Tucked away on a quiet street in South Berkeley, and completely renovated in 2019, 3026 Tremont is an utterly unique, wildly whimsical 3++BD/2BA industrial chic home where eclectic sophistication meets old world carriage house. A charming brick-framed Dutch door opens onto a dramatic modern great room with hickory plank floors, a vaulted ceiling with exposed rafters and cross beams, brick walls, and a series of luminous skylights. The home features a marvelous open chef’s kitchen, primary bedroom suite, luxurious bath with soaking tub, and a finished loft space. Additional amenities include a laundry area with stacking washer/dryer and a tranquil rear garden with a convenient storage structure. In a delightful combination of disparate styles, the home’s entryway features a built-in corner bench with beadboard wainscoting while a built-in hutch with just a hint of a mid-century vibe covers one wall. Beneath a sunny skylight, the open chef’s kitchen is a distinctive blend of textures with a sleek stone-topped breakfast bar, brick wall with multi-pane windows, custom wood cabinets, tile backsplash, and a vintage Wedgewood gas range with griddle.
All three bedrooms boast skylights and large closets, and a bonus room/office at the front of the home enjoys a wide window of multipane glass overlooking the peaceful street. Colorful tile reminiscent of an op art design decorates the bath adjoining the primary suite, and the large shared bath features a luxurious soaking tub on slate tiles and a unique vanity provides storage. Above the great room, an enchanting loft space might make a quirky children’s playroom or an ideal spot for watching the sunset through the tall peaked windows.
Situated in South Berkeley, the home is moments from UC Berkeley, downtown Berkeley, and a wide array of independent shops, restaurants, and cafes including Berkeley Bowl, Sconehenge Cafe, and Kirala Sushi. Conveniently located for commuters, the home is near major transportation routes including AC Transit and the Ashby and Downtown BART stations.
