This magical Northside home is the perfect blend of a traditional Berkeley home with all of the modern updates to make it completely livable. It is ideally situated within walking distance to the UC Berkeley campus, yet sufficiently tucked away from student housing for quiet privacy and filtered San Francisco bay views. It maintains its old-world charm and character with gleaming hardwood floors, rich wood trim and custom built-in cabinets, but the modern kitchen and bathroom, dual pane windows, solar panels, tankless water heater and structural updating make it ready for the 21st century.
The kitchen has been remodeled and modernized with sleek stainless steel appliances, custom cabinetry, and Quartz countertops. All appliances are by Gaggenau and include an electric cooktop and island ventilation hood, built-in microwave and oven, built-in undercounter refrigerator and freezer drawers, and dishwasher.
The upstairs bathroom has also been remodeled from top to bottom and to use the word “spa-like” to describe it would not be inappropriate.
Two spacious bedrooms, a living room, a formal dining room, and a bonus room perfect for a comfy office space complete the top floor. Walk downstairs and you’ll find another bedroom and half bathroom, a wine cellar and a generous basement space with laundry area, a work bench, and tons of storage. There is also a one-car garage.
Rarely do Berkeley homes put such a beautiful strong foot forward; this one is just waiting for you to say yes to being its next dance partner
