A Neighborhood for Every Lifestyle
Charming Berkeley brown shingle with modern upgrades and classic period details. The main house (upper unit) boasts high ceilings, venetian plaster walls (in some rooms), updated windows (on main floor), radiant heat (on main level), solarium and a Mondrian inspired bathroom. The front sitting room has bay windows with sliding doors that open to an adjacent room, perfect for reading. The large dining room and updated kitchen both have French doors that open onto a large entertainment deck. The large level backyard is currently a blank canvas and allows for endless possibilities. The solarium is flooded with light and the perfect place for crafting or just hanging out. The two bonus rooms in the attic allow for flexible use of space. The lower level has a 1-bedroom unit with a large kitchen radiant heat and its’s own laundry. Upgrades since purchase include foundation replacement, roof replacement, solar installation and drainage improvements to mention a few. Large workshop space and garage is perfect for the homeowner who likes to tinker. Minutes to UCB, restaurants, entertainment, shopping, Trader Joes and the Saturday farmer’s Market in downtown Berkeley. This is a commuter’s paradise with easy access to BART, buses and the freeway.
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 street 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.
