Spacious, comfortable 4BD/2.5BA home, conveniently located on a quiet cul de sac right off the Arlington in the El Cerrito hills. This home has a traditional 2-story floor plan, retro charm, a lovely backyard, and hardwood floors throughout.
Paneled double doors open into the formal entryway with parquet flooring. Through the entryway, the enormous formal living room is filled with natural light from the wide bay window overlooking the front yard, and has a functional, wood-burning fireplace with a brick mantle, plus a rear sliding glass door to the backyard.
The formal dining room on the other side of the entryway has parquet flooring and opens into the sunny kitchen nook. The adjoining kitchen has loads of cabinet space, a dishwasher, an exposed brick feature around the double oven, and a sweet window above the sink with garden views. There’s a convenient downstairs half bath between the living room and kitchen.
Through the kitchen, there is another large wood-paneled family room/den with windows all around, plus sliding glass doors to the rear patio. With its swank 70’s style wet bar, garden access, and wood-burning fireplace, everyone will want to hang out in this sweet, spacious rec room.
There’s a laundry room/mud room off the kitchen with a washer and dryer and a seperate entrance through the side yard. The laundry room also connects the 2 car garage to the main house. The big 2-car garage has tons of storage plus a utility sink, and room for 2 regular sized cars. Suburban living in the El Cerrito hills!
Upstairs, there’s a 3rd fireplace with a marble surround in the large master bedroom, plus original built-in shelving and a spacious walk-in closet. The ensuite master bath has a large vanity, standing shower, and window with garden views.
Down the hallway, the second and third bedrooms face the front of the house and overlook the front yard. The fourth, wood-paneled bedroom is in the rear of the house and overlooks the backyard. Each of these three rooms receives good natural light and has ample closet space.
The large backyard is accessible through both the living room and family room and is great for anyone with a green thumb. The lovely patio with bird feeders and wind chimes off the kitchen and den is the perfect place to enjoy a cup of coffee and the morning paper or host a few friends for a sunset meal. There is outdoor storage in the rear garden shed, plus an outdoor garden closet around the side of the house. BONUS: This house comes with a private hot tub tucked into a gazebo in the backyard – though the owner doesn’t warranty it’s function. Any tenant who wants to make it work is welcome to enjoy a spa day any day of the week!
Small dogs will be considered.
