Situated in North Berkeley, 1710 Hearst Avenue is a warm and inviting compound with two homes on the same lot. The front bungalow and owners unit is lushly landscaped as you approach. The porch entrance greets you with a wonderful trumpet vine, mature fig tree, fuchsia and other flowering plants.
This timeless Craftsman has been thoughtfully updated and lovingly maintained. The formal entry is spacious and sets the tone with original details including recessed ceilings, railings, moldings, in-lay hardwood floors and built-ins that repeat through the formal rooms. All modernized with bright fresh paint. The beautiful living room is anchored by the fireplace with a built-in gas stove and large windows to enjoy your view of Ohlone park across the street. From here enter into the gracious dining room with glass built-ins to display your treasures. This is a wonderful setting for large gatherings or intimate dinners.
Just beyond is the eat-in kitchen with classic charm and stylish updates including new quartz countertops, black matte faucet, stainless sink and dishwasher and a classic Wedgewood stove. The breakfast nook offers a place to sit and keep the chef company while also providing a smaller area to gather and share a meal.
Off the hallway are two spacious bedrooms with nice sized closets. The hall bathroom retains the vintage character with a clawfoot tub, pedestal sink and hexagonal tile floor.
Access to the back garden is off the kitchen. The south facing shared garden and patio lies between the two homes. Enjoy the cheerful and sunny area with vines, succulents, flowering plants and mature apricot tree. A perfect space to host a backyard BBQ's with friends, birthday parties with the kids or a quiet evening soiree.
The back residence has one bedroom and is currently tenant occupied. It is a bright, light space with warm natural wood, large windows and a full kitchen and bath.
No car? No problem! 1710 Hearst is located in a prime location, where you can enjoy your evening stroll and your morning bike ride, where you can easily access open green spaces. 1710 Hearst is located across from Ohlone Park and is close proximity to many amenities including Trader Joe’s, the weekly Downtown Berkeley Farmers Market, Chez Panisse and the Cheeseboard. Just a ten-minute stroll to North Berkeley BART, short distance to Downtown Berkeley and UC Berkeley. With or without a car, the city is at your fingertips.
Home to one of the most prestigious universities in the country, Berkeley offers the intellectual and cultural stimulation from its campus -- which is within walking distance of downtown. Many Berkeley neighborhoods were established in the 1920s, with quiet, tree-lined streets, brown-shingled homes, and lushly landscaped yards. In Thousand Oaks, the original developers preserved ancient oak trees and left rock outcroppings intact. Elmwood, with its thriving business district, remains one of the city’s most sought-after neighborhoods. In Claremont, the Claremont Hotel, a gleaming white Victorian-era landmark, has provided generations of Bay Area residents with a luxurious getaway. Berkeley has long been at the forefront of culinary innovation. Locals flock to the original Peet’s Coffee & Tea location. For residents who like to savor their meals at home, small retail districts sprinkled throughout Berkeley allow them to shop like Europeans, going from store to store to purchase everything they need. Those in a hurry can always visit major grocery stores nearby. Neighborhood green spaces abound throughout Berkeley, from small community gardens to the Berkeley Rose Garden -- which boasts more than 3,000 rose bushes. The gem of the area is 2,000-acre Tilden Regional Park, with its miles of biking and hiking trails and the naturally landscaped swimming hole at Lake Anza.
