Property description

Beautiful light filled brown shingle Arts and Crafts house located in one of Berkeley’s most elegant neighborhoods behind The Claremont Hotel and Spa. A five minute walk takes you to shops a great local restaurant, fresh coffee store, wine store, art gallery, and a relaxed neighborhood atmosphere.

This area is wonderful for walking, bird watching, enjoying the magnificent houses, plants, flowers and mature trees. We are an enjoyable fifteen minute walk to the University of California campus. A twenty minute walk to downtown Berkeley and BART subway station. We have a collection of books about Berkeley and the history of the area.

Our home is 102 years old and we have installed all new plumbing, forced air heating, electrical, gas, water, WIFI, foundation and much more.

This private home Does Not have a driveway and you must walk up and down a city stairway and paved trail. It is recommended for people who like to walk, enjoy nature and open to a unique experience. Parking is on the street and we walk up about 3/4 of a block to the house.

A game table is set up in the living room for your enjoyment and there is firewood set in the fireplace ready for lighting, remember to open the flue.

The living room has a comfortable new queen sofa with Amish made coffee table and a large stone fireplace. Original woodwork and windows face West to enjoy the Golden Gate Bridge and Sunset views. There are glass pocket doors between the dining room and living rooms for privacy.

Kitchen has all new stainless steel appliances with granite counter tops, cherry wood cabinets, hardwood floor, recessed lighting, bay window with orchids and a South facing view of the back yard.
All cooking and baking items are at hand as well as spices and teas. There is a small breakfast table which overlooks to the back yard and the bird bath.

Dining room has a table with two leaves to enlarge for 8 people. The hutch is original with built in glass doors and drawers. A window seat faces South and is a perfect place to curl up to read a great book, watch birds or day dream. The view of Mount Tamalpais is the best from this room as you sip coffee in the mornings.

Master Bedroom is very large with a queen size bed, vaulted ceiling, lots of light, windows facing South and East with a view of a well tended garden next door. We have two sitting chairs and coffee table for relaxing and viewing the 42' HDTV and DVD player.

Second bedroom is furnished with antiques. A full bed, marble top dresser, inlaid night table, full length mirror, curio cabinet and working treadle sewing machine create a cozy relaxed feeling.

The third bedroom is currently being used as an office with two wooden desks, comfortable leather chairs, lots of books and windows facing North and East. There is currently one single bed soon to be replaced by two singles / trundle bed. Great for kids.

Bathroom is in an Art Deco style with original Deco bathtub, pedestal sink and toilet set. Marble tiles surround the bathtub and floor with granite boarders. The floor is heated and the hardware fixtures are in polished nickle.

Front Porch faces West with stunning views of The Golden Gate Bridge, San Francisco, Marin Mountains, Angle Island, Alcatraz Island and beautiful ever changing water, sailboats and sunsets.
There is a stainless steel propane BBQ grill with tools for outdoor cooking.

We rent the top two floors and live downstairs with a separate entrance. We share the washer/dryer which is downstairs in our unit.

Enjoy the private yard with a wooden swing, bird bath, wind chimes, filtered views and lovely ambiance.

There is a local market/deli and large supermarket Safeway close by. Elmwood and Rockridge shopping districts are a quick drive or a nice long walk.
