The warm and glowing light within this home that is captured by walls of floor to ceiling windows, creates a stunning ambiance.  If ever there was an opportunity to live contentedly, surrounded by the beauty of a forest, this townhouse at 2724 Garber B provides it.   

It offers 3 bedrooms and 1 bathroom in 1010 square feet of living space.

The location of the house in the Elmwood District of Berkeley provides a perfect proximity to the very popular shops and restaurants along College Avenue, and all around the University.  

As seen above, the living room is large, and anchored by a dramatic raised hearth central fireplace-perfect for entertaining friends-especially on a cooler Berkeley afternoon or evening.  

Directly in front of the fireplace is more that sufficient space for a large sofa, side chairs and a long coffee table.  This room truly invites one to create an exciting and magical design to match the surrounding exterior beauty.    

A different perspective reveals the view from the living room to the unit's spacious kitchen space on the lower level, and the choice upstairs office space.  

A pair of doors on the right side of the room open wide to create access from the central core of the house to the expansive back yard, and an easy and comfortable means by which one can move easily from on location to another.  

The kitchen space is well thought out.  It has been updated, and includes stone counters, an electric range cooktop, a dishwasher, and a refrigerator. 

The eat in kitchen format allows space for dining when desired, but is just as easily suited to a simple lunch or early morning breakfast.  

As indicated earlier, this is a two story unit, and the stairs that lead to the second floor provided additional visual drama with their size, and the subtle coloring of the woods that compose it.    

At the top of the stairs is a gleaming office space that provides views of the first level of home below, and additional views of the lush trees and garden to the left.  

This is the first of two bedrooms on the second floor.  A pair of large picture windows invite in the sunlight, and it easily accommodates a large bed, nightstands, and at least one soft side chair.   

The bathroom offers a pleasing black and white color contrast with the use of a well placed picture and multiple counter pulls, a large central sink, and a tile shower over tub with a final treat-an overhead skylight.

The second bedroom has two large windows, generous floorspace, and a large sliding door closet.  

There is no question that this home comes into its own when one steps outside to be surrounded by the dramatic contrast of the modern glass walls, imaginative architectural design, and the serenity of the surrounding grounds.   

A reverse view reveals a large seating area just outside the living room that is perfect for hosting parties, barbeques and special events. 

There is a charming pergola directly across the garden that is ideal as a private retreat-perhaps with a book and a cup of tea.  

I encourage you to call me with your questions about this home.  I can be reached at (510) 517-6280.  The home is being offered for sale for $1,125.000.
