The “Urban Farmhouse” at 1435 Berkeley Way has that mixture of period Craftsman and eclectic modern that brings everything together … everything to make a house a “home.”
Right away, you’re welcomed by Berkeley Way’s living room with large windows bringing in loads of light. The living room opens to the dining room with Craftsman built-ins and period fireplace creating just the right ambience for friend and family dinners. And for epicurean as well as “would be” cooks, the kitchen has been newly updated … with quartz countertops, stainless steel appliances, French door refrigerator and an open shelf pantry perfect for storing a wealth of spices and ingredients.
Three good-sized bedrooms surround the newly renovated primary bath with a coveted soaking tub, stacked subway tiles and Hans-Grohe fixtures. And for added options, there’s a half bath just off the pantry.
The sunny primary bedroom looks out on the large backyard and opens to the deck where you can enjoy morning coffee. But as typical with farmhouses, there’s more to this spread than that. Downstairs from the deck , there’s a ground floor guest room/office just right for having hanging out. In the large garden, there’s a separate studio cottage, perfect for office or privacy. The backyard centers around a large patio, just right for parties and get togethers.
And to expand your possibilities beyond that, there is 1,000 plus square feet of ground floor “possibility” space, ready to be developed into a workshop, artist studio or perhaps ADU.
In keeping with the urban side of its personality, Berkeley Way is just 2 blocks to North Berkeley BART … and within a couple blocks of Trader Joes, Target and tons of restaurants
Yes, it’s “down-home” Berkeley style.
This part of North Berkeley is a close knit neighborhood or mostly Craftsman and other styles of bungalows dating back to the 1910s. It's considered a "Walker's Paradise" by WalkScore ... close to parks, shops, restaurants, UC Berkeley ... and only 2 blocks to North Berkeley BART.
Ohlone Park and Dog Park, along with Berkeley Way Mini-Park are all within a couple blocks. And for groceries and housewares, there's Target and Trader Joes nearby. Within about 7 or 8 blocks, you're at the door of UC Berkeley, as well as Berkeley Rep and Theater Row, and tons of restaurants of every nationality.
Just west of Berkeley Way, Berkeley’s Fourth Street always has something fun to explore. Stay up to date with the latest iPhone or iPad with a visit to the Apple store, or find the best athleticwear for him or her at Lululemon. During your shopping adventure, feel free to stop into one of Fourth Street’s many restaurants, including Bette’s Oceanside Diner and Zuti.
By BART, you can be in San Francisco in about 10 to 15 minutes. By car, it's usually 30 minutes. And Interstate 80 is about a mile away, and that takes you all the way to New York. Who ever said, Berkeley wasn't the center of the Universe.
