731-733 59th Street is a rare, vacant 6+BD/3BA, 2750 sq ft Victorian-era duplex in the vibrant NOBE district. Unique and beautifully remodeled, the home includes 3+BD/2BA main home and a street-level 3BD/1BA below. The property enjoys period charm throughout, featuring high ceilings, tall windows, wainscoting, and vintage-style light fixtures that blend easily with the comfort and convenience of stylish modern upgrades. Both units enjoy formal dining rooms, updated kitchens, modern baths, and convenient laundry areas. The shared backyard includes a lawn area shaded by a majestic redwood, an expansive patio, planting beds, and at the rear of the property, a detached structure with a skylight that might serve as a workshop or playroom.
Situated in the centrally located NOBE neighborhood, the home enjoys easy access to Temescal and Rockridge, Downtown Oakland and Berkeley, and many parks and open spaces. For commuters, transportation options include the Transbay bus, BART, the Emery-Go-Round, and buses to Downtown Oakland and Downtown Berkeley.
The upper level 3+BD/2BA home has been substantially remodeled for style and convenience. Tall windows fill the welcoming living room with natural light, and multipane glass French doors open onto the spacious formal dining room. The recently remodeled eat-in kitchen will delight any home chef with its expanse of stone countertops, abundant cabinets, new 4-burner gas range, and a sun-washed dining area. At one end of the kitchen is a stacking washer/dryer and a full bath with a walk-in shower and modern vanity. The home also features three inviting bedrooms – two connected by a shared bath with shower over tub, and a third with charming wainscoting and a vintage built-in hutch. A bonus room at the front of the home might serve as an office or studio.
On the street level, the 3BD/1BA home features a similar floor plan with a large entryway that opens into a light-filled living room with gleaming hardwood floors. Through a doorway, the charming formal dining room enjoys vintage wainscoting and plate rails, a brick fireplace, and built-in hutch typical of the era.
At the back of the home, the remodeled kitchen features stone countertops, ample cabinet space, and new appliances. The adjacent laundry room includes a washer and dryer, storage shelves, and a back door that opens onto steps leading to the large patio – convenient for ferrying drinks and canapes out to hungry guests. Between the living room and kitchen, three bedrooms share a modern bath with shower over tub and vintage built-in drawers and hutch for linens and bathing supplies.
