429 Michigan Avenue
Located in one of Berkeley Hills favorite neighborhoods with incredible sweeping views of San Francisco, Golden Gate and Mt. Tamalpais, this gracious & spacious light-filled 3 bedroom and 2 bath home is loaded with classic charm and absolutely lovely indoor/outdoor flow. Enjoy some of the best California living that the East Bay has to offer. The generously proportioned living room with large picture window, beautiful fireplace, built-ins and hardwood floors can accommodate a piano and large gatherings with grace. An adjacent formal dining room and expanded lovely eat-in kitchen (with office nook) both open to the wonderful back yard through level-out French doors. Perfect for el fresco dining or play, the patio and gentle up-slope yard with drought tolerant garden is precious and private.
An en suite bedroom on the first floor works well as a den, guest room or third bedroom. The laundry room which opens to a side yard dog run completes the first level of this easy-living home. Head upstairs for an additional 2 oversized bedrooms, one with a large bonus sunroom and viewing deck. Also, a spacious second full bath. Both baths are finished in mostly vintage tile. At the street level, you’ll find the attached garage with interior access, mid-level is a bonus workroom and large storage area. Inspector Ian has confirmed that this home not only looks great, but has been well-maintained by the sellers for the past 30 years. They have loved living in this home and creating a life-time of memories while rearing their now grown-up children here.
This is truly an unusually convenient, quiet location with walkable sidewalks. It is convenient to Kensington Village shops, Solano Avenue, Berkeley’s Gourmet Ghetto, Tilden Regional Park, and SF direct bus/public transportation. Don’t miss Dorothy Bolte Park just around the corner on Spruce Street, with a sweet kids play area and cool concrete slide. Head straight down Spruce Street to UC Berkeley as well.
Come for the view! Stay for a happy life in this special forever home.
