Step back to 1889 with this elegant Victorian home. Enter into a living room with 12-foot ceilings and head to the dining room anchored by an exquisite fireplace. Also on this level a full bathroom and bedroom -could be used as a family room- that opens right into a sunny deck overlooking the yard. The cook’s kitchen includes marble countertops and high end appliances. Head up to 2nd story, where 2 bedrooms (one with a loft area) and a charming bathroom await. A beautiful cottage in the backyard could be used as an office/studio. Updates include custom-built double-glazed windows, newer roof, many electrical and plumbing upgrades as well as a retrofitted foundation. The wide lot allows for the beautiful gardens to surround the house creating a sense of calm and privacy. Fragrant roses, a large variety of young fruit trees, raised beds and gorgeous landscaping make this a true gardener’s paradise. Located in vibrant West Berkeley, within a few minutes to amenities and commuter bus to SF.
