Light-filled, spacious, and elegant describe this North Berkeley home on an oversized beautifully landscaped lot. On gentle Spruce Street, a favorite for bicyclists and neighborhood walks, the home is set back from the street with garden paths, 4 mature Maple trees and other Mediterranean plantings.
The arched entry invites you to the large living room with filtered Bay and Golden Gate views, windows on 3 sides, an arched fireplace and a vista to the verdant backyard. A traditional floorplan connects the dining room to the tastefully designed kitchen with wrap around counters, views to the backyard from the kitchen sink, 2nd prep sink and laundry closet. The breakfast room leads to the backyard patio via French doors. The upslope back yard feels like a private park for your picnics on the lawn with play structure bordered by shrubs, trees and rock walls. Completing the main level is a guest bath adjacent to the central staircase and interior access to the basement.
The second level has 3 spacious bedrooms and 2 full baths; the primary bedroom with en suite full bath has SF+Bay views and 2 closets. The other front bedroom has panoramic views. Architectural features: gleaming hardwood floors throughout, an arched reading nook, multi-pane windows, sconce lighting in bedrooms. Extra storage in the basement or potential home office. Steps to AC transit, charming Berkeley hills pathways to Solano Ave or Tilden.
Perched above the city and offering the best panoramic views in the entire Bay Area, North Berkeley Hills is an incredibly peaceful residential neighborhood, yet not far from the hustle and bustle of the city’s more urban areas. Homes in the neighborhood are built in a variety of styles and feature spacious patio decks, manicured lawns and lushly landscaped gardens. Depending on where you live, North Berkeley Hills residents can enjoy views of the San Francisco and Oakland skylines, the Golden Gate Bridge, Alcatraz Island, and Mount Tamalpais. For even more great views plus a variety of great outdoor activities, residents can take a short trip to nearby Tilden Regional Park. Park amenities vary between free and paid activities. Free activities available at TIlden Park include a beautiful botanical garden, the Little Farm, and nearly 40 miles of scenic hiking trails. For a small fee, the public can also swim at Lake Anza, take a spin on the Merry-Go-Round, or enjoy a round of golf at Tilden Park Golf Course. Some residents in the southern part of North Berkeley Hills are within walking distance of the thriving retail district on Solano Avenue. Featuring a wide variety of stores, shops, and plenty of great restaurants, including: Safeway Community Markets: Located at the southwest corner of Solano and Fresno Avenues, this is a great place to check off everything on your grocery list. Noor & Sons Rug Gallery: Find handcrafted Oriental Rugs for your home, as well as rug cleaning and repair services. Peet’s Coffee: It all started in Berkeley, and this location is ideal for your morning cup of coffee before you begin your commute. Additionally, foodies who love a variety of cuisines are just a short walk or drive away from the infamous Gourmet Ghetto neighborhood. Despite its elevated location, North Berkeley Hills is extremely transit-friendly. The Alameda-Contra Costa Transit District bus lines that serve the neighborhood drop residents at the Downtown Berkeley BART station for a quick commute to downtown San Francisco. Berkeley Hills residents who live near the western section of the neighborhood are less than one mile away from the heart of UC Berkeley, making it a great area for faculty and administrators to live.
