The PERFECT Little Berkeley Spot
Enter through your own private front door to this lovely one-bedroom condo charmer in lower Elmwood. With its spacious upstairs bedroom & bath, the main floor living and dining room, 1940's kitchen and full laundry room this end unit is one of 4 similar side-by-side units in the small friendly complex. In addition to a couple of large closets, each condo has half of a garage for storage. This end unit, sharing only one wall, also comes with a deeded parking spot. The common area includes a fenced area with patio, lovely perimeter plantings (Blenheim apricots and pluots!) as well as a couple of shared veggie beds. Just across the street is Halcyon Commons, a community-designed mini-park featuring a large grassy area surrounded by flowering shrubs, trees, a picnic area, and a tire swing. BART and UC Berkeley are each about a mile away.
The much sought-after neighborhood of Elmwood has a rich architectural history. Early 20th-century houses, estates, and some of the more notable homes designed by prominent turn-of-the-century Bay Area architect Julia Morgan can be found in this neighborhood. The local shopping district centered on the intersection of College and Ashby avenues is a bustling hive of activity, featuring an array of gourmet eateries, boutique shops, cafes, and restaurants. Residents of Elmwood also enjoy an easy walk to public transportation, a library, and parks. For an only-in-Elmwood, experience, visit Mrs. Dalloway's, a shop that combines a bookstore and garden supplies, or Rialto Cinemas Elmwood, a Berkeley city landmark that houses a three-screen cinema. In terms of hyperlocal culture, Julia Morgan Theatre offers camps and classes as well as performances of music, dance, and theater throughout the year.
