Colonial Revival from 1880 reimagined for the new millennium! While the façade pays homage to classic American architecture (portico, wooden wall cladding, paired windows, grand staircase entry), the interior is a stunning testament to thoughtful modern design. A study in light and spatiality, the main floor boasts dramatic twelve-foot ceilings, a sun-filtering skylight, and an airy floorplan that allows you to see through the house from front to back - truly open-concept living. The pièce de résistance is an iconic see-through staircase, a striking feature that ascends to the amply-sized sky deck. Enjoy 360-degree panoramic views of the San Francisco Bay and the East Bay skyline atop your home. Perfect for sunbathing, watching sunsets, and Fourth of July fireworks. A darling ADU with level-in separate entry, full kitchen, and washer and dryer make this a flex space for multi-generational living, rental income/Airbnb, or au pair quarters. The magical backyard is surrounded by a canopy of foliage offering a verdant peaceful setting. Plenty of space to dine al fresco, barbeque, or throw a garden party. With a 99 walkscore, live mere blocks from the University of California Berkeley, BART, Equinox, downtown shopping dining theatres, and more. Take advantage of all this vibrant cerebral city has to offer.
