Spectacular Family Retreat in Ideal Location
It doesn't get better than this!  Perched on a knoll above the Arlington Fountain, this is the sweet spot.  High enough to have dead-on Golden Gate views but low enough to stroll to all things North Berkeley.  Solano and Shattuck Avenues are steps away. Wander gorgeous neighborhood paths to legendary Berkeley parks such as Indian Rock, John Hinkel or Tilden. Or catch the Transbay Express and plug in on your comfortable ride to the City.  
Return home to elegance that is both grand and cozy.  Period details and subtle upgrades grace the expansive common areas.  Guest room with bathroom tucked in back. Up the exquisite staircase you'll find four ample bedrooms, all with amazing light.  Elegant master suite seems to float above the Bay.  A yard like a pocket-park with sleep-in playhouse is the cherry on top!
Upgrades include dual-paned windows, new furnace, updated kitchen and master bath.  Drainage and seismic work done. Huge basement with tons of storage, and detached two-car garage.

Home to one of the most prestigious universities in the country, Berkeley offers the intellectual and cultural stimulation from its campus -- which is within walking distance of downtown. Many Berkeley neighborhoods were established in the 1920s, with quiet, tree-lined streets, brown-shingled homes, and lushly landscaped yards. In Thousand Oaks, the original developers preserved ancient oak trees and left rock outcroppings intact. Elmwood, with its thriving business district, remains one of the city’s most sought-after neighborhoods. In Claremont, the Claremont Hotel, a gleaming white Victorian-era landmark, has provided generations of Bay Area residents with a luxurious getaway. Berkeley has long been at the forefront of culinary innovation. Locals flock to the original Peet’s Coffee & Tea location. For residents who like to savor their meals at home, small retail districts sprinkled throughout Berkeley allow them to shop like Europeans, going from store to store to purchase everything they need. Those in a hurry can always visit major grocery stores nearby. Neighborhood green spaces abound throughout Berkeley, from small community gardens to the Berkeley Rose Garden -- which boasts more than 3,000 rose bushes. The gem of the area is 2,000-acre Tilden Regional Park, with its miles of biking and hiking trails and the naturally landscaped swimming hole at Lake Anza.
