About 1729 Virginia St

Known by locals as the 'Real Easy Home' as honored in the corner garden bench, this home is steeped in local history. Originally crafted for an Armenian carpet dealer in 1903, this residence has since been a cherished haven for artistic souls and community spirits alike. Rebuilt, reimagined and basking in natural light, this home is modern and flexible, and can be used as a 4- or 5-bedroom home that includes a lower-level junior ADU or plus space that be accessed separately. In addition, it has a detached 1-bed, 1-bath ADU. Multigenerational living, cohabitation or supplement your income! All finishes are modern and efficient, such as new foundation and systems, Heat Pump for heating and cooling, plus radiant heat in the lower level and ADU. Heath tile and custom-designed finishes in both kitchens and bathrooms have been artistically designed. Enjoy natural kitchen light from the elliptical skylight as you host guests in the concept space. Partially finished attic for storage (or perhaps expansion?). Conveniently located to everything Berkeley has to offer. Produce at Monterey Market? Chez Panisse or Cheeseboard for dinner tonight? Easy access to SF by BART or A/C transit too. Quality home, A+ location. Come see all of its unique and exquisitely designed features!
