Berkeley bungalow description

Welcome to our charming 95 year old bungalow. This home is perfect for a family vacation or a visiting professional. Easy access to everything! There is a variety of parks nearby. Shopping and dining are with-in a block. Bus lines to San Francisco and downtown Berkeley are a minutes walk. Our 3+2 has a modern, well appointed kitchen and laundry room. The bathrooms are also updated. The dining and living rooms are open and bright. The back yard offers seclusion while the front porch is great for people watching in this walk friendly neighborhood. You can even help your self to veggies and fruits from the garden side yard.
The neighborhood has three great eateries. A pizza place owned by past Chez Panisse employees offering local ingredients including wine and beer. They also have the best soft serve ice cream. The local pub has great beer offerings and often has live music in the evenings. Semifreddies is the local bakery offering lots of fresh breads, pastries, sandwiches and coffee drinks.
The local grocery is family owned and has a great butcher and wonderful fresh produce. You will find everything you need for a meal at this charming market. The circle also has a vet, salon, aesthetician, gym, shoe repair, chiropractor, ti chi/yoga studio and a place for kids art classes as well as renowned artists and photography studios. If you need more gift shop options a 15 minute walk will get you to Solano Ave with many shops and restaurants to choose from.

You can get to BART in a short drive or 20 minute walk and then the sky is the limit! San Francisco is only a half hour BART ride away. And the beautiful CAL campus is just ten minutes.

                  About the owner: Our family has lived in the Bay Area for the past ten years. We just recently moved from our cute Bungalow to a nearby neighborhood - but we wanted to keep the house because it is the perfect neighborhood to enjoy easy living in - we hope to grow old in this house. My husband and I are California natives. We grew up in Southern California but feel most at home in Nor Cal. We have a son in college at University of Washington ,a son in High school and a daughter in grade school.

                  Why the Owner Chose Berkeley:
                  We bought this property because of the convenience and charm of the neighborhood. I love being able to walk to the coffee shop. Our two favorite breakfast restaurants are beautiful ten minute away. A delicious dinner is just around the corner and the grocery store is great. Living in this house and neighborhood is EASY! It is the perfect hub for a traveler, a busy professional or a family!
