Built in 1912 this beautiful brown shingle craftsman features inviting details and period craftsman woodwork in its three bedrooms and one and one-half bathroom design. Its enclosed front porch opens to a spacious living room, grand brick fireplace and wonderful sunroom with floor to ceiling windows, a perfect spot to get lost in your favorite book or to enjoy your morning beverage while catching up on the Rockridge News. The gracious formal dining room, with dramatic windows, provides ample space for entertaining friends and family on a grand scale. The updated kitchen has granite counters, custom cabinetry, stainless appliances and a sweet eat-in area with outlooks to the well-designed garden. Follow the utility staircase to the upper level or take the main grand stair: both work well and lead to the upper level. Here you will find three bedrooms plus a den or home office, one full bathroom with well-preserved period tile that honors the original style of the home. The master bedroom has lovely light, large mirrored closets and a view of San Francisco in the distance. Sensible updates include a newer foundation, updated electrical and a landscaped rear garden and patio. This fabulous location is just a short stroll to BART, Market Hall and all of the charming shops and restaurants that Rockridge has to offer.
