Quintessential Berkeley Brown Shingle Craftsman (c.1908). Designed by Architect George Plowman as his own residence. The distinctive exterior features a broad porch, front balcony and unusual roof line, merely hinting at the treasures within. The interiors of the public rooms are classic --- bare wood, two inglenooks in the living room, original light fixtures, window seats, bookcases and built-ins. The spacious dining room opens onto a deck with San Francisco and Bay views. This level also includes a stylishly remodeled kitchen, cozy sunroom, a half bath and laundry.
Upstairs are three bedrooms and two baths; two of the charming bedrooms have French doors to balconies with fabulous views. The front bedroom opens to the serenity of a large redwood tree.
In addition, the lower level contains a large rumpus room and a storeroom. The south-facing garden is sunny and private. A two-car garage was recently rebuilt.
This enchanting home is located on a cul-de-sac just above Emerson School --- convenient to Elmwood shops and restaurants, as well as UC Berkreley and public transportation. Live in a piece of early Berkeley history!
