Nestled in the lower Berkeley hills, near both campus and the North Shattuck Gourmet area shops and restaurants, this light-filled home has it all -- classic elegance, a lovely eat-in kitchen with ample storage and lush Carrara countertops, Bay & SF views, great flow to the large yard, and spaces for all your needs! 3 generously-sized bedrooms, including a primary suite with views, an attached bath and a dressing room. PLUS, 2 offices in the main house, a detached cottage with a full bath, temperature-controlled storage for wine, books, or other collectibles, and an additional out-building at the upper view patio that could be used for storage or adapted as a gym, art studio, etc. Great layout for entertaining, with French doors leading from both the kitchen and living room to the back patio! Hang out there, or head to the view patio to savor the sunset over San Francisco or lounge by the outdoor fireplace. Foundation re-done in 2003, along with drainage and seismic upgrades!
