About

This serene, spacious home in a quiet and desirable neighborhood of the Berkeley Hills has three to four bedrooms, three and a half bathrooms, and a sparkling new kitchen. Large windows bring in lots of light and views of mature trees. A wide, gracious entryway opens to a large living room, with a baby-grand piano, on one side and a formal dining room on the other. The emerald-gold kitchen is fully renovated with brand new appliances and a breakfast nook, and leads to a new half bathroom. Upstairs, there are two large main bedrooms, each with a walk-in closet and a sunroom with big windows. The parents’ bedroom features a king sized bed and an art/music studio in the sunroom (a harp, guitar, violin, and lute could be available for your music). The nursery bedroom is set up for three children, with twin bunk beds and another twin bed, and the sunroom is a toy/playroom. A large, gorgeous new bathroom and a new washer/dryer are between the bedrooms. Downstairs, there is a spacious bedroom we use for guests and in-laws, with a king-sized bed and a futon couch that can become a double bed. The room is bright with windows on three sides, but still very private. The small but ensuite bathroom is a jewel-box, with Carrara marble tile, a glass shower, and new fixtures. Another full bathroom, also recently renewed, is in the downstairs hall. The other bedroom downstairs we have converted into an office and movie room, with an overhead projector and a big screen, and the couch opens to become a queen-sized bed. Our house is walking distance to UC Berkeley campus through a beautiful residential neighborhood, passing Codornices Park and the Berkeley Rose Garden on the way. We are also steps from a bus stop going straight to the campus and downtown Berkeley BART. We’re also quite close to excellent restaurants, the shops of Solano Avenue, and other parks such as Cragmont Park, Indian Rock Park, and Tilden Regional Park. We have two electric bicycles (it is hilly!) and a minivan available with negotiation to help you explore beautiful Berkeley and the Bay Area.
