Bold Meets Classic Elegance

Located on a fabulous street in the heart of the Elmwood this circa 1923 traditional home has been in the same family for 67 years and has been recently updated for the next owner. Step through the front door and you are greeted by the gleaming hardwood floors and grand staircase. A perfect foyer flanked by the spacious living room with an intimate fireplace and sliding doors leading out to the park-like yard and a formal dining room perfect to host an elaborate dinner party or family gatherings.
The entire main floor is drenched in natural light from the large windows in the front rooms. The floor plan flows seamlessly with the kitchen and adjacent pantry, bedroom with separate entrance and guest bath. The kitchen includes an eat-in area and ample cabinets for storage ready for the next owner’s vision. Off the pantry is the interior garage access and laundry.
On the way up the stairs, you can peek through the window into the library or study with wall to wall windows overlooking the backyard. There are two generous size bedrooms with Jack-n-Jill access, a full bath and a master suite with bath and his and her closet.
This home is located in the prized Elmwood neighborhood with great schools and just a block from College Avenue shops and restaurants and daily life conveniences along with nearby UC Berkeley. It is just minutes from highways 13 and 24 and a short distance from both Ashby and Rockridge BART stations.

Beating in the heart of Cal Berkeley’s South Campus region is the quaint neighborhood that locals call “The Elmwood.” The enclave’s history parallels that of many communities in the Bay Area that sprung up following the San Francisco earthquake of 1906, when rebuilding efforts gave life to the streetcar suburb as part of the 1900s housing boom.


Stretching along College and Ashby Avenues, you’ll find many Elmwood hotspots:



Rich with artistic inspiration, Elmwood is also the resident nesting spot of celebrated author, Michael Chabon and fellow writer wife, Ayelet Waldman. Chabon was awarded the Pulitzer Prize for Fiction in 2001 and frequently references Elmwood's beautiful characteristics in his work.


Architecturally interesting with its abundance of brown-shingled craftsman houses and tree-lined streets, Elmwood’s quaint, convenient, and family-friendly lifestyle make it an irresistible East Bay community.
