Splendid Vacant Edwardian Duplex

Great opportunity: Rare vacant duplex in vibrant South Berkeley located mere steps to Ashby BART. These 2 lovely Edwardian residences, mirrored-images, each features 3 bedrooms, spacious eat-in kitchen, living room, flexible use family room, 1 bathroom and laundry room. They both have delightful landscaped gardens for a fabulous indoor-outdoor lifestyle.

Ideal for partners, these 2-storied homes on a sunny corner parcel share a brand new 2-car garage and an undeveloped peak-roofed attic for expansion potential. Each unit has beautiful wood floors to complement the classic ornate details and handsome original fireplaces. Upstairs there are 2 bright bedrooms and a flexible-use family room that could be a special garden-view office. You’ll enjoy glorious light through bay windows and warm days on your private porch and verdant garden, your own tranquil retreat.

Situated in desirable South Berkeley, this duplex offers comfortable living within a vibrant urban community. You are minutes to shopping at Berkeley Bowl, downtown Berkeley, Elmwood eateries and cafes, the popular Berkeley Tool Lending Library, theater district, and freeway access. Currently the city is reimagining the Adeline/South Shattuck Corridor which should increase green open space along that thoroughfare, improve the pedestrian experience and build neighborhood character.

Pre-escrow opened with Lori Endo, Old Republic Title. Disclosure package available through listing agents. Seller reserves the right to accept, counter or reject any offer. MLS #40818502/469016
