Located on a fabulous extra-wide street in the heart of the Elmwood, this exquisite 1925 home features wonderful period details throughout and a tasteful addition of an upstairs master suite and office aligned with the home’s original Craftsman features designed by well-known Berkeley architect, Gary Earl Parsons.
The expansive living room is perfect for entertaining, whether you’re hosting a small gathering or a large event. Both the living room and the adjoining dining room feature Australian gumwood wainscoting and built-ins, including a curio with original beveled glass. Beautiful hardwood floors grace the entire first floor of the home, including the completely renovated kitchen, family room, and two bedrooms. The full bath adjacent to the bedrooms and the half bath off the kitchen/pantry area include beadboard and other period details.
Upstairs you’ll find a gorgeous master retreat and office, both featuring built-in cherry cabinetry and bookshelves. The master suite includes a dramatic roof-line ceiling together with beautiful arched windows along with a spacious walk-in closet. With a double vanity, cherry cabinets for ample storage, a walk-in shower, and a separate soaking tub, the master bath is accessible both from the master bedroom and the upstairs hallway. Two perfectly placed skylights keep the hallway and bathroom drenched in natural light.
The rear deck attached to the house includes a trellis adorned with mature climbing roses. There is also a separate deck in the yard perfect for down-time or entertaining. The lower level of the house features ample storage space, a separate bonus room, and a laundry area.
Situated in the prized Elmwood neighborhood just a short block from College Avenue shops and restaurants, you’ll rarely need your car to run errands. When you do, Highways 13 and 24 are minutes away, and both Ashby and Rockridge BART stations are close by. Don’t miss your opportunity to purchase a great property in one of Berkeley’s most sought-after neighborhoods!
