Graceful and sunny 4 bedroom/2.5 bath Berkeley Traditional with sweeping Bay views, just up from the Marin Circle with easy access to Solano Avenue, the Gourmet Ghetto, and Tilden Park.
This 1920’s home sits away from the 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, and there are 4 bedrooms and 2 baths upstairs – over 2300 square feet in total.
Please note: There is a small house nestled far below the house that shares the side pathway from the street, and the owner keeps a small studio under the deck, used only occasionally. The main property doesn’t share any space with these units except the side pathway entrance.
A trellised wooden gate marks the entrance to the property off the street. You step inside a tree lined pathway that slopes down, past a flat front patio area, to a wide side porch and front door. Through the front door is a wide foyer, with the living room to your left, the kitchen and dining room on your right, and the staircase leading up to the second floor.
The formal living room is large, with original built-ins on one side and a stately rock fireplace (decorative) anchoring the opposite wall. There are two french doors that lead out to a huge rear balcony, as large as the living room, with sweeping views of treetops, San Francisco, and the Bay. The formal dining room has wood-paneled walls, another original built-in, and dramatic coffered ceilings, with large windows that look out to the front patio. You can access the spacious, updated kitchen either through the dining room or from the main foyer.
The kitchen has high ceilings and a large dining or office area at one end, with windows overlooking the front patio. There is plenty of cabinet and counter space for whipping up delicious meals, a deep sink with disposal, and updated gas stove, fridge, and dishwasher. A pantry and a half bath with charming blue tile is just off the kitchen, and a staircase leads down to a spacious laundry room with a washer/dryer, utility sink, more shelving, and a large area for storage or crafting.
The wide center staircase leads you up to a wide 2nd level landing the 2nd level, with entrances to all 4 bedrooms and both bathrooms. The two larger bedrooms look out over the Bay, with unbelievable views, plus large closets with built-in storage. On the opposite side are two smaller bedrooms with large windows overlooking the front patio. One has a lovely bay window with cozy window seating. Both upstairs bathrooms are newly updated, one with a standing shower and the other with a shower over tub and toilet. A deep linen closet and original wood built-in armoire add additional storage to the upstairs landing.
Fantastic location, Berkeley Hills but still close enough to walk to cafes and North Berkeley hot spots – the best of both worlds!
