Lovely 2nd floor flat in a meticulously kept brown shingle triplex, filled with architectural details and built-ins, lovely natural light, redwood trim and beams, and original hardwood floors throughout. This gem is right across the street from Ohlone Park and just a short walk to central Berkeley/University Ave. Everything you need is right outside your door!
The front door is at the top of an exterior stairwell on the left of the house. You enter through the original wood front door into a large, graceful entryway and the main hallway that connects all the rooms in the flat. On the right, overlooking the street, is the spacious front bedroom with a built-in window seat and good-sized closet. Next to the bedroom is the large and sunny living room with gleaming floors, large windows (another with a built-in window seat,) recessed lighting and pin lights, and a nice-sized closet.
To the left of the entryway is a spacious kitchen, full of vintage details, custom built-ins, and tasteful modern upgrades. It has all new stainless steel appliances, gas range, built-in microwave, and a large sink with elegant goose-neck faucet and garbage disposal. There are redwood beams throughout, a built-in china cabinet, plus plenty of space for a dining room table and chairs to share a meal with your family or friends.
The bathroom has been fully updated, with modern vanity, double wide standing shower, bronze fixtures and white tile. The rear bedroom has a good natural light and would be perfect as a home office or art studio. It doesn’t have an interior closet.
The wide hallway has two closets, one near the living room and front bedroom for just storage, the other across from the kitchen is the in-unit laundry, combo washer/dryer.
UNBEATABLE location. Great for commuters: 5 minute walk to BART. 3 blocks from UC Berkeley & Trader Joe’s, quick walk to all the deliciousness of the Gourmet Ghetto and the fun times waiting in the Arts & Theater District. Just across the street from half-mile-long Ohlone Park. It has a walk score of 97 – pretty close to perfect!
This is the middle unit in a triplex. There is a tenant above, and the owner lives below on the ground floor. There is also an occupied house in the back. Owned by a responsive and respectful local landlord, and the community is friendly. This building is well-loved and it shows.
