This phenomenal mixed-use Temescal property was lovingly designed by Kirk Peterson and built in 2003 by Feldman Construction using green building materials and environmentally conscious building techniques.
The storefront currently houses Glow, a prenatal/postnatal massage studio that is both beautiful and successful. In previous iterations, the storefront housed the Emerson Grocery, and later a candy store. The original 1915 exterior structure is still delightfully present.
Throughout the home itself, every detail was precisely thought out. The property reminds one of the very best modern urban homes featured in Dwell magazine or Sunset Magazine's Best of the West collections. From the energy-efficient 3-layer torch down bitumen roof to the lovingly recycled vertical grain Douglas fir trim throughout the house (salvaged from the original 1915 structure), this whole property glows with intention and super urban chic.
As you enter through the side, you are met with huge picture windows past the gated entry. A pleasant patio garden greets you next, with convenient access to the one-car carport, play area and more.
The kitchen/dining area connects you with the kitchen itself, which features concrete counters by Concreteworks, beautiful wood cabinets and high-end appliances. Walking down a hallway, you have a lovely full bathroom and den or media center that opens out to the yard/utility area. This room features a large built-in bookcase system.
Upstairs there is a beautiful bedroom that opens out onto a lovely enclosed patio with great urban views, a smaller bedroom redolent with the huge blossoms from the bougainvillea and other flowering bowers outside, and a large, lovely and cheerful yellow-tiled bathroom. The master bedroom has its own balcony, beautiful tiled shower and sink area, and large built-in closet system. There is radiant tubing heat concrete flooring downstairs and radiant tubing heat under the hardwood upstairs.
The location is prime and becoming even more coveted with each passing day. Temescal is the vibrant, eclectic center of new Oakland, an old neighborhood that has become one of the most sought-after and au courant! There are great restaurants and stores up and down the Telegraph corridor, and the street fair is becoming famous for how much fun it is!
Commute possibilities abound, as well as significant public transit options.
