Upgraded Charming Vintage Bungalow

On a wide yet quiet street, in one of Berkeley’s most sought-after neighborhoods, sits a vintage CA bungalow. A home like this only comes along every so often. Built in 1910, with every period detail of its time, this four-bed, one and one-half bath home maintains its charm from over a century ago. Thanks to a renovation in 2021, the residence now enjoys functional modern upgrades from its brand new foundation to the brand new roof while its vintage floor plan and details remain untouched.

With a large welcoming front porch, the entry flows right into the central main hall with living and dining rooms on either side. The formal living room is cozy with a large front window,  built-in bookshelves and period trim. The dining room has been completed with charming pendant lighting and enjoys a large built-in and wainscoting.

Recently updated, the kitchen features a new backsplash, crisp white quartz countertops, and new appliances.  Abundant cabinetry with original antique hardware adds appealing vintage nostalgia. With access to the deck, relish in the Bay Area’s flawless weather and invite the outdoors in year-round. A bedroom and charming half-bath finish the main level. Upstairs await the three remaining bedrooms, each unique in its own way. They share a full bath with contrasting black-and-white floor tile, a stylish vanity, and a subway tiled shower-over-tub. The primary suite is at the front of the home and is light filled and features a large closet. The middle bedroom has large windows and the rear bedroom is lovely with its garden view.

Situated on an oversized level lot, the backyard of this home is a child’s paradise. Complete with a refreshed playhouse, there are plenty of opportunities for imaginations to run wild. For the adults, there’s ample space for gardening and outdoor dining, plus the one-car detached garage offers opportunity for future development. With everything you could desire including Shattuck Avenue eateries, Berkeley campus, and Elmwood’s College Avenue, there’s much to love about 2227 Stuart. Welcome home.
