Sprawling 5br/4ba Craftsman home on desirable North Berkeley block, perfectly poised between Solano Avenue and the Gourmet Ghetto. Outfitted with solar panels and an EV charger, this home marries classic comfort with functional contemporary touches.
Enter through the custom old-growth redwood doors, inlaid with artist-crafted stained-glass windows. The entryway is open to the spacious, bright living room, and a curved staircase leads to the upper story of the home where the bedrooms are located. This roomy first floor is the heart of the home, with space to spread out and easy flow from one room to the next. The living room, central dining room, and huge sunlight-filled family are all along the right side of the home, connected with wide doorways. The living room has vaulted ceilings, built-in cabinetry, and a gorgeous decorative wood-burning stove. The dining area is big enough for a table for 12, and has more lovely built-ins. A spacious family room/den anchors the right back corner of the home, with sliding doors on two of the walls that lead to a wraparound deck, perfect for grilling and outdoor dining. Shuttered folding doors on the left hand side of the room, hide the washer, dryer, and additional closet space.
The sunny kitchen is along the left side of the home, connected to the dining room and den. It has a wide counter workspace that runs the length of the room, with a center sink and sunny window overlooking the side yard. Opposite the counter is the gas stove and handy floor to ceiling storage cabinets. The kitchen also has a counter-height dining nook, perfect for easy breakfasts or homework in the kitchen. Designed by Joyce Goldstein of Square One fame, the kitchen delights.
At the rear of the kitchen (off the den) is a half bathroom and the staircase that leads to the home’s lower level. The lower level has a large bedroom (or work-from-home office?) with sliding doors that lead to the sweet, sunny backyard with grassy lawn and large shade trees. This lower level also includes a full bathroom with a shower over tub.
The top level of the home has 4 bedrooms off the central hallway, plus 2 full bathrooms. The front two bedrooms are sunny and peaceful, with treetop views over the front yard. A full bathroom with skylight and tub is in the center of the hallway. Across from the bathroom is a 3rd bedroom with a large closet and sliding glass doors that connect it to the primary bedroom. The glass doorway has privacy shutters on each side, closing it off from the primary bedroom. The enormous primary bedroom is at the back of the house, with vaulted ceilings and private deck overlooking the yard. It has an ensuite bathroom with generous closet space. The bedroom itself has wraparound windows and stretches throughout the entire back half of the home, with enough room for a king sized bed and a den/office – or nursery, or craft room – any assortment of layouts!
The home has a separate garage and a generous, finished crawl-space for additional storage.
Yolo is a lovely tree-lined street in the lower Berkeley Hills, just minutes from Live Oak Park, Solano Avenue, the Gourmet Ghetto, the Berkeley Rose Garden and all the conveniences and delights North Berkeley has to offer.
