On an awesome block, close to cafes, restaurants and shopping, this is what you could call a Next-Gen home. Use it as a single family 3 bed/2bath, or as a 2/1 with a separate unit upstairs to generate extra income or host your parents or friends. The versatile floor plan lends itself to many configurations. Upon walking in, you will be greeted by Craftsman details, built-ins, and open floor plan. This level includes a living room, two spacious bedrooms, one bath, dining room, kitchen, and a mud room that opens to an expansive deck and backyard. Upstairs, the charming studio apartment has a full kitchen and bath and amazing light. The backyard is a true paradise. It features a zen garden, hot tub, lush lawn, play structure, multi-level deck, mature fig tree, workshop (or storage) and an art studio. Convenient location close to Berkeley Bowl West, Caffe Chiave, Longbranch, San Pablo Park and other amenities, great freeway access, and near multiple transportation options.
