Gorgeously Renovated Northwest Berkeley Single-level Home
Built in 1928, 845 Page is a stylishly updated 2 bedroom, 2 bath home in Berkeley’s trendy Oceanview neighborhood mere blocks from some of the richest amenities the East Bay has to offer. From its fine finshes and thoughtful design to its color palette and landscaping, the property’s exquisite attention to detail provides a pleasing sense of unity and comfort throughout.
Stepping inside, one takes in a view of the main living area, dining room, and kitchen—distinct spaces that will excite with an open and inviting flow. Amber-hued hardwood floors, niched ceilings, and picture rail molding are some of the more immediate and distinct features here, while newly painted walls compliment with fresh, subtle tones.
A coat closet is conveniently near the front door, while an added wall-length media cabinet faces outward toward the seating area. Its sliding wooden door offers a tasteful and modern option for hidden storage.
The adjacent formal dining area makes for an efficient use of space; along one wall, a beautiful folding door slides back to reveal a built-in office. A desktop with modern cabinetry and drawers creates an intimate space that can be easily tucked away when not in use.
At the kitchen, a breakfast bar of rich, dark wood provides a stylish contrast to the home’s lighter colors. Granite countertops, subway tile backsplash, modern fixtures, and plentiful cabinetry are found within, along with all stainless steel appliances including Frigidaire dishwasher, KitchenAid refrigerator, and Premier Pro Series hooded gas range. A pantry stows away the stackable Bosch washer and dryer. French doors open directly to the back patio.
Just off the main living are a full bath, bedroom, and linen closet. The bath features all updated fixtures, beautiful tiling, and bathtub, while the bedroom contains a spacious closet and offers views of the front yard and neighborhood.
The master bedroom suite has its own back door for private patio and yard access, and a passage leading to the master bath showcases dual sliding door closets. All modern fixtures, a glass-paned walk in shower, spacious countertop, abundant cabinetry, and gorgeous tile work distinguish the master bath.
Smart interior design amplifies this home’s inherent comforting qualities. A keen eye will notice continuity from room to room: hardware such as faucets and lighting fixtures bear a similar aesthetic, while cabinetry matches across the kitchen, office, and both baths. Bedroom, closet, and entry doors share the same vibrant wood grain. Clever cohesion offset by strategic accents give this home its sweetness and style.
A raised deck overlooks the private backyard lined with trees and jasmine winding across an arbor. Flagstone pathways lead to a side gate and utility shed, while a landscaped garden lines the inner perimeter.
The fully landscaped front garden is lovely, with drought-tolerant plantings throughout. Rounded stones border the yard, while slabs create pathways amid the foliage.
845 Page is located only blocks from Fourth Street’s thriving shopping and dining district, easy commuter access, cafes, Whole Foods Market, REI, the North Face Outlet, Ashkenaz, and the Gilman District. The Bay itself is a stone’s throw away, along with the Berkeley Marina and Cesar Chavez Park. Come see for yourself—the best of Northwest Berkeley. –
