This inviting traditional craftsman home is ideally located in the serene Northbrae neighborhood within easy reach of local markets, cafes, bakeries, nursery and more.
Pass through the sun dappled and landscaped front yard balanced with a decorative Maple tree to the nearly level-in portico entry, pillar lined with wisteria accents. The wide frame and panel door opens directly into the voluminous barrel-vaulted living room. Picture windows and a traditional brick faced wood-burning fireplace are the touchstones of this welcoming sala. Warm, white oak floors lead throughout the home. The formal dining room is framed by Juliet picture windows. A built-in hutch displays cultivated collections and barware with equal ease.
The recently updated kitchen is light and bright. The large skylight and picture window allow for natural light to pour over the luminous suite of stainless steel appliances. Classic marble counters, tile backsplash, chrome faucet and brushed cabinet pulls invite Chefs and guests to linger at the eat-in nook. The Bedrooms and closets are good sized and well-lit by windows overlooking the back yard. The bath has been updated with a new marble topped vanity with brushed drawer pulls, chrome fixture and timeless white hex tile floor.
Leading out from the kitchen over the elevated deck, the large West facing rear yard receives plentiful light. A Meyer lemon citrus, Persimmon and raised planting bed for gardening are already in place. A level durable turf yard is ready for active play and the detached garage has great potential as an ADU or Studio. The rear patio is perfect for alfresco dining and entertaining while watching sunsets linger into the evenings.
Spend weekdays exploring the immediate neighborhood highlights on Hopkins Street and weekends sampling the exceptional nearby amenities offered on Solano and North Shattuck Avenue. Minutes to shopping, restaurants and convenient to Tilden Park, North Berkeley BART and I-880.
Home to one of the most prestigious universities in the country, Berkeley offers the intellectual and cultural stimulation from its campus -- which is within walking distance of downtown. Many Berkeley neighborhoods were established in the 1920s, with quiet, tree-lined streets, brown-shingled homes, and lushly landscaped yards. In Thousand Oaks, the original developers preserved ancient oak trees and left rock outcroppings intact. Elmwood, with its thriving business district, remains one of the city’s most sought-after neighborhoods. In Claremont, the Claremont Hotel, a gleaming white Victorian-era landmark, has provided generations of Bay Area residents with a luxurious getaway.
Berkeley has long been at the forefront of culinary innovation. Locals flock to the original Peet’s Coffee & Tea location. For residents who like to savor their meals at home, small retail districts sprinkled throughout Berkeley allow them to shop like Europeans, going from store to store to purchase everything they need. Those in a hurry can always visit major grocery stores nearby.
Neighborhood green spaces abound throughout Berkeley, from small community gardens to the Berkeley Rose Garden -- which boasts more than 3,000 rose bushes. The gem of the area is 2,000-acre Tilden Regional Park, with its miles of biking and hiking trails and the naturally landscaped swimming hole at Lake Anza.
