About 2119 Essex St

Edwardian oasis in South Berkeley. This property was home, for over 50 years, to a family who embraced the values of the Berkeley of old. This 4 bedroom, 2 bath home has old-world sophisticated charm with beautiful wood floors, traditional high ceilings, light and airy space, and so much original charm still intact. A well-appointed kitchen, with a charming butler pantry, and a view of the yard. The bedrooms are spacious. There is a bedroom and bath on the main living floor and 3 bedrooms and a bath on the upper level. The large secluded garden boasts mature fruit trees such as Meyer lemon, fig, and persimmon. This garden is also ready for your country life ideas: Perhaps chickens and vegetable beds? Especially desired is access to local fare and restaurants, all just a short distance to Rockridge, downtown Berkeley, Ashby BART, or the heart of Elmwood. Local parks such as Willard Park and Bushrod Park summon sport and enjoyment. The university is close, as well as the iconic Berkeley Bowl. Everybody's dream come true!
