A Life Near the Best of Berkeley...
This enchanting 2BD/1BA 925 sq ft home in the heart of Central Berkeley features hardwood floors, hand-crafted oak kitchen cabinets, sun washed rooms, and an enclosed mudroom. Modern conveniences such as the fully renovated kitchen, updated bath, and double-pane windows are tastefully intertwined with beautifully antiquated period glass doorknobs and antique light fixtures exhibiting intricate carved detailing. The primary bedroom contains a walk-in closet with a separate entrance from the hallway and access to additional attic storage. On the rear porch an outdoor closet reveals a stackable front loader GE washer/dryer. Solar panels on the roof can be used to offset electricity costs. The rear yard is semi-enclosed with a fence for privacy and enjoys several rose bushes, a Meyer lemon, peach, and plumb trees, and a single-car garage. A rock wall planter area and afternoon sun provide the perfect space for an organic herb garden while the front yard also offers a suitable spot for a small vegetable garden or colorful flowers alongside the existing orange tree. Several flowering lavender bushes greet you with a fragrant aroma as you enter the front gate.
A plethora of delightful shops and delectable restaurants on Solano Avenue and North Shattuck (known as a gourmand’s haven) are a short drive away. The home is in close proximity to North Berkeley BART and minutes from major highways, making for an easy commute. Top-rated Berkeley schools are located nearby.
With easy access to public transportation and Interstate 80 and many amenities within walking distance, Central Berkeley is one of the city’s most convenient neighborhoods.
Central Berkeley residents are a short stroll away from the North Berkeley BART station on Sacramento Street or the Downtown Berkeley BART station on Shattuck Avenue, convenient for those who work in San Francisco. University Avenue, the neighborhood’s main east-to-west thoroughfare, leads directly to Interstate 80. University Avenue is also home to numerous restaurants -- serving all types of cuisine -- as well as other businesses.
Homes in the neighborhood sit on quiet, tree-lined streets and range from modest bungalows and cottages to larger, custom-built properties. Families enjoy Strawberry Creek Park, which offers a playground, tennis and basketball courts, soccer fields, and a picnic area. Other outdoor recreation spots in the neighborhood include Presentation Park, Cedar-Rose Park, and Berkeley Way Mini-Park.
