This glowing home, with its expansive picture windows and warm overhead lighting, is immediately welcoming. Golden colored hardwood floors highlight the generous floor space that is available for gracious living and relaxing entertaining.
This updated gem is located in Berkeley at 2815 Stanton Street, and offers 3 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms in 1815 +/- sf of living space.
This charming home, with its delightful wrought iron railings and archway, is one of many pleasant homes along a tree lined street in South Berkeley, and not far from the city's popular Gourmet Ghetto, and the ever imaginative Fourth Street shops and restaurants.
Upon entering the home, one is immediately aware of this well designed living space that is devoted to entertaining.
A full wet bar, complete with a wine refrigerator, built in sink, multiple levels of storage for serving pieces, glassware and china, is well located adjacent to both the living room and dining areas.
A closer view of the bar reveals its flexibility. There is a generous preparation and work space, and it can easily double as a buffet/server when meals are ready for service.
This gleaming kitchen has been updated, and is aglow with the white of the multi-level cabinets and lower drawers, the generous overhead supplemental lighting, and the cheerful over the sink view windows.
Many new amenities await the dedicated home chef. In addition to the stone counters that run the length of the room, a dishwasher, gas range/cooktop, built in oven, and refrigerator are available to contribute to distinctive meal preparation.
Just beyond the kitchen on the main floor, is this sizeable living space which is currently being used as a family room. While it is certainly effective as a family room given its size, other options might include a combination of perhaps a play room with a music room, or an arts and craft room with an office.
As indicated earlier, there are three bedrooms in the home. Above, and on the main floor, is the first of the three. More than ample in size, it has built in shelving and closet space on the far wall.
From the family room, this handsome set of stairs lead to two additional bedrooms on the second floor.
The second bedroom, upstairs, continues the home's theme of softly colored walls, hardwood floors, generous window space, and crown and baseboard molding.
The largest of the three bedrooms is this primary bedroom which offers amazing flexibility in design potential. Rich trim, distinctive overhead lighting, and outstanding square footage, makes this room a prize.
A truly spectacular bonus is this amazing floor to ceiling closet with side mirror and full length overhead lighting-something that is not seen that often in many homes.
The primary en suite bathroom is a harmonious combination of black and white colors, featuring gleaming hexagonal tiles, a large mirrored sink, and oversized glass shower.
Moving outside, to the rear of the home, one discovers this private and appealing back yard patio that affords more than enough space to create a very relaxing retreat or a party venue for a pleasant afternoon get together. To the right is a detached two car garage and workshop.
If this engaging home is of interest to you, please call me with your questions and interests at (510) 517-6280. It is being offered for sale for $1,098,000.
