Modern Mediterranean In Berkeley

Thoughtfully modernized and updated this central Berkeley Mediterranean is in a location close to North Berkeley BART, and shopping, and is just perfection.  A charming facade reveals its original Mediterranean features such as the original arched wooden door and a large curved bay window, but once inside the semi-formal entryway, the newly reconfigured great room shows off the fresh style of this on-trend bungalow. Remodeled and redesigned in 2019, this Great Room style home features a large living room with brick fireplace and a modern built-in china cabinet in the dining area. The kitchen overlooks everything and has a grand waterfall island with bar seating perfect for entertaining. Quartz countertops, light cabinetry, custom Cafe appliances, and brass accents are a contemporary nod to the increasingly popular farmhouse style kitchen. Nearby is a guest powder room, and a fresh full bath with a subway tiled shower-over-tub and custom vanity. One of the three bedrooms finishes off the main level.

Moving upstairs, two additional comfortably sized bedrooms await. Below, a bonus room is ready for your vision. With glass doors out to the garden, this functions great as a family room and even has laundry and a convenient wet bar with a utility sink. The fully fenced yard has been completed with artificial grass and has a prodigious lemon tree. A large wooden deck offers the ideal spot for outdoor dining and has built-in planter boxes to turn your vegetable garden dreams into a reality. Off-street parking is available in the detached garage, easily accessible via an automatic remote. Updated by its current owners, this home features newer systems including electrical subpanel, almost all new wiring, new recessed lighting, almost all new windows, new smart electrical switches, newer high efficiency heater and more. Just blocks from University Ave, Berkeley High, and Strawberry Creek Park, all of Berkeley’s conveniences are close by. Welcome home.
