Welcome to your warm and wonderful 1940’s abode! Known for being a Walker’s Paradise, this new home provides you with a multitude of accessible perks just minutes away!

Conveniently located in the Elmwood neighborhood, close to Willard Park, College Ave shops, Whole Foods, UC Berkeley campus and Rockridge BART this is the perfect location for anyone who enjoys proximity yet reaps the benefits of a tranquil and charming street.

The home itself, is a two-story unit but lives more like a townhome, with the living space on the main level, and two-bedrooms and full bath on the upper level.  This unit is one of two that faces Russell Street, allowing for wonderful south-facing light throughout the day, and yet set back enough to allow for peace and quiet.

The living room and dining room are well-proportioned, and lead to the original kitchen w/ updated appliances. There is access to a small, shared yard.

Upstairs, the front bedroom is of gracious size with a large closet. The unit comes with one covered parking spot and a generous storage unit (built in 2010). Modern conveniences include a tankless water heater and A/C for those warmer days.

This is a great home-alternative for those seeking to be in a fantastic Berkeley location. Well-run HOA. A must see!

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.
