The “NOBE” neighborhood, at the confluence of the North Oakland/Berkeley/Emeryville borders, is the hottest new area in the East Bay, and fast becoming a magnet for homebuyers seeking a vibrant cultural environment, fine old architecture, warm fog-free climate, great public transportation, and walkability.
A walk down 59th Street will show many examples of exquisitely designed houses from a past era, built with detail, craftsmanship, and materials no longer available today. At 1067 59th Street, you will find that rare example of the best of both worlds – a lovely vintage home with tasteful modern accents and amenities.
This home was built in 1910, at the tail end of the “Queen Anne” era of architecture, and the beginning of the “Arts and Crafts” movement. Now artfully restored and remodeled with careful attention to the quality and design aesthetic of its original era, virtually every structural component has been given new life.
