About 1626 Chestnut Street

Welcome to 1626 Chestnut Street, a treasure situated in a prime location on a peaceful street near beautiful Cedar Rose Park. This property is a rare find, reflected as two units per public record, and historically a Golden Duplex (confirmed by Berkeley Rent Board, 4/24). Currently, the owner has functionally consolidated and used the two units as a 3bd, 2ba house (w/o a specific permit or governmental approval). Custom built gated entry w/ copper lights opens to reveal a gorgeous, lush garden oasis, nestled in are two brown shingled abodes: a craftsman-style home, and a detached garden structure (converted garage, permit status unknown). Step into the house, where you’ll find an enclosed porch overlooking the beautiful gardens. Inside, vaulted ceilings, skylights, & a cozy fireplace create a warm & inviting space. Kitchen has been updated w/ modern amenities, while the primary suite offers a serene retreat w/ custom closets & a bay window seating area. Formerly, the primary suite was the smaller rear unit of the duplex, the kitchen hookups remain behind walls. Outside, the lush garden is an enchanting oasis, the 270 sqft garden structure provides additional space for work or relaxation. New roof (2024),seismic retrofitting. This home is truly a special find. OPEN 6/1 & 6/2, 2-4.
