Central Berkeley

Enter into the embrace of Berkeley's charming neighborhoods with this rarely available all-level three-bedroom, two-bathroom Craftsman home nestled in the heart of Central Berkeley.  As you step onto the welcoming front porch and pass through the solid wood front door, complete with a vintage peephole, you'll immediately sense the fusion of timeless elegance and modern convenience that defines this residence.
A sanctuary of warmth and intelligent design, this property has an open flow layout that seamlessly combines dining, living, and kitchen spaces, creating an atmosphere conducive to both relaxation and entertaining. The kitchen, a focal point of the home, features expansive counterspace, a central prep island, an eat-in high bar countertop, floating shelves, and stainless steel appliances, inviting culinary creativity and social interaction.
Softly filtered light gently bathes the interior through double-paned new windows, enhancing the beauty of the walnut stained hardwood floors that guide you through each inviting space. The primary bedroom, tucked away for privacy, offers a haven of natural light and garden views, providing a tranquil retreat at the end of each day.  Remodeled designer bathrooms, adorned with designer fixtures and finishes, exude luxury and sophistication, while custom high-efficiency closet systems and Emtek hardware add both style and functionality.
Outside, a lush garden oasis awaits, adorned with mature fruit trees, vibrant flowers, and raised vegetable and flower beds, providing a serene backdrop for outdoor relaxation and recreation.  The large entertainer's deck serves as an extension of the home's living space, perfect for al fresco dining, lounging, and hosting gatherings with friends and family. Additionally, multiple areas in the garden offer opportunities for quiet contemplation, napping in the hammock under the avocado trees, gardening, or engaging in outdoor activities such as barbecuing or bouncing on the trampoline.
A fully insulated, finished, and permitted detached studio, complete with vaulted ceilings, skylights, and French doors facing the garden, offers endless possibilities as a workspace, creative studio, or guest retreat.  Meanwhile, the garage, equipped with a workshop bench and wide wood swing doors, provides ample space for DIY projects and storage or parking for one car.
Further enhancing the appeal of this property are practical upgrades such as a new furnace, upgraded electrical system, and a long driveway capable of accommodating multiple vehicles or recreational vehicles like an Airstream.
Conveniently located with a biker's paradise score of 90 and a walk score of 84, this prime property offers easy access to public transportation, shopping, dining, and the vibrant cultural attractions of Berkeley. Whether you're seeking a peaceful sanctuary to call home or an inspiring space to cultivate your creativity, this Central Berkeley gem offers the epitome of luxury living in a coveted location.
