It is rare that one home can combine so many outstanding features into one unique living space.
This special home, located at 10 Northgate Avenue, is high in the Berkeley hills, and provides stunning Bay area views. It is surrounded with long established, and well cared for gardens, and is just minutes from the many popular North Berkeley shops and restaurants.
It offers 3 bedrooms, 2 1/2 bathrooms, and 1853 sf of living space.
With well established fruit trees, plantings, and multiple gardens above and below this fully fenced private deck, one can enjoy a serene and comfortable living experience, and be able to host a variety of special events for friends and family.
To compliment the already desirable elements of this home's location, the Bay Area view directly below captures San Francisco, the Bay, both bridges and Marin.
The entry to the home is seen here, providing a fully fenced front entrance that opens onto a driveway to the right, and to steps down to the home, and to the front terrace seen below.
An appealing terrace awaits guests who want to enjoy the peace and privacy of the home's upper level gardens.
Just steps below, the entryway to the home offers a quiet niche for relaxing, and the distinctive front door opens to an outstanding living space.
Steps down into the home's living room take one to this impressive living space that glows with warm sunlight from virtually every angle.
This is a classic open concept design that encourages, and provides, easy movement from one corner to another in the interior space, and then on out to the view balcony.
The large living room, anchored by a warm and welcoming fireplace, easily accommodates a large sofa and cocktail table, and any assortment of chairs or settees that one could want.
Tall ceilings, with an array of overhead lighting, create an exceptional ambiance as they combine with the light from the marvelous floor to ceiling windows, and the double door exit to the splendid view porch.
Just above the living room, on the entry level of the home, is this spacious and artfully imagined dining room and kitchen combination. Once again, the high, softly lit ceiling combines beautifully with the white walls to create an inviting and congenial ambiance for entertaining.
To the top left is yet another seating area that is paired with floor to ceiling view windows.
A wide island adjacent to the dining table offers multiple opportunities for food preparation and food service. To its left, three backless bar stools are available to create an eat in kitchen site-whether breakfast or lunch-and a table top gas range that is perfect for grilling or simmering of meals.
Large storage units in front, and all around the kitchen allow generous storage of both quality and high end china, silverware and serving pieces.
An up close view of the kitchen itself reveals the wide counter space, and, as a special asset for both chef and guests, a pair of view windows that overlook both the bay below, and the surrounding trees.
Appliances include a dishwasher, a gas range/cooktop and refrigerator.
There are three bedrooms in the home. Two will be shown for your consideration. The first, seen here, is the masterful and truly impressive primary bedroom.
Exceptionally large, it is surrounded by windows and doors that are tailor made to capture the beauty all around it. It has a highly flexible floor plan, and, most desirably, direct access to the outstanding outside deck and the accompanying area's many vistas.
A reverse perspective illustrates its size and flexibility.
A complete and efficient en suite bathroom is just steps away.
An equally sizeable and flexible second bedroom is also available, as seen here.
This closing view of the residence reveals its commanding presence on the hillside, and both the upper and lower gardens that surround it.
If you have an interest in this home, I encourage you to call me promptly regarding it at (510) 517-6280. It is being offered for sale for $1,495,000.
