Berkeley, California, United States
This Mediterranean family home was renovated completely in 2001 by ourselves, a Berkeley family, for our own use, selecting quality finishes, arched windows and entryways, and using a fresco-type exterior finish. We added a new ground floor, later updating the master bathroom in 2018, which also features a claw foot tub. The ground floor has a handcrafted hardwood custom front door leading into a large 400 sqf great room with Brazilian Cherry wood floors throughout and arched windows on the west and south, entering into the Dining Room complete with antique walnut table for 8. The home is perfect for entertaining; the great room is enhanced by a southern-facing sunroom. The downstairs also features a small office room with a half bathroom. The kitchen is adjacent to the rear yard and features black stone countertops, stainless steel appliances and lots of cupboard space, with an open layout and room for a breakfast table, facing east for the morning sun. Upstairs open cathedral-style wide-stairwell leads to a Master BR suite with small reading/office area, open dressing room and full bathroom. The upstairs hallway has two linen closets, leading to three additional bedrooms that share a second full bathroom. The home is complete with crafted furnishings of teak and tropical hardwoods plus sofa, master queen bed (frame only), dining table and chairs. The kitchen has stainless steel appliances, and is equipped with basic kitchenware, microwave, large freezer and refrigerator, dishwasher, and garbage disposal. Cabinets above and below the counters provide lots of storage space for everyday kitchen essentials. Outside laundry is shared with the rear, detached studio (occupied by the owner),. The rear yard featured a large Redwood, Oak and Bay Tree, and the yards are separated by a custom-built redwood basketweave fence. The home is fully insulated with double pane windows, seismic reinforcement, an on-demand water heater and a central heating system. Included are all utilities (water, sewer, electrical, (solar)/gas, trash and internet) as well as monthly garden maintenance. Great neighborhood for easy walking and biking, access to shopping and farmer's markets, (Trader Joes, Berkeley Bowl), the city arts district, cinema and bookstores, library, parks and biking city bike trails, the San Francisco Bay trail waterfront and nearby Tilden Regional Park.
