Built in 1912

Welcome home to this charming Craftsman cottage at the border of Berkeley and Albany. Come on in through the front gate to a garden bursting with blooms, songbirds, and the occasional butterfly. Step up the stairs to the private front porch perfect for whiling away an afternoon watching the world go by. Inside this 1912 home, you'll find vintage charm balanced with modern conveniences. Hardwood and cork flooring along with tall ceilings and period architectural accents, large windows welcoming natural light, and a beautiful 1930s Wedgewood stove add to the home's charm. New quartz countertops, breakfast bar, and backsplash, ample cabinet space, updated lighting and a newer furnace and water heater, combine to make it easy to come home. This home has two bedrooms with ample closet space, a full bath, and a small home office ideal for remote work or crafts. In the secluded park-like backyard, the fruit trees, planter boxes, and a large open area offer plenty of places to relax and play. The basement houses the convenient washer and dryer, along with extra storage. All this close to Whole Foods, REI, North Berkeley BART, the thriving restaurant scene of Gilman Avenue, commute corridors, and more. Come on by, and come home to Berkeley!
