Pretty two bed, one bath detached condo tucked away on a tranquil street in the ever-evolving Westbrae neighborhood of Berkeley. Recently painted with a neatly enclosed yard and statuesque mature maple tree at the entrance. Walkway and sitting porch welcome you to this pleasant abode.
Open floor plan flows to sunny living room which continues nicely into the adjoining dining area. Hardwood floors and large windows are perfectly accented with an original built-in cabinet and contemporary lighting. A great aesthetic combination, and wonderful spot for entertaining.
There are two sizable bedrooms with hardwood floors, unique light fixtures and amply-sized closets.
The kitchen features newer wooden cabinet doors, granite countertops, designer tiled backsplash and undermount stainless steel sink. Plus, tiled floor, new stove, new refrigerator (2019) and dishwasher. Adjacent laundry room has newer stackable washer and dryer and a rear door with backyard and detached garage access. Detached shared garage offers plenty of room for bikes and gear storage.
Full bath was recently upgraded and offers custom, built-in shelving, allowing for additional storage. Pedestal sink, tiled floor, large medicine cabinet and a tiled shower-over-tub with glass doors creates a little bit of luxury.
Green upgrades abound, including: updated electrical, solar panels, dual-pane windows throughout, insulated attic and Ducoterra Infrared electric heating panels – silent and super energy efficient.
This lovely neighborhood makes for a tranquil setting despite being adjacent to so many new and established shops, restaurant and grocery options. Whole Foods Market, REI, and Tokyo Fish Market are all close by. A super variety of restaurants and coffee shops include Casa Latina, Gilman Brewery, Kiku, Philz coffee, Fieldwork Brewing Company and Picante. Ohlone Greenway and North Berkeley BART aren’t far, nor are Downtown Berkeley and freeways that take you to San Francisco, Downtown Oakland, Emeryville and all over The Bay.
