Andrew Pitarre presents:
With a one-of-a-kind mix of farmhouse architecture and modern urban vibes, this cool and fun West Berkeley compound promises to be the ultimate artist’s refuge or work-from-home setup with three detached structures and sunny outdoor spaces. Completing the property: 1) a two-bedroom, two-bath main house with updated kitchen and open concept floor plan, 2) a rear cottage with a sunny loft, full bath and possible kitchen set up and 3) a front structure that’s perfect for an office, storage, work out or work shop space.
Recently refreshed with designer touches throughout, the main house presents an open concept living/dining space and a freshly updated kitchen with new quartz countertops, artisan tile backsplash, updated cabinets, new kitchen appliances and a stackable washer/dryer. Relax or entertain close friends in the living area, with its beadboard paneling and soaring vaulted ceiling lined with rustic reclaimed wood beams from the home’s converted barn roots. A bedroom and a classically styled full bath, appointed with a clawfoot tub, oversized vanity, and natural plank walls, completes the main level.
Countless character details throughout offer a nod to history and lasting craftsmanship, from the original hardwood floors in the living and dining area to the exposed barn beams, freshly painted beadboard, terracotta tile flooring in kitchen and downstairs bathroom. New lighting and other modern designer touches keep it rooted in the present.
Upstairs, a sun-soaked primary bedroom with a full bath ensuite feels like a true retreat with large windows and a custom built-in platform bed, dresser cubbies and closet. Juliet doors opening to the private yard below let breezes and sunlight inside.
At the rear of the property, the detached cottage could be your artist studio with a possible kitchenette, quaint bathroom with shower and a ladder leading to a sunny bonus loft.
The front detached structure is ready for your use with new flooring, a large sky-lit room that could be an office, gym space, work shop space or storage.
Meanwhile, multiple outdoor spaces will keep you freshly inspired with planter beds, a private sunny patio area, slate porch and an artisan brick patio in the yard for outdoor entertaining. A courtyard entrance with a brick path leading to the garden, patio and front door gives this property an inviting, almost whimsical quality. Off-street parking keeps it convenient.
But best of all is the location. Set close to 4th Street shops, you’ll also be within walking distance to Rosa Parks School, Franklin Bros Market, Anthony's Cookies, Cafe Chiave, Paison Restaurant and only a 7-minute bike ride to North Berkeley BART! A Walk Score of 89 and Bike Score of 99 makes this urban farmhouse-style compound a once-in-a-lifetime find.
