Tucked in the hills just over UC Berkeley, 1500 Campus Drive is a delightful and distinctive 3+BD/3BA Mid-Century home with Asian-influenced flair, dramatic open concept living areas, and a flexible floor plan.
Step through the entryway of this 2,488 square foot home and you are immediately drawn to its impressive and welcoming open common area, which is graced by soaring vaulted ceilings, original paneling, a raised hearth wood burning fireplace, a balcony overlooking the rear garden, and sliding glass door access to the spacious deck.
As you explore this dramatic open concept space, you realize that in addition to a living and dining area, it includes an incredible eat-in chef’s kitchen which effortlessly fuses gleaming upgrades with its original and stylish wood cabinetry. The kitchen features a built-in five-burner gas range, quartz countertops, a built-in oven, and Bosch dishwasher, and best of all, a beautiful picture window over the sink through which you can take in the view of the bay and the city. Continue on to the deck, and you will find a space ideal for outdoor entertaining, with bay and San Francisco views.
On the other side of this level of the home, still more delightful spaces await. Just off the entryway, through shoji screen doors that accent the open common area, is a versatile room lit by skylights that is ideal for an office; further exploration reveals a spacious bedroom with a large closet and a wonderful owner’s suite with its own private balcony overlooking the bay and San Francisco, plus an alcove area ideal for an office or writing nook. This level has two baths: a hallway bath with shower over tub and one with a step-in shower in the owner’s suite.
Descend a staircase lit by a skylight and 1500 Campus Drive’s expansive lower level reveals itself. There you will find a lovely bedroom, a bath with step-in shower, and an expansive open living area with a fireplace, kitchenette, and sliding glass doors to the rear garden, which is beautifully planted with lupines and citrus trees. This level includes its own doorway to the rear garden.
