Surrounded by magnificent greenery, mature plants and expert landscaping, and set back from the street for maximum privacy, this home is a gardener's paradise. Enter through a few steps to a sunny porch, and right to your left find a convenient home office with French doors that open to the Flower Garden.The light throughout the house is magical and fills in the dining and living room that opens to a wraparound deck, a perfect extension to the living areas of the house. All on the same level you will find two bedrooms, a bright bathroom with wood detailing and the recently remodeled kitchen with custom cabinets and plenty of pantry space. Outside, the charming exterior studio is currently being used as a gym and a second home office.The backyard is the piece de resistance of this home; every area has a purpose: play, dine, lounge, or simply garden. There are fruit trees, vegetable producing gardens and many amazing plants. Storage abounds throughout the interior of the house, with many spacious closets, and outside, where the front of the garage is a perfect place for your bikes - or your workshop. The location is exceptional, a few blocks to North Berkeley BART, Monterey Market, and many stores, restaurants and cafes of the Gourmet Area.
