This charming bungalow in South Berkeley has been meticulously updated and maintained by its current owner and offers a great indoor–outdoor flow. The light and bright living room with a striking gas fireplace welcomes you into the contemporary residence. The layout offers privacy, with each of two bedrooms joined by its own bath.

Some of the upgrades include a new roof (2017), seismic retrofit, new HVAC system with integrated IQAIR purifier, thorough insulation & sealing, as well as BESO and sewer compliance In a convenient location with an easy commute, just a mile to Berkeley Bowl West, this home is ideally located just 2 blocks from the newly remodeled San Pablo Park’s incredible playground and tennis courts.
