This classically styled English Tudor home in the Berkeley hills is one that offers so much appeal in terms of design, quality, and charm.  Located at 17 Spruce Street, it features a very pleasing Bay area view, and a welcoming ambiance.  This two story  home has 4 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms, and an attached two car garage.  

The living room has many of the desirable features of the Tudor design.  Note the cathedral beamed ceiling with its graceful arch, the roomy brick fireplace, and random plank hardwood floors.  A large centrally located window brings in light and views from outside.  


Another view of the living room reveals two very desirable glass pane French doors that open onto an adjacent family room.


 A bank of windows invite light into this family room, and leaves it awash with warmth and charm.  The extremely flexible floor plan allows other uses for the room, one which could be a large office space, or perhaps a media room.  


 A different view reveals the desirable skylight overhead, and roomy storage space available just under, and adjacent to, the stairs from the nearby living room.

Close by, and, as expected in a home of this quality, there is a very desirable formal dining room with generous windows, two of which open to the home's patio and gardens.  

One of the major assets of the home is the fact that the kitchen has been updated to meet the needs of either indoor or outdoor entertaining, or, if preferred, a more formal dining  service.  This kitchen, with its cheerful tile floors has excellent appliances, and an roomy working counter just inside the patio.

Additional, and very roomy, working space is ideally located on either side of the sink.  Be sure to notice the colorful backspash design. Storage space is available everywhere in the kitchen.  Whether high or low, there is a place to store your favorite dishes, glassware, and cooking utensils.  

Immediately adjacent to the kitchen is an eat in breakfast/luncheon nook that looks out onto the inviting patio and garden areas.  Even more working  space  has been created directly below the huge white multi-level display cabinet. 

There are 4 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms.  Two bedrooms are shown here for your review and consideration.  The first, shown below, is bright and cheerful, and has numerous windows for added light.  The roomy closet and handsome wooden floors are assets, and the nook area just under the window would make an ideal window seat or small desk area.  


A second bedroom has the same charm as the first, but also has double the window space -with views to the outside trees and greenery.  

A delightful brick patio area is surrounded with established plants and trees.  Rolling green grass and full fencing are additional pluses.

 An impressive overhead view of the residence shows a comprehensive picture of what is available upon purchase of this fine home.  Located on an appealing corner lot, and surrounded by the substantial gardens, this home has @2898 sf of space, and is being offered for sale for $1,500,000.
