About 479 Kentucky Avenue

Bring this North Berkeley Hills fairytale back to life in this contractor’s special! With a lovely layout accentuating Golden Gate views and some old world charm worthy of preserving, this 3+BD/2BA storybook home is ready for TLC and a modern vision. Step through the stone-arched front door into the 1784 SQFT home with original redwood intact. The living room features stunning views from the Golden Gate Bridge to Mt Tam. Both the fireplace mantle and crown molding retain the home’s vintage woodwork. A sunny dining room with mullioned windows and a built-in bench, shelving, and storage adjoins the kitchen with a bonus room, offering the opportunity to develop a dream custom kitchen with easy indoor/outdoor living to the backyard. Mature trees and terracing anchor the backyard vision where the large lot can be an oasis for entertaining, play or possible future development. Upstairs, the primary bedroom has an ensuite bath and a romantic dormer window with a view. Two other bright bedrooms share a full bath.The huge refurbished attic offers further potential development potential as another bedroom, office, or den, while the large basement and one car garage offer storage, parking and additional possibilities. Ideally located near Tilden Park, Kensington village, and top schools.
