Light-filled, with beautiful bay views, 6520 Lagunitas Avenue is a grand and spacious 4BD/3.5BA 3429 square foot Spanish revival. Rich architectural features with modern amenities and a versatile guest suite on the lower level. This tranquil home is perfect for family gatherings, barbeques, and entertaining of all sorts. Perfectly situated, just moments from Berkeley Country Club, regional and local parks, BART, and excellent El Cerrito amenities.
From the moment you enter 6520 Lagunitas, you are drawn to its expansive living room with hardwood floors, beamed ceilings, and fireplace with marble hearth. Take in the sweeping views of the Bay Bridge and the San Francisco skyline from the windows on the balcony that runs the length of the home.
The living room opens onto a spacious family/media room with hardwood floors, built-in shelves, fireplace with tile accents, and a wet bar for entertaining. Guests can meander out on the balcony to watch the sunset over the bay.
Back in the living room at 6520 Lagunitas, an ingenious circular floor plan encourages you to wend your way through the formal dining room to the remodeled kitchen. Modern updates blend style and utility, with Viking gas range and griddle, additional wall oven, natural stone countertops, abundant wood cabinets and built-in pantry shelves, breakfast bar, and spacious breakfast room with an enchanting bay view. Spanish tile floors echo the Mediterranean architectural style.
On one side of the kitchen is a powder room, on the other is a magical surprise: a cedar-lined spa room built to soak away the stresses of the day, overlooking the bay.
Upstairs, a welcoming owner’s suite has adjacent dressing room and closet with built-in shelves, full bath with chiseled stone tile, and step-in shower. An additional closet provides more storage space. Corner windows offer partial view of San Pablo Bay, while rear windows overlook the Bay Bridge and SF skyline. A brick fireplace graces one wall.
Two additional bedrooms, each with sun drenched corner windows and large closets with built-in shelves, share a renovated hall bath. The lovely updated bathroom has beautiful tile and shower over an extra deep tub for soaking.
On the lower level is a guest suite with full bath accessible via an interior staircase and a separate entrance to the yard. On one side of the suite is a laundry room with utility sink, and on the other is another surprise: a large, well-equipped workshop with utility sink.
Outside is a large sunny Trex deck, a stone patio, and lawn. A greenhouse and raised planting beds in the rear garden await your green thumb. Detached 2 car garage offers additional storage below.
