Features

Location perfection!  From your door step, stroll on over to Berkeley gems like Monterey Market, Kermit Lynch Wines, Bartavelle Coffee Bar and the neighborhood Westbrae Biergarten or simply relax and play across the street at Cedar-Rose park.  When you need to go farther, leave the car at home as BART and several bus lines are just minutes away.  If you’re feeling a need for privacy, come home to your own serene backyard park, with expansive deck and lots of space for play, outdoor dining and entertaining.  Thoughtfully chosen drought-tolerant plants and efficient drip system along with mature trees make the yards low-maintenance and truly enchanting.

Suffused with natural light from south-facing windows, this sweet bungalow combines vintage elements with smart updates.  Supremely functional eat-in kitchen looks out onto the sunny front yard. Neat sparkly bathroom and two cozy bedrooms, one of which opens to back yard through beautiful french doors. Meticulously maintained, remodeled, and ready to move in.  Plans for a possible addition included.  An attached garage provides extra space with built in bike storage perfect for your 95 walk score. What could be easier?

Neighborhood


Northbrae

Centered on Hopkins Street at the foot of the Berkeley Hills, this quiet, relaxed residential community consists of charming bungalows, California Craftsman homes, and English Tudors. Indian Rock, the largest example of the Northbrae rhyolite outcroppings in the neighborhood, is popular with climbers honing their skills.
Nearby green spaces include three-acre Cedar-Rose Park and Terrace Park. For those working on home horticulture projects, Berkeley Horticultural Nursery on McGee Avenue and Westbrae Nursery on Gilman Street offer advice, seeds, plants, and gardening tools.
Northbrae’s two-block long retail district may be small, but it is crammed with gourmet-food purveyors. It's possible to shop here like a European, going from store to store, purchasing everything you need for the week's dinner. Monterey Market (an institution for more than 50 years), Monterey Fish Market, Magnani Poultry, and Hopkins Street Bakery make Northbrae into a mecca for food lovers. Outdoor cafe Espresso Roma offers the opportunity to enjoy a latte in the glorious weather.
Northbrae is within walking distance to the North Berkeley BART and the North Branch of the Berkeley Public Library. Designed by noted Bay Area architect Julia Morgan in the early 20th century, the latter building is one of the most stunning civic structures in Berkeley.
