Things we love about this property crush: 

There’s no getting around it: The Bay Area is crazy expensive. But let’s put that aside to view this seriously charming condo in Berkeley. Though it’s one of four units in a stunning Craftsman building, the one-bedroom, one-bath home is surprisingly spacious. Clocking in at nearly 1,000 square feet of space, there’s a whole lot inside. It feels almost—dare we say—affordable?

Pop into the foyer—it’s the greeting space of the home. There’s room here for a pretty desk or even a nice bench. From here, French doors open into a large living space. There’s a big, street-facing window on one side and a gorgeously tiled gas-insert fireplace on another. Hardwood floors run throughout.

Next up is a separate and very spacious formal dining area with built-ins just begging for a bar. We sort of love how it’s actually not open concept here and makes the place fill a ton bigger. Really, you could even transform it into an extra bedroom, if needed.

The kitchen is in the next room: a fully-upgraded space with bright white cabinetry that flanks stainless steel appliances, quartz countertops, and cult-favorite Heath Ceramics backsplash. As they say, it’s all in the details. 

The one bedroom is nicely sized and has windows for natural lighting, plus crown molding. The classic bathroom has been updated with a pedestal sink, a shower-tub combo, and hexagonal tilework. 

Outside, there’s a sweet little shared garden space with a picnic table and a private storage space with dedicated washer and dryer. And the location is tops and convenient to College Ave, Telegraph, and UC Berkeley.
