Down a brick path, behind a lovely wrought-iron gate lives this stately Mediterranean with endless views that will take your breath away. There is space for everyone and everything in the 5-bedroom, 3.5-bath home, which offers vintage details in every room, including several fireplaces and numerous built-ins, as well as top-of-the-line upgrades, including extensive foundation/drainage work and a new Tesla roof.
The main level’s spacious entryway leads to a formal dining room and comfortable living room, with its oversized windows and glass doors to the large deck. This outdoor aerie has built-in seating all around — the perfect place to take in spectacular views of three bridges. Also on this level is the updated, eat-in kitchen with gleaming marble counters, a cool wallpapered powder room and internal access to the two-car garage.
Up the curved wood staircase are four nicely sized bedrooms and two bathrooms with vintage tiling. In the lovely primary suite, you can wake up to incredible views without even lifting your head from your pillow.
The ground floor features a bedroom with a full bath and separate entrance — perfect for guests, an office, in-laws or an au pair — plus a large family room, stylish bar, wine cellar, laundry room and plenty of storage.
The yard is populated by mature trees, bricked and terraced planting beds, and space for the next owner to create an al fresco oasis in the hills.
This residence is mere minutes from everything you want to do in Berkeley. Tilden Park is steps away, and a quick drive down the hill to North Berkeley brings endless social, dining and shopping options.
