    Unique Multi-Use Mini Compound Off Piedmont Avenue

    4001-4003 Howe is a multi-use mini compound featuring an executive style two bedroom, two and a half bath home, a contemporary studio cottage, plus an income producing luxury commercial space all located in the heart of the Piedmont Avenue shopping district. You enter this extraordinary property via the gated garden and stone courtyard which leads through to the double entry doors of the luxurious open floor plan main home. Completely remodeled, this Edwardian has been reinvented in both style and strength to include steel beams, added for increased support, and expert color consultation resulting in an elegant palette. The main home is appointed with all the bells and whistles one could want, including Herringbone floors, built-in speakers, and sleek integrated storage solutions.

    The kitchen is ideal for those who enjoy minimalistic design, with modern white cabinetry, integrated appliances, and a huge island ideal for hosting. It was completed with high-end finishes and technology, including a Bosch induction cooktop. It is perfectly connected to a bright dining space marked by an artistic chandelier. Nearby is an ideally sized living space with a custom media alcove and seamless connection to the remainder of the home for easy entertaining. An uber-stylish moody powder room is tucked away off the entry, adding convenience and drama.

    Upstairs, behind floor-to-ceiling mahogany doors, await two ensuite bedrooms. The primary has a hotel feel, with custom draperies, a glass door out to the open balcony, and a large walk-through closet. The ensuite is filled with light, large mirrors, and bright finishes for a tranquil, dreamy ambiance. Two separate vanities bookend the space, with a large walk-in shower, and bidet-style toilet in between. The second bedroom also has a sumptuous ensuite, with a soaking tub and floor-to-ceiling wall tile.

    On the lowermost level is a bonus space with built-in wall unit with sink, and a workshop/storage area leading to a dual security door offering private access to the commercial space. With its discrete access, the commercial space could offer multiple home office options or with its direct street frontage on Howe, the space could also be a wonderful separate income generating property. With four separate offices, a stylish lobby, ADA compliant bath and kitchenette it is ideal.

    The garden has been upgraded to feature a vegetable garden, automatic irrigation, and new lighting designed by award winning landscape design firm Past the Gate. Enjoy peaceful evenings listening to the trickle of the fountain and enjoying the warmth from your concrete fire pit. Through the gate, the driveway offers parking for two.

    Across the garden sits the cozy cottage, with tall ceilings, radiant concrete floors, and a private fenced dining patio. It is studio style with an open, well-equipped kitchenette, large closet with a stackable washer and dryer, and reclaimed wooden ceilings for added warmth. The space has been maximized with unique touches like built-in storage, a three-walled glass shower, and a window seat. Perfect for family or visiting friends, this space would make anyone feel right at home.

    For those who love to be close to excitement, 4001 Howe is located just one block from Piedmont Avenue and less than a mile to MacArthur BART. This area is home to some of the East Bay’s best spots like La Farine Bakery, Fenton’s Creamery, and many fine dining options including acclaimed Commis. Convenient, private, and extensively remodeled with plenty of income-generating opportunities, 4001 Howe is a one-of-a-kind residence.
