If you’ve been looking for a home with architectural integrity, original character, and modern upgrades on a tranquil street in a central Berkeley location, you’ve found it!  Light pours through the oversized windows and fills every inch of space between the original Douglas fir floors and the nearly 10’ tall ceilings. The layout is gracious with a smooth transition from the welcoming front porch, through the entry foyer into the elegant living and dining areas. The airy kitchen is perfect for casual gatherings and camaraderie while cooking, with sliding doors opening to the deck and the sunny fenced yard. The main floor also has 2 bedrooms and a full bath.

The lightfest continues on the 2nd floor, with skylit vaulted ceilings and a roof deck! The central space makes a wonderful family room, with 2 adjoining bedrooms and a stylishly updated bathroom. Additionally, there is an enormous 6’ tall basement** for mega-storage, hobby space, and laundry.

The famed Berkeley Bowl is a few blocks away, and the proximity to BART can’t be beat. Rated by WalkScore® as both a “Walker’s and Biker’s Paradise”!
