Fresh touches bring new life to this Berkeley Hills Tudor. Set only a few blocks from the Rose Garden, this reinvigorated home captures the California design spirit while maintaining its original charm and character. Substantial updates were made to this home, including a refreshed open kitchen with new granite tile kitchen countertops, stainless steel appliances, maple floor, casual countertop seating and designer paint scheme. Also adding to its value are new plumbing fixtures, new hardware, new paint inside and out, a new French door, new front door, a partial new foundation, plus a refinished deck and front porch arbor. Updated systems include copper plumbing, a forced air heater and upgraded electrical service. Architecturally distinct from the street with triple front windows and steeply pitched roof, the home also features a new retaining wall and paver pathway with designer planter boxes and new landscaping. A new patio area in the backyard encourages outdoor entertaining in an extremely private setting with mature vegetation surrounding it. As you enter the home, pleasant peek-a- boo Bay views extend from the porch and front bedroom with vaulted ceilings, that could also make a great living room! The floorplan flows naturally in the kitchen/dining/living room concept with easy access to the rear yard. Three bedrooms give the homeowner flexibility, as one of the bedrooms could be a nice big living room or just a bedroom thanks to easily removable closet cabinetry. The home’s only bath offers an oversized bathtub with a marble vanity top and storage. A detached garage positioned at the rear of the property, which has been outfitted with electricity, fresh paint and windows, could be repurposed for an office, art studio, game room, or possible ADU, while a long driveway offers off-street parking. A quiet location close to UC Berkeley, Rose Garden, Cragmont School, Codornices Park, and as well as all the great shops and restaurants in the Gourmet Ghetto and on Solano Ave make this home a true must-see! The local and transbay bus lines run on Euclid and make getting around without a car really easy. Urban living at its best!
Perched above the city and offering the best panoramic views in the entire Bay Area, North Berkeley Hills is an incredibly peaceful residential neighborhood, yet not far from the hustle and bustle of the city’s more urban areas. Homes in the neighborhood are built in a variety of styles and feature spacious patio decks, manicured lawns and lushly landscaped gardens.
Depending on where you live, North Berkeley Hills residents can enjoy views of the San Francisco and Oakland skylines, the Golden Gate Bridge, Alcatraz Island, and Mount Tamalpais. For even more great views plus a variety of great outdoor activities, residents can take a short trip to nearby Tilden Regional Park. Park amenities vary between free and paid activities. Free activities available at TIlden Park include a beautiful botanical garden, the Little Farm, and nearly 40 miles of scenic hiking trails. For a small fee, the public can also swim at Lake Anza, take a spin on the Merry-Go-Round, or enjoy a round of golf at Tilden Park Golf Course.
Some residents in the southern part of North Berkeley Hills are within walking distance of the thriving retail district on Solano Avenue. Featuring a wide variety of stores, shops, and plenty of great restaurants, including:
Safeway Community Markets: Located at the southwest corner of Solano and Fresno Avenues, this is a great place to check off everything on your grocery list.
Noor & Sons Rug Gallery: Find handcrafted Oriental Rugs for your home, as well as rug cleaning and repair services.
Peet’s Coffee: It all started in Berkeley, and this location is ideal for your morning cup of coffee before you begin your commute.
Additionally, foodies who love a variety of cuisines are just a short walk or drive away from the infamous Gourmet Ghetto neighborhood.
Despite its elevated location, North Berkeley Hills is extremely transit-friendly. The Alameda-Contra Costa Transit District bus lines that serve the neighborhood drop residents at the Downtown Berkeley BART station for a quick commute to downtown San Francisco. Berkeley Hills residents who live near the western section of the neighborhood are less than one mile away from the heart of UC Berkeley, making it a great area for faculty and administrators to live.
