About 1826 Hearst Ave

Rarely does a property come to market that offers such a desirable location, thoughtful remodel and beautiful, curated gardens as this stunning North Berkeley home. Built in 1912, this picturesque, quintessential brown shingle "Berkeley-style" Craftsman offers 3 BR, 1.5 BA, a spacious living room/dining room, home office, an updated kitchen, and a large, finished attic bonus space (presently used as a playroom for visiting grandchildren), all on a deep, oversized lot. Preserved original features include 9-ft coved ceilings, oak & Douglas fir floors, fireplace, stained glass windows & tall wainscot paneling. An extensive 2008 remodel created a new primary bedroom w/an 11-ft cathedral ceiling, gas fireplace & walk-in closet. The home's gardens are truly spectacular, a private sanctuary created over 30 years. Pergolas, arbors, climbing roses, Japanese wistaria, an elephant grass privacy screen + so much more. Located across from Ohlone Park just 2 blocks to University Ave & 1/2 mile to the Cal campus + downtown Berkeley, the neighborhood is filled with many of Berkeley's renowned restaurants. Lovingly maintained and preserved for more than 110 years, this remarkable vintage home offers an extraordinary ownership opportunity for the next steward of an exceptional Berkeley treasure.
