This pleasant home, with its sunny yellow door, is very well located in the north end of Berkeley at 1349 Neilson Street.  It is especially unique in that it is a legal duplex, but is selling here as a single family home offering 2 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms in 786 sf of living space.    

For those who enjoy the excitement and variety of Berkeley living, this home is ideal.  It is close to Berkeley Natural Grocery Store, Whole Foods Market, a wide variety of delightful restaurants, BART, and for those who enjoy the outdoors, it is adjacent to the Ohlone Gateway Trails.  

Bright, cheerful light flows in from multiple windows in the living room, and there is a long wall space to the left, as seen here, that awaits a large comfortable sofa and perhaps a pair of soft chairs. 

The open beamed overhead ceiling is a handsome enhancement, as are the warmly colored floors below.   

Just inside the front door to the right here, is a door the provides access to the rest of the home.  

Just inside the open door, is this choice office space that is perfect for both business and/or personal use, as needed.  Originally used as one of the two bedrooms available in the house, it is flexible enough for either use.  A large sliding glass door mirrored closet is located directly behind the desk.  

The rest of the home is straight ahead through the open door at the left.  

Just to the left of the front entry, and down the hall a bit, is this cozy dining space.  It is just steps from the kitchen, and a large floor to ceiling mirror on the companion cabinet draws additional light in to enhance a pleasant daytime meal.     

Tucked very efficiently in between the dining area and the kitchen is this very handy washer/dryer combination.

The adjacent kitchen is very generous in size and in workspace.  Amenities include a microwave, refrigerator and a electric/range cooktop.  

There is additional room for an eat in kitchen table and chairs, or the space could easily convert to a location for a buffet server or tall china cabinet to add even more storage and food service opportunities.  

Just off the kitchen is the home's primary bedroom.  It is easily closed off for privacy, when preferred.  

The primary bedroom is comfortably sized, and can easily accommodate a larger bed and adjacent side table.  

An opposite perspective reveals the breadth and width of a floor to ceiling bookcase/display cabinet which can serve multiple uses, including light storage, if preferred.  

There are two bathrooms.  The primary bathroom will be shown here for your consideration.  It has a large sink, a stall shower, and an imaginative slit window.  

Stepping outside, one discovers a sizeable side patio that inspires  parties and special events.  Fully fenced, it features this built in outdoor barbeque that is awaiting the home chef's special delights.     

Directly behind the barbecue, is this private and shaded seating area that invites guests to enjoy their food, their friends, and the serenity of this unique space.  

At the rear of the patio area are these large gates that open onto an interior driveway for private, off street parking.

I encourage you to call me soon with your questions and interest regarding this well placed, and engaging home.  I can be reached at (510) 517-6280.  It is being offered for sale for $799,000.
