Beautifully updated, architecturally, significant traditional with Dutch Colonial characteristics in one of Berkeley's best neighborhoods. This is a well designed floor plan with great proportions and wonderful detailing.
The main floor is perfect for entertaining or enjoying alone. Large, yet comfortable rooms, high ceilings and lots of windows provide an open outlook onto mature, established, low maintenance landscaping and a personal sized redwood grove. The second floor contains one large bedroom with en suite bath, two additional bedrooms and the master bedroom suite with sitting room and spa style bathroom. The third floor, not counted in the assessed square footage, is a huge art studio, great room or home office. The lower level, also not on tax records, is a huge partially finished basement area with wine cellar, laundry area, and plentiful room to store all the toys. A two car tandem garage rounds out the lower level.
The home is very conveniently located with the closest grocery stores are Low Carb Living, Amphora Nueva: Berkeley Olive Oil Works and Afikomen Judaica.
