Lovely 2BD/1BA classic North Berkeley Craftsman with vintage charm, great natural light, and hardwood floors throughout!
Through the sweet front porch, the formal entryway opens into the the light-filled living room with multi-pane windows, views of the front garden, and decorative fireplace with vintage surround and hearth. A wide arch connects the living room to the spacious, formal dining room, which has original built-in cabinets and overhead lighting.
Down a short hallway, the two bedrooms are sunny and spacious with ample closet space. The updated bathroom is situated in the hall between the two bedrooms and has retro floor tiles and a shower-over-tub.
Through a butler-style door from the dining room, the charming kitchen has terra-cotta tiled floors, a Wedgewood gas stove, and lots of cabinet space. The sunny eat-in kitchen is large enough for a dining table and is the perfect place to share a meal with family and friends. On warm nights, open the glass paneled french door off the dining area to let in some summer air and the sound of bubbling backyard fountains, or even enjoy your meal on the back deck overlooking the terraced rear garden. The shady, terraced backyard space is complete with a charcoal grill, patio table and chairs, small lawn area, hammock, a lemon tree, and 2 soothing garden fountains. (The two small shingle bungalows behind the house are not for rent and will be maintained and very occasionally inhabited by the owners.)
Parking in driveway. There is clean storage plus a small workshop in the full size basement underneath the house. Owner pays utilities and will bill tenant 85% of the PG&E and ⅔ of the water bill monthly.
Fantastic location! This home is perfectly situated near some of Berkeley’s best parks including Indian Rock, Live Oak Park, Tilden Regional Park, and the Berkeley Rose Garden. Plus, enjoy the best of Berkeley’s shopping and dining in the nearby Gourmet Ghetto and Solano Ave!
