The best of Bay Area living is in the heart of Rockridge where this 5 BR/3.5 BA 1910 Craftsman offers modern upgrades, an ideal layout, custom finishes, major structural and systems upgrades plus a full-service 2-story cottage ADU. From its welcoming sitting porch and clinker brickwork, the 2646 square foot home opens to a foyer with stained glass and a built-in storage bench and wardrobe. Glass French doors lead into the living room with picture and casement windows and a period brick fireplace. Coffered ceilings, crown molding, and intricate inlaid wood floors continue through the bright dining room. The sunny, fully renovated kitchen bridges the formal rooms to the convenient family room (with custom modern built-ins), powder room, and office area. Up the gracious staircase, find four bedrooms with ample closet space, easy laundry, and two full baths, including the primary bedroom’s ensuite split bathroom with jetted tub and custom closet systems. Enjoy indoor/outdoor living from the kitchen’s French doors onto a spacious deck overlooking the backyard with mature landscaping and low maintenance turf. The ultra-charming ADU with full bath could be a rental, office, or guesthouse. Shopping, grocery stores, great dining, and BART are just blocks away on College Avenue and top-rated public & private schools nearby. Urban excitement and a comfortable lifestyle are all here!
