Built in 1919, the home’s exterior features auburn wood shingling, a style often found in Northern Californian architecture. Once inside, stairs lead to suite #4 on the second floor.

Matchstick style hardwood lines the floor. A charming faux wood furnace heats the condo while built-in linen cabinets provide storage near the entrance. Beside the furnace is a stylish, unique staircase that leads to a loft upstairs. The loft features carpeting and a skylight. Downstairs, the living room overlooks an emerald garden outside—a picturesque setting for afternoon tea or a romantic home-cooked dinner.
A full kitchen sits adjacent to the living room, featuring a stainless steel oven and microwave, olive green countertops, classic-style refrigerator, and an exposed brick column. Across the living room is a full bathroom, complete with bright honeycomb-shaped tiling, combination shower/bathtub, built-in shelves and cabinets, and a modern oval mirror above the sink. The bedroom is also adjacent to the main living area overlooking the outside yard.

The suite is excellently suited for either an individual or a couple hoping to live in one of Berkeley’s most vibrant hubs.
