Conscientiously updated by its doting owners, this well-loved classic bungalow has something for everybody to appreciate: spacious living room with wood burning fireplace and views of the surrounding neighborhood, formal dining room with original built-ins, a new kitchen with stainless appliances, an adjacent children's nursery overlooking the rear yard, a recently updated modern bathroom, and quiet bedrooms well above street level for slumbering through the night. Enjoy the versatility of this 3 bedroom / 1 bath home of 1,152 SF on a 3,300 SF lot. This home is unique in also featuring a "bonus" lower level of approximately 350 - 800 SF depending on how the buyers choose to use / upgrade it.
The private rear yard provides a peaceful oasis and is ideal for enjoying morning coffee from nearby Cole Coffee, an afternoon BBQ with family and friends, as well as evening wine with your loved ones beneath the stars. It's fully fenced and kid and pet friendly and includes plenty of room for gardening, dining and entertaining.
Feeds to the highly regarded Peralta elementary school known for its academic excellence just a block away. Close to everywhere you want to be, including the numerous shops and restaurants on College Avenue, Rockridge BART, AC Transit, casual carpool, and Hwys 13 and 24.
