Glorious Views, 10 minutes to Berkeley, Yard, Kid Friendly in the East Bay

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. 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, is situated on the bottom floor: a cocoon perfect for sleeping! There’s also a full-sized Murphy Bed in the downstairs rec room (with privacy curtains) for guests and plenty of storage space. The other bedroom is furnished with a twin bed, a crib is also available upon request.

Washer, dryer, tankless hot water heater, ample off-street parking, high-speed Internet, 40” television, HUGE backyard: an additional lower area offers use of a 12’ trampoline (at your own risk).
