Pretty mid-century 2br/1ba bungalow with vintage touches and enchanting front and back yard, perfectly situated between the nature of Tilden and the convenience of the Berkeley’s Gourmet Ghetto. Easy trip to Lawrence Berkeley Lab and UC Berkeley, and the nearby AC transit line makes for convenient commuting to San Francisco and BART.
This 1949 home is set back from the road, with a large front yard of mature trees and shrubs plus an off-street single car garage that creates a private, woodsy nook. The gently sloping, fully fenced front yard has raised planter beds with a built-in drip irrigation system.
The home itself is all on one level, with an open floor plan, original hardwood floors, and lovely wooded vistas from every room. From the front door, you step into a large living room/dining room, connected to the kitchen with a quartz countertop and bar seating. The spacious living room/dining room has the original working fireplace, large windows that look out over the side treetops, and doors out to the L-shaped deck that wraps around the rear of the house.
The charming kitchen has the original double Wedgewood stove, plus deep sink, dishwasher, and plenty of cabinet and counter space for cooking up big meals or hosting a party. French doors open the kitchen out to the rear deck, which runs along the back wall of the house, perfect for outdoor dining or grilling.
The two bedrooms are off the living area, separated by a super clean and quaint bathroom, with shower over tub and pedestal sink. Both bedrooms are good sized, with big closets and great light. The front bedroom overlooks the private front yard area, and the rear bedroom has french doors that open out to the rear deck.
From the rear deck, a set of stairs leads down to a lower level deck with the entrance to the laundry, workshop, and storage area, with new HE washer/dryer and plenty of dry storage for all your gear. A 2nd set of stairs takes you down to a magical brick patio strung with fairy lights, and a gently sloped rear yard that is every hide-and-seek player’s dream! A large lawn area surrounded by redwoods and other mature trees, tucked away from the neighbors yet right next door.
