Property Description

Vibrant South Berkeley Victorian. Originally built circa 1898, this charming home was literally lifted into the air in 2014, and a whole new downstairs & new foundation were added. Now with 3 bedrooms & 2.5 baths, it blends the character & whimsy of the original, with the advantage of modern upgrades. Radiant heat, a tankless water heater, dual-pane windows, recessed lighting, updated bathrooms, & other improvements were made to create this 21st century home.  Much of the style of the original remains, including fish scale siding, an oeil-de-boeuf window in the attic & tall ceilings. Traditional floor plan with formal entryway, living room with bay windows, formal dining room, & hardwood floors throughout. The bright and spacious kitchen with quartz counters and stainless steel appliances adjoins the family room, and opens out through French doors to the big sunny deck and beautiful garden. Plus, huge attic/storage area. 2 blocks to Ashby BART, 3 blocks to Berkeley Bowl, WalkScore 92!
