High in the Berkeley hills on the edge of well loved Tilden Park is this serene, tree shaded home at 1101 Woodside Road. Providing 4 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms, it offers 2350 sf of living space.
Located in the long established Park Hills private association of homes, it is close to their parks, picnic area and basketball courts.
It is also ideally placed adjacent to Tilden Park's miles of hiking and biking trails, and close by is Lake Anza, and the Tilden Park Golf Course. For those who enjoy the outdoors, this home is one to strongly consider.
This handsome living room and dining room combination is perfectly designed for relaxed living, and entertaining. The large, and distinctively designed fireplace is an ideal space around which to gather -especially on cooler Bay area evenings.
The incoming light through the floor to ceiling windows is supplemented by the soft overhead lighting of the gently pitched ceiling.
Between both rooms is a door that leads to the outside deck and allows a free flow of activity from one of these three rooms to the other.
The dining area can easily accommodate a 6-8 chair table with room for a buffet server, and perhaps a small cocktail bar.
Between the dining and living space, and thoughtfully placed, is the entrance to the kitchen. The entryway features a counter to the right that doubles as a serving site for meals when they are ready.
Updated and engaging , this gleaming kitchen provides a wealth of storage and workspace. Anchored by a large picture window with a view to the front of the home, it literally has storage space from floor to ceiling. No matter what the serving piece or utensil, there should be a place for it.
Worthy of note are the many updated features available. They include stone counters, dishwasher, gas range/cooktop, microwave, built in oven, and refrigerator.
There are two bedrooms on each of the two floors of the home. Certainly one of the most outstanding features of this house is this compelling primary bedroom. The far wall of windows, with its gracefully curving upper arch, captures sweeping views of the beauty of the surrounding trees.
The floor space is marvelous, and to the left, is yet another, and very desirable feature-a splendid walk in closet with a generous selection of shelves and hanging space.
To the right, and behind a closed sliding door when desired, is the large primary bathroom with gleaming mirrors, and a shower over a tub format.
An additional nearby bedroom is seen here, and is spacious enough to provide numerous opportunities for placement of bed, chests of drawers, or soft side chairs.
This is the second of three bathrooms, and its clever interweaving of shades of grey and white in the counter and the tile walls provides a cheerful and imaginative presentation.
Moving to the lower level of the home, one discovers this very flexible living space that is the home's family room. Its simplicity of design invites creation of a place for media presentations, luncheons, card and board games, or whatever one's individual needs would require.
Three of the four bedrooms will be shown here. One of the lower bedrooms has been adapted to an office space, and includes a sliding glass door that opens out to the expansive back patio, as seen here, and in the view below.
The room could easily be returned to a bedroom use if needed, or become an arts and craft room, or perhaps a music or play room.
The rear yard is surrounded by sheltering trees, hedges and garden space, making it a truly inviting spot for pleasant reading, games and recreation, or a large luncheon or barbeque.
This view shows the distinctive triangular shaped upper porch with outdoor seating that is just off the living room.
I encourage you to call me promptly with your interest in this home at (510) 517-6280. It is being offered for sale for $1,695,000.
