Like a flower in bloom, iconic gourmet Berkeley is slowly re-opening and mouth-watering aromas are beginning to fill the air just blocks from your North Berkeley dream home. Rich in character and beauty, one can barely pass by without a double-take and a grin at this 1911 home reimagined.
With remote gated entry, you’ll be welcomed by an adorable front porch. In the evening, the custom LED house numbers with copper backing and the dual spectrum lighting casts a delightful glow over the mature Japanese Maple in the front yard.
With newly refinished hardwood floors and a professionally chosen exterior color palette your new home is gorgeous to the eye and completely move-in ready. Enter into the open living room and don’t miss the quaint reading nook. The morning light is wonderful here.
Both of the upstairs bedrooms have freshly lined cedar closets with efficient organization systems installed and the baths feature bluetooth ceiling mounted exhaust fan speakers so you can sing away in the shower to your heart’s content!
Original rustic built-ins in the dining room are a pleasant reminder of the era in which this home was born, a timeless feature in these well-built shingled homes.
With thoughtful attention to detail, you'll find a design that incorporates sophistication, charm and retro-chic fun. The “kitchen of smitten” can only make you smile. The chrome-legged dinette table and chairs convey with the sale; they are just perfect for the space. The “Big Chill” fridge and matching range were carefully selected to complete the absolute cutest kitchen in Berkeley.
Copper, “the healing metal,” adorns various exterior details from the gutters and downspouts to roof trim on the garage to the eyebrow awning over the backyard gate with the lion’s head door-knock. It is shining, unique accents like these that truly set this home apart.
Overlooking the enchanting garden, the private beautiful sunroom is an absolute treat. Solid bronze panels and bronze fine mesh add another layer of cool to this room. A respite from the workday, it’s a place to congregate with your social bubble at dusk to café lights that offer several options for mood lighting and the bonus space downstairs would make for an easy access cocktail bar.
A path gently winds through trees sprouting figs, apples and pluots. Blueberry, rosemary and colorful bougainvillea accent the garden complete with raised beds where you can pick your own herbs to compliment home cooking.
Potentially a future ADU, the detached garage could also serve as a personal home gym or art studio and still provide sheltered parking, though there’s plenty of driveway.
You’ll find many of the features of your new home can be controlled remotely, like the Ecobee thermostat. Using the Wemo app, exterior lighting both in the front and around the garage, as well as the café lights, can all be controlled from a distance.
With a 92 Walk Score and a 95 Bike Score, the darling of Vine Street has it all and then some.
