California lifestyle focusing on bright sunny communal spaces for gatherings and entertaining. The craftsmanship and superior construction will not disappoint.
Step through the front door and you will be impressed with the sunny and airy feeling. Off to the left is a perfect place to hang your coat and kick off your shoes. There’s also a nook ideal for a home office.
The open living/dining/kitchen is truly special. If the heart of the home is the kitchen then this kitchen has a BIG heart. Every detail was carefully thought through; it is a true joy to be in. You wil be sure to create lasting memories as you become the host of many special events and gatherings. The shaker cabinets are numerous, the custom island is enormous and the white quartz counters plentiful. Do not miss the octagonal marble backsplash, the suite of Kitchen-Aid stainless steel appliances or the farmhouse sink. The lighting is sublime with recessed lights, ambient under counter and in-cabinet lighting, two large skylights and the three perfect pendant lights adorning the island. All of this plus just a few steps out French doors to the deck and patio.
Off the hall you will find the bedrooms including a spacious en-suite overlooking the yard with a walk-in closet. The Elfa closet system maximizes the space and provides efficient storage. The ensuite bathroom is decorated with patterned cement floor tiles, white subway tiled walk-in shower, frameless glass doors, a rain showerhead and shower wand, wood vanity and elegant lighting.
The secondary bedroom is warm and inviting with unique wall paper, modern ceiling fan and double closet including Elfa organizers. This bedroom connects to the secondary bathroom which is also accessible from the communal space. The bathroom has a patterned cement tile floor, shower over tub with white subway tile, wood vanity with marble sink top, matching storage cabinets, and stylish lighting.
The outdoor escape is a south-facing rear deck and patio. The spacious redwood deck is just off the kitchen and can host numerous guests. BBQs are easy with a built-in gas line. Step down to the flagstone patio offering a secondary space to entertain or relax with a great novel. Access to the driveway can be found off the side, to the single car garage with additional space for storage or a clean and functional space to tinker or create a hobby place.
All of this just minutes to Temescal’s very own gourmet ghetto.
