A refuge, a dream home, a Berkeley hideaway filled with light. This traditional shingled residence is entered through a formal foyer to the lovely living room surrounded by windows. There is a seamless indoor/outdoor flow, with a remodeled kitchen that opens to a wonderful dining room and right into the amazing backyard. This level also holds a bedroom, a full bath and a perfect office or bonus room. Upstairs is a spacious family room with peekaboo views of the Bay, a tiled bathroom and two more bedrooms under architectural ceilings, both opening to a deck over the rear garden. The backyard is exquisite — spend your evenings barbecuing, entertaining with friends or relaxing after a long day, while listening to the birds. The North Berkeley location could not be better just a short stroll to all the shops and restaurants on Shattuck Avenue, and close to AC Transit to San Francisco. Enjoy weekends at the nearby Rose Garden, or playing and picnicking at Codornices Park.
