Located on a coveted block in the Northbrae neighborhood of Berkeley, this timeless 1921 Craftsman evokes feelings of the elegance of a bygone era. A large, inviting front porch leads into the light-filled living room that features a fireplace with original hand-painted tiles, hardwood floors, and leaded glass bookcases. Off of the living room is the dining room, featuring an original and unique light fixture that epitomizes the classic design and art deco style of the 1920’s. Three spacious bedrooms and two baths, one with original hex tile flooring, are also on the main level. From the dining room enter the charming vintage kitchen with an eat-in nook. The afternoon sun pours through the windows, and the back door leads out to a sunny deck that overlooks the lush back yard.
The tastefully finished lower level, accessible from the interior as well as the exterior, features a living area, one bedroom and one bathroom, perfect for out of town guests or as a home office space. There is a separate washer/dryer cleverly hidden away in a cabinet, and the bathroom floor has radiant heat. The door to the back yard allows guests their own level-in private entry.
In the back yard is a beautiful array of unique native plants and flowers, and a graceful magnolia tree offering shade for the patio, perfect for outdoor entertaining and relaxation.
A sunlit studio cottage completes this incredible property – perfect for use as a home office, creating art, exercising, or a quiet retreat. With a skylight and windows looking out to the yard, it offers so many possibilities for use or development.
Close to the historic Monterey Market and wonderful Hopkins Street shops, and not far from Solano Avenue shopping and BART, you will find so much to love about living here!
