10 minutes to Berkeley, Views, Yard, Kid Friendly

Enjoy split-level living with stunning sunsets over Mt. Tamalpais and beautiful morning sunlight flooding the vaulted gourmet kitchen. This airy home offers multiple spaces to congregate, relax, or individuate. It is situated in an ideal location: midway between glorious Tilden Park and a vibrant transit and commercial corridor.

The kitchen features a vaulted ceiling and built-in breakfast nook, newer appliances, filtered water/ice, split oven, and 5-burner stovetop. The main floor has a spacious living room (with a 9’ window overlooking the western sky and San Francisco Bay) and dining room with French doors leading to a deck perched above the irrigated and landscaped backyard.

Up just a few stairs you’ll find a bedroom with an organic queen mattress and a full bathroom. Above, the large, finished attic has been converted into a kid’s zone, with small furniture, books, toys, and activities for little ones (this room has also been used as an extra bedroom in the past).

Downstairs from the kitchen leads to more open space, 2 additional bedrooms, a laundry room, and another recently added full bathroom. The master bathroom has a huge walk-in shower with three showerheads, tiled floor, bidet, ample built-in closet space, and LED lighting. The Master Bedroom, with a King-sized European Sleepworks organic mattress and toddler bed (this can be removed if needed), is situated on the very bottom floor: a cocoon perfect for sleeping! There’s also a full-sized Murphy Bed in the downstairs rec room for guests and plenty of space for a man-cave or storage area for bikes and camping gear. The other bedroom is furnished with a twin bed, but a crib is also available if needed.

Washer, dryer, tankless hot water heater, ample off-street parking, high-speed Internet, 40” LG SmartTV, HUGE backyard: an additional lower area offers use of a 12’ trampoline and a tree that’s big enough to hang a swing from.

Ideal location: 15-20 minutes from UC Berkeley, 25 minutes to SF (without traffic!), 1.3 miles from El Cerrito Plaza BART Station, easy access to Oakland, Marin County, and Wildcat Canyon and Tilden Park.

No pets & no smoking. Non-toxic cleaning supplies provided.

Crib with organic mattress available upon request.
