Tucked away on a quiet street in the heart of the famed Elmwood neighborhood in midst of lush, award winning landscaping, this meticulously maintained, elegant brown shingle Craftsman combines historic charm with modern updates, style and an artistic flair. Entering through a gated front garden for utmost privacy, the house exudes sophistication, romance, and understated elegance in a manner that is rarely seen in historic homes. A generous entryway opens to a spacious living and dining room with adjacent study surrounded by beautiful divided glass windows offering filtered views of the garden. A gracious stairwell leads to the second story bedrooms with gleaming hardwood floors and pristinely painted walls. Upstairs, four generous bedrooms and a sunroom that share two full baths with one of the bedrooms conveniently accessible via a second stairway. A farmhouse kitchen opens to the multiple level outdoor seating areas with fireplace, an indulgent spa area with sunken hot tub and outdoor shower designed for maximum privacy.
The surrounding gardens were designed by famed landscape Designer Robert Trachtenberg, combining natural stone and slate pavers with verdant plantings and rich textures for a serene, peaceful and utterly modern aesthetic. In addition, a detached cottage with vaulted ceiling and loft area can be expanded into guest quarters, gym or writers studio. A gated driveway and parking area are both convenient and safe. A serene oasis located just steps from the historic Elmwood and Rockridge shopping districts, UC Berkeley, the library, shops and restaurants.
