Ideally located close to pretty much everything is this charming, 4 bedroom, 2-bathroom home. Built in 1909, this Berkeley beauty has been updated with modern conveniences (such as solar panels), and it retains wonderful period details, including beautiful hardwood floors, a freestanding brick fireplace and wood built-ins that are perfect for your book or art collections. A formal foyer leads to the open and spacious living/dining/kitchen areas, which just beg for entertaining — as does the lovely, fenced, decked backyard with built-in seating, accessed through French doors from the dining room. Also on this main level is a convenient, separate laundry room and a full bathroom. All four bedrooms are placed on the upper level for privacy, including the primary with its large closet. Closets, built-ins and storage abound! A remodeled tiled bathroom with skylight completes this space. This residence is steps to neighborhood favorites such as the Cheeseboard, Chez Panisse, Saul's, the original Peet's coffee and so much more. Just stroll up the street for a treasure trove of shopping and dining options. It also offers an easy commute, close to both buses and BART. This home is a convenient Berkeley oasis that celebrates both old and new.
