Features

From the street, what’s immediately apparent is the charming façade of a typical 1920’s Berkeley Bungalow--but there’s so much more! This property has been creatively renovated and constructed to combine the best of the past, the convenience of the present and the vision for the future in all four units--which include eco-friendly features like double-paned windows, energy efficient appliances and tankless water heaters. This home is sited on Berkeley’s excellent Gourmet Getto location. In 1336 Unit A, you’ll be welcomed by the “typical” craftsman style living room featuring bay windows, polished hardwood floors and a cozy fireplace. Down the entry hall is a convenient powder room and laundry closet. At the end of the hall is the grand, beautifully designed great room which includes a kitchen, a dining and an entertainment area. The kitchen boasts a pantry and gorgeous charcoal wood cabinets providing tons of storage. The subtle grey and white quartz countertops, matching splash and farmhouse sink add style and sophistication, harmonizing perfectly with the stainless-steel appliances. The island bar seats four to six and includes a built-in microwave and deep drawers just right for pots and pans. The large deck is accessed from the dining and entertainment areas through two large sliding glass doors. Enjoy food from Cheese Board Bakery, Chez Paniesse, Epicurean garden, Whole Foods or Monterey Market. There is easy access to UC Berkeley, San Francisco, North or Central Berkeley Bart station and Live Oak park and Rose garden are close by.

 

Neighborhood


Berkeley’s renowned Gourmet Ghetto neighborhood wears its nickname proudly. The strip of Shattuck Avenue between Cedar and Vine streets is anchored by Alice Waters’ world-famous Chez Panisse Restaurant & Café, The Cheese Board Collective, and the original Peet’s Coffee & Tea, which have been neighborhood icons for decades. Simply put, the area is a laid-back mecca for those who want to eat and drink well. Homes range from well-preserved Victorians and traditional, large Berkeley brown-shingled houses to lovingly preserved Craftsmans and bungalows. The architecture is old and varied enough to be included on neighborhood walking tours conducted by the Berkeley Architectural Heritage Association. Proximity to the nearby Downtown Berkeley BART Station and the central shopping district makes the neighborhood highly walkable. Live Oak Park provides basketball courts, picnic areas, and a small, open-air theater that hosts children's plays and Shakespeare productions. On Walnut Street, Berkeley Art Center offers a lively series of exhibitions, art openings, and lectures.
