Searching for a stylish Craftsman-style bungalow in a desirable Berkeley location? Discover this extensively updated and well-designed residence in the heart of Poet’s Corner. Expect impeccable touches throughout the 2,090 sq ft open-concept layout where you’ll enjoy plenty of space to entertain, unwind and enjoy. Lush landscaping and mature trees frame the south and west-facing porch where you can greet passing neighbors as you sip your morning coffee or read a book.
Expansive windows bathe the interior in an abundance of natural light to accentuate a stunning blend of gleaming wood flooring cascading throughout. Cove ceilings rise above the living room, where the rebuilt wood-burning fireplace is complemented by built-in storage and stained-glass windows. Effortlessly flow into the dining area or enjoy more informal meals in the breakfast area as you take in the outdoor vistas. Indulge the home chef in the kitchen brimming with chic character. Soapstone countertops perfectly pair with white cabinetry and a tiled backsplash to showcase stainless steel appliances along with built-in shelving for additional storage.
For your convenience, two out of the three sunlit and comfortable private retreats are suites, including the primary bedroom suite with exposed wood-beam ceilings that add a striking detail to the space. Stylish tile work is on display in all three full baths, one with encaustic tiles flooring. Plus, two baths come with in-floor heating to add comfort as you relax after a tiring day in the city. Stylized ceilings extend into the family room where a neutral color palette and dramatic, dramatic Walker Zanger porcelain wood flooring create a tranquil ambiance. It’s sure to be a favorite spot for gathering or enjoying movie nights, plus it offers direct outdoor access.
A large deck with multiple seating areas is adorned with mature landscaping to create the ideal setting for outdoor entertaining. You’ll have ample room to host weekend cookouts, dine al fresco and enjoy indoor-outdoor living. The home gardener will delight in three vegetable beds available to plant and harvest produce directly from your newly fenced-in backyard. Treat yourself to additional new features, including the freshly painted exterior, updated electrical and plumbing throughout, electrical upgrades in the detached garage, and an on-demand water heater. Convenience is at the tip of your fingers as this must-have residence is mere moments from the North Berkeley BART and Berkeley’s Fourth Street Shopping District for dining, shopping, and nightlife. An upgraded living awaits, so come for a tour before someone else does!
