A Darling Duplex in Westbrae

Truly a rare offering, this duplex provides passive income while offering the benefits of living in a single-family home, all in the desirable Westbrea neighborhood of Berkeley. 1319A & B  Curtis Street are homes not to be missed. Located in a fantastic area, the vacant rear owner's home, Unit A, boasts three-bedrooms and two-baths and is move-in ready. The front home, Unit B, is a two-bed, one-bath and is occupied by a reliable tenant. With no adjoining walls in the living spaces between the two homes and a spacious back garden, living in Unit A feels luxuriously private while still providing steady rental income from the second home.

As you enter home A, you are welcomed by a charming entry nook that leads to an open floor plan space. Combining the living, dining room, and kitchen in one, it is the ideal place for hosting a get-together. With a stylish pendant over the dining area and the walls a relaxing blue, the space feels intimate and inviting. The generous chef's kitchen was recently updated, featuring modern appliances, stone countertops with a dining bar, and plenty of storage space. Towards the back of the kitchen, a glass door brings in natural light and allows you to access the darling deck, perfect for morning coffee. The primary suite makes up the left side of the house, for complete privacy. Featuring reading wall sconces flanking the bed, a generous walk-in closet, and a modern bathroom with dual vanity, large format floor tile, and shower, the ensuite provides a stylish retreat from the rest of the home. To the back of the house are the two additional bedrooms, one featuring a newer sliding glass door that leads out to a deck and back garden. Located next to both bedrooms, an updated bathroom which includes a shower-over-bath, pedestal sink, and built-in medicine cabinet. 

The large garden is a true oasis, with a dining and lounge patio space and a spacious garden area with heritage trees and new landscaping. It's the perfect place to entertain guests or simply relax and enjoy the California sun. Mirrored by both units, the one-car garages offer interior access to the kitchen and additional storage space. But the location of this property is truly ideal. Located in the Westbrae neighborhood, this home is perfectly positioned in the heart of Berkeley. Located just steps from Westbrae Biergarten and Berkeley Natural Grocery Company, the shops on Hopkins, the North Berkeley Bart station, and the incredible Monterey market are just minutes away. Add to that the wonderful Berkeley school system and you can easily see why 1319 Curtis is such a terrific opportunity.
