Features

Old world charm and modern living come together in this 1924 craftsman.

There's the old: traditional craftsman details like hardwood floors, built ins, the fireplace, original wooden doors with glass handled knobs, and douglas firs.  Repurposed fence boards and barn windows have been turned into the artist / potting studio, and the oak leaves from grandma's dining table have been turned into the breakfast nook.

There's the new: skylights, solar panels, on demand hot water, solar tubes and a fully remodeled kitchen.  Tile, cabinets and appliances in the kitchen are all brand new, the Blue Star stove is a level-top 6-burner.  

There's the farm: Raised beds are filled with vegetables, teas and spices too numerous to name.  Apple, apricot, fig, lemon, lime, mandarin orange, red currant, blueberries and pear trees make for a great harvest.  The chicken coop, worm farm, and beehive are ready and waiting for new inhabitants.  

And there's potential: Light and warmth from the yard’s southern exposure fill the sun room.  The basement runs the full length of the home and the artist / potting studio leaves lots of flex space up for grabs.

 

Neighborhood


Many Berkeley neighborhoods were established in the 1920s, with quiet, tree-lined streets, craftsman homes, and lushly landscaped yards. This area is no exception, developing quickly after a passenger stop for the Santa Fe railway was opened on Sacramento Avenue in 1912. The old railroad right of way is still present and hosts a number of informal community greenways as well as the Spiral Gardens Community Food Project.  Other nearby open spaces include San Pablo Park, with play structures, tennis and basketball courts, baseball and other playing fields. Aquatic Park, the Berkeley Marina and the Bay trail are just a short bike ride away. Berkeley has long been at the forefront of culinary diversity.  Foodie gems you will find here include: Breads Of India, The Homemade Cafe, Mehak Indian Cuisine, Kaffa Ethiopian (Vegan), Smoke BBQ, Cafe Trieste, Le Pho, and Moxi Beer Garden to name a few.  For residents who like to savor their meals at home there is Berkeley Bowl West and a number of local farmers markets.  An express transbay bus travels Sacramento Avenue and the Ashby BART is a short walk or bike ride.  Whether catching a play at the Berkeley Rep or Shotgun Players, hearing a concert at Freight and Salvage or the Jazz School, a dance performance at Zellerbach, or seeing a movie at BAMPFA, local intellectual and cultural stimulation abounds.
