Located near the bustling center of Emeryville and significant mixed-use development zone, 4250 Halleck Street is an award-winning David Baker, top level LEED-certified home inspired by Dutch row houses and British garden mews. Completed in 2007, the project was awarded for sustainable community attributes while providing surprising, luxurious amenities for the modern consumer. One of the rare larger, corner units, 4250 Halleck features 1,865 square feet and is neighbor to the Bay Street shopping center, Emeryville waterfront, and a terrific commuter location.
The main level is the heart of the home featuring soaring ceilings and wide open spaces. It is the ideal backdrop for an extraordinary life comprised of a living space, dining area, half bathroom, and a state-of-the-art kitchen featuring stainless steel appliances, ample stained solid oak cabinetry, Caesarstone quartz counters, and a sleek island. Hardwood floors span the entire room, and tall, column-shaped windows open the floor up to sunlight.
Stairs lead from the kitchen/living area to the mezzanine level—an open, airy salon-inspired space, complete with an entertainment nook, serving as a cozy television area, game area, meditation space, or a tucked away space for a daybed. Also on this level is a unique opportunity for an at-home luxurious spa experience – a steam shower room with wide rainfall showerhead, sink, and a wooden spa bench. Jade green mosaic tiles on the wall and a skylight enhance the experience, which feels like a soothing shower in warm rain.
Follow the stairs to the penthouse/master suite and its accompanying spa-like bath. The bedroom has bright windows, which look over the canopies of the palm trees outside. A matte glass sliding door leads to a private study, which can easily be transformed into a home office or dressing area. The office area can remain closed for privacy or open in order to offer additional storage space in the bedroom (the screen can also be removed to enlarge the bedroom area). The master bath features an Ann Sacks Japanese soaking tub, a stylish glass shower, twin vanity with dual raised rectangular sinks, and a broad, well-lit mirror. Between the master bed and bath lies a convenient laundry closet.
On the ground level sits a large bedroom with garden views and a private outdoor patio, a large two-car garage with automatic garage door opener and a utility space with tank-less water heater. Other features of the home include Galvalume siding, built-in iPort and charging station, Bisazza Italian glass tiling, Bosch Energy Star appliance package, and a security system.
