Features

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!  

Neighborhood


Centered on Hopkins Street at the foot of the Berkeley Hills, this quiet, relaxed residential community consists of charming bungalows, California Craftsman homes, and English Tudors. Indian Rock, the largest example of the Northbrae rhyolite outcroppings in the neighborhood, is popular with climbers honing their skills. Nearby green spaces include three-acre Cedar-Rose Park and Terrace Park. For those working on home horticulture projects, Berkeley Horticultural Nursery on McGee Avenue and Westbrae Nursery on Gilman Street offer advice, seeds, plants, and gardening tools. Northbrae’s two-block long retail district may be small, but it is crammed with gourmet-food purveyors. It's possible to shop here like a European, going from store to store, purchasing everything you need for the week's dinner. Monterey Market (an institution for more than 50 years), Monterey Fish Market, Magnani Poultry, and Hopkins Street Bakery make Northbrae into a mecca for food lovers. Outdoor cafe Espresso Roma offers the opportunity to enjoy a latte in the glorious weather. Northbrae is within walking distance to the North Berkeley BART and the North Branch of the Berkeley Public Library. Designed by noted Bay Area architect Julia Morgan in the early 20th century, the latter building is one of the most stunning civic structures in Berkeley.
