Spoken For $1,495,000 List Price - Single Family Home
Gated and set back from the street, 2833 Ashby is a magnificent, beautifully restored 4BD/2BA Craftsman with a wonderful, deep-set back yard and detached garage – an absolute jewel of a home in Berkeley’s coveted Elmwood neighborhood. Built of old growth redwood with a clinker brick front porch adorned by trailing wisteria, the home’s vintage features include high coffered ceilings, elegant redwood wainscoting and built-ins, burnished hardwood floors with decorative inlay, and a charming clinker brick fireplace. The best of both worlds, the home also enjoys stylish modern upgrades – a spacious open chef’s kitchen with breakfast bar and dining nook, a large, beautifully remodeled main bath with dressing room connected to the primary bedroom, and an ensuite bedroom ideally positioned for a private guest/in-law/au pair suite.
Completely fenced and gated for privacy, the home enjoys abundant outdoor spaces for entertaining and relaxing. A delightful front courtyard is landscaped with drought-resistant plants native to Australia and California, while a back garden features a lush lawn, multiple decks, mature fruit trees, and a profusion of flowering plants and shrubs.
Situated in the Elmwood with a walkability score of 95, the home is moments from College Avenue shops, restaurants, bars, and cafes. Near coveted schools, the home is moments from the UC Berkeley campus and hiking trails in the hills behind the Claremont Resort and Spa. The home is also minutes from major freeways, the Rockridge Bart Station, and other public transportation – a convenience for commuters.
