Bohemian-chic brown shingle Craftsman in prime central Berkeley location – first time on the rental market! Enjoy 9 months of furnished living in this lovely 5+BR/3BA home that is beautifully upgraded with high end finishes and fixtures – plus vintage Craftsman charm and touches of artistic whimsy throughout.
The covered front porch and sunny yellow front door is tucked on the right side of the house, with mature trees shading the sidewalk off the street. You step into a wide foyer. The front parlor is on the left, with cozy seating and a white brick fireplace. It adjoins a 2nd living room, outfitted as a library with bookshelves lining the walls and a cozy reading nook. A staircase off the library leads to the 2nd story of the home.
The formal dining room is on the right of the foyer, with a large oval dining table and cozy window seat beneath the windows along the side wall. The kitchen is open to the dining room, separated by a wide marble countertop. It’s been freshly upgraded with a 6-burner Wolf range, overhead pot rack, new cabinetry, deep sink, and marble counters. Right off the kitchen is a large pantry with a stainless steel, double door refrigerator.
At the back of the main level, just off the kitchen, is a huge sunroom with couches, a TV, a mural, and colorful carpet squares all over the floor. It has custom shades on the ceilings and walls – you can let the sun in for your morning yoga, then close up the room for your movie night! French doors off the sunroom leads to the large backyard, with shady trees and a central patio with a dining table to enjoy your meals al fresco.
Heading back to the main entrance foyer: there is a door that leads to an interior bedroom and full bathroom tucked into the middle of the home’s main level – a remnant from it’s history as a duplex. These rooms are quite private, away from the hustle and bustle of the house, and are perfect for a photography/art studio (currently used as such!) or guest/au pair quarters. This interior bedroom will be rented lightly furnished or unfurnished.
A staircase on the far left side of the house leads upstairs to the big and bright 2nd floor, with 4 bedrooms, 2 full bathrooms, and an office. There are two bedrooms that face the front of the house. One is extra large, with an attached sunroom, window seat, and two closets. The 2nd front-facing bedroom is the owner’s art studio, and is one of the bedrooms that will be only lightly furnished. It has amazing light and a white brick fireplace that matches the one downstairs. There is a smaller rear-facing bedroom with great light and a closet. The 2nd rear-facing bedroom is a primary bedroom suite, very spacious with a wall of built-in closets. The en suite bathroom has built-ins for linens, two sinks and medicine cabinets and a seating area. On the back wall is a door to the toilet and double wide standing shower. This primary bedroom suite is connected to a laundry area with stacked washer/dryer as well as a rear stairway that leads down to the pantry area off the kitchen downstairs.
On one side of the 2nd floor landing, between the bedrooms is an updated bathroom with deep tub and white subway tiles. On the opposite side of the landing is a cozy, bright office with built-in drawers and desk and gorgeous treetop views.
