Artistically remodeled bungalow features 3 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, an office and a family room with French doors to a lovely, well-loved backyard garden. Located in a very walk and bike friendly neighborhood and close to many of Berkeley's favorite destinations.
Built in 1926, this home started as an iconic 2-bedroom, 1-bath Craftsman-style Berkeley bungalow, with many period details including a covered front entrance porch, bay window with a window seat, hardwood floors, arches dividing the main rooms, and an artistically tiled fireplace in the living room with built-in wood cabinets on both sides. In 2006, the current owners expanded and modernized the home, while preserving the orginal details and repeating its style in the large addition. The kitchen was elegantly remodeled in the same year.
With the two new levels of living space at the back of the house, it is now a bright and airy 3-bedroom, 2-bath home with fine 21st-century amenities including skylights, dual-pane windows, and solar panels. The upper level is ideal for use as a spacious primary bedroom suite, and has built-in wood drawers, a skylight, and a beautifully tiled full bath. The lower level consists of a cozy family room plus a small office space. There are two French doors leading out of this level to the beautifully landscaped backyard graced by native plants, roses and fruit trees.
Steps to San Pablo Playground and Tennis Courts, Vital Vittles Bakery, 900 Grayson Cafe, East Bay Nursery, Spiral Gardens, and close to a rich variety of restaurants, cafes, and stores including Berkeley Bowl. Just a 7 minute bike ride to Ashby BART.
