Perfect 2++br/2ba Brown-Shingle Craftsman in the heart of Rockridge
Charming, traditional single family home with sunny yard, graceful rooms with sunshine and high ceilings, and plenty of storage. It’s a lovely mix of period detail (crown molding, wainscotting, claw foot bathtub) and modern upgrades (dishwasher, gas range with griddle, custom window shades.) Unbeatable location – tucked into a tree-lined street just 2 blocks from Rockridge BART, Frog Park, and all the amazing shops and restaurants on College Avenue.
The home’s cozy front porch is on the left side of the house, and a vibrant red front door leads to the central foyer. On your immediate right is a sunny living room, lined with windows that look over the front of the home and anchored by a pretty white brick fireplace (decorative.) There is a spacious playroom or office off the living room, connected by glass french doors.
On the right of the central foyer is a formal dining room with a wall of windows and a glass door out to the rear patio. A 2nd door connects the dining room to the spacious galley kitchen, with stainless steel dishwasher, deep sink, and new gas range. The kitchen has two large countertops and large windows, perfect for entertaining and everyday meal prep. At the far end of the kitchen is a large, sunny breakfast area with patio doors out to the rear patio and flowering back garden. There is a full bathroom off the kitchen, with walk-in shower. Behind the central staircase is a door leading down to a large finished basement, with washer/dryer and tons of excellent storage.
The home’s central stairwell leads up to the 2nd floor landing, with a 2nd bathroom with generous clawfoot tub and two large, bright bedrooms under cozy dormer ceilings. The bedroom on the left is large – though the smaller of the two – with big windows, attic storage, and a deep closet. Across the landing is the primary bedroom, which is extra large: there’s a roomy bedroom with 2 closets connected to a wide sunroom lined with windows, perfect for a nursery, office, yoga room, or whatever you need.
Sweet, private backyard with lots of flowering shrubs. There’s a small deck off the dining room and kitchen that leads down to a brick patio and large planter box. It’s the perfect spot to drink some tea and tend some tomatoes!
Perfect location, just 2 blocks from College Avenue and Rockridge BART. Shopping is just blocks away plus bars, restaurants and grocery stores. Close to Trader Joe’s, Rockridge Market Hall, fine dining and boutique shops on College Avenue, close to Claremont Avenue and Temescal.
