Updated throughout honoring its original aesthetic, it boasts elements of detailing reflecting that era. The clinker brick fireplace in the formal dining room bordered by an Inglenook was replaced with a gas insert to offer energy efficiency & beauty. There are cushioned window seats, built-ins in the dining room, wainscoting, & coved ceilings; the living room bay window gives onto floral garden. The recently completely remodeled kitchen features granite countertops, dual-fuel range, hood vent, good storage & garden outlook.

During ten months of the year, the property is surrounded by lush gardens with attendant butterflies and birds. And the neighborhood boasts a strong association, giving it village-like feeling.

 

Neighborhood


South Berkeley

You can't get closer to the University of California, Berkeley campus than South Berkeley, the neighborhood originally developed in the 1860s by the school’s predecessor, the College of California. The latter institution may be long gone, but the large, spacious, brown-shingled homes along Allston, Bancroft, Channing, and Dwight ways remain. Densely populated, the neighborhood contains some of the city’s oldest homes.

South Berkeley is a mix of students, longtime residents, businesses, and homes. The major thoroughfares are Telegraph Avenue, Bancroft Way, and Alcatraz Avenue, where street vendors, bookstores, record shops, and inexpensive eateries cater to students. Nightlife is abundant, thanks to the proximity to campus, Zellerbach Hall, and Downtown Berkeley. Both the Ashby and Downtown Berkeley BART stations serve the neighborhood, as do a number of Alameda-Contra Costa Transit buses, making it a snap to get to downtown San Francisco, local airports, sports stadiums, and other locations in the Bay Area.
