Why we have a crush on this property

While standing at the front gate of this impressive home for sale in Berkeley, California, you can turn around to see the Golden Gate Bridge over San Francisco Bay. Start walking toward the house, though, and you’ll feel like you’ve entered a secret garden: a path flanked by lush plants leads to the entrance of the whimsical shingled home.

Inside the main house, dark wood exposed beams, wainscoting, and paneling lend a moody vibe to such a sunny space. A comfy living room offers a wood stove and a desk alcove, and beyond it, an airy dining area flows into the kitchen. Mint green cabinets, a central tiled island, and updated appliances make for an inviting space to try out a new recipe.

One of the home’s two bedrooms boasts vaulted whitewashed ceilings, huge windows, and a sizable closet. The second bedroom is just as cozy, with shingled walls, even more windows, and plenty of space for a writing desk. The nearby wood-paneled bathroom, meanwhile, features a freestanding clawfoot tub.

The property also offers an ADU, or additional dwelling unit. This guest house (or in-law apartment, if you’d like) has one bedroom, one full bathroom, an open-concept kitchen and living area, skylight windows, and a patio.
