In the heart of the East Bay, this location reaches all of our favorite neighborhoods. Located in South Berkeley at the edge of the Elmwood, it also benefits from the amenities of Bushrod, Temescal, and Rockridge. Just around the corner, one can find Berkeley Bowl, Whole Foods, great restaurants, and the Starry Plough. It’s a quiet, tree-lined street near everything.
The property includes two houses on one impeccably landscaped level lot. The front house is a beautifully appointed 1923 Foursquare style home with wood clapboard siding and a wide front porch. The inside is loaded with Craftsman details: clicker brick fireplace, wood wainscotting, built-in cabinets and benches, coved ceilings and more. The front house has a gourmet kitchen, a formal dining room, and a grand living room. This structure has 3 bedrooms and 1.5 baths.
The back house is newer construction (>1950). It also has a fireplace and two full bedrooms. It has a nearly level entry and its own private patio.
The property is excellent for the “sandwich generation” with room for parents or returning kids alike. It is also great for anyone who just wants the extra income from a second completely separate dwelling.
The yard is spectacular and features many specimen succulents and gorgeous dogwood trees. There are fruit trees and flowers. The yard is verdant and lush, but what makes the property even greener are the owned solar panels and electric car charging station.
