:: Given the current state of our county and world, AndreaRentals will offer virtual tours of empty properties by request. We are happy to chat by phone and answer questions, collect and approve applications and hold them as pending, and anything else we can do to keep things moving via technology. Our goal is to do right by our clients and by the public at large. Stay safe out there. ::
This 1920’s home sits away from a quiet street, on a gentle slope with a bird’s eye view of the Bay. It has lovely vintage detailing, original hardwood floors, ample storage, and plenty of sunshine. The comfortable living, dining and kitchen space is downstairs, as well as 2 bedrooms and 1 full bath. The upstairs features a large office space with a en suite bedroom and bathroom – over 2000 square feet in total.
A landscaped front yard slopes up to a low set of front steps. The shady front porch looks out over the street, with the original front door with classic 20’s diamond leaded glass pattern that repeats throughout the lower level. Through the front door, the living room is to your left, the kitchen and dining room on your right, and a long hallway in front of you leads to the 2 bedroom rear bedrooms, hall bathroom, and staircase to the second floor.
The formal living room is large and bright, with built-in bookshelves flanking a large picture window overlooking the front yard, leaded glass doors that separate it from the foyer, and a decorative fireplace. Directly opposite the living room is the formal dining room, with another front-facing picture window and double doors that open into the long galley kitchen. The spacious kitchen can also be accessed through the center hallway.
The updated kitchen has double ovens and double sinks, plus 5 burner gas stove, pantry, dishwasher, and large refrigerator. At the back of the kitchen is a built-in bar seating and a glass door that leads out to the back deck and yard.
The two bedrooms and bathroom on this level are across the hall from the galley kitchen. Both bedrooms are large, with big windows and ample closets. The back bedroom overlooks the back garden, and the front bedroom has a wall of built-in bookshelves waiting to be filled! The downstairs bathroom has indigo hex tile and a shower over tub, and is centrally located at the end of the main hallway. There’s an original 20’s linen closet in the hallway, just across from the staircase that leads up to the 2nd level.
The 2nd level of the home has a master bedroom suite and office. It’s tucked in under the eaves above the rest of the house – a perfect peaceful getaway. The stairs lead to a bright and spacious office with built-in bookshelves and corner desk. The master bedroom is to the left of the office, above the downstairs bedrooms and is as large as both of them combined! There is an enormous walk-in closet, perfect for any shoe collector or just anyone who needs some extra storage. The master bathroom has double sinks and a lovely extra-large shower under a lofted skylight, as well as plenty of extra cabinets for linen and towels.
Great fenced rear yard, which is accessible from the kitchen as well as through a gate at the end of the long driveway. Off the kitchen is a corner wooden deck that steps down to a comfortable patio and yard, perfect for playing or outdoor dining. A raised veggie box is already in place, ready for your tomatoes and basil. French doors on the side of the garage open out to the garden, creating a great indoor/outdoor flow for toys, bikes, or art projects. The garage is at the end of the long driveway, and can be used to park a small car – or could be used as an art or yoga room. It’s bright and open, with glass doors leading into the rear yard.
Fantastic lower Berkeley Hills location – situated right between Live Oak Park and the Marin Circle. Just half a mile to the top of Solano Avenue and half a mile to the Gourmet Ghetto. Easy access to so many amazing shops and restaurants, as well as BART and the University.
