Charming Rockridge Bungalow Full of Fantastic Perks

On a quaint tree-lined street is 5236 Locksley Avenue, a turn-key three bedroom, two bath home situated just blocks from booming College Avenue. With an abundance of recent upgrades, a generously sized lot, and a basement with major potential, this home is truly special.

With its classic exterior, one would never expect the myriad of smart-home features that have been cleverly added starting with the keypad entry, and Ring video-monitoring doorbell at the front entry. The expansive living area is marked by a tiled mantle and gas fireplace which flows seamlessly into the dining area and kitchen. The built-in bar seating and open concept design invites you to entertain and never feel disconnected from the action. The country-style kitchen has been fully modernized with stainless steel appliances, a butcher block island, stone countertops, and easy access out to the sunny deck and backyard beyond.

The front hall leads to an amply sized bedroom and a full hall bath. At the other end of the home is the master suite complete with a rain shower, heated towel warmer and sun tunnel, adding to the abundance of natural light throughout.  Finishing off the main level is the final bedroom, and the best, most unexpected feature of all, interior access to the basement below. Let your imagination run wild with the unlimited potential of the partially finished lower level! With over 1,000 square feet of space and outdoor access, the area is already plumbed for laundry and storage but could be transformed into a guest space, home gym, office space + more.

Enjoy the rear garden and deck offering a private sanctuary with shade from the mature cedar. Fully fenced and with plenty of room for dining, seating, and gardening, the yard truly has it all. A long driveway and automatic one-car garage complete the amazing amenities of this property.

Just a short distance to BART and College Ave, it is undeniable that the location of 5236 Locksley simply does not get much better. Dining, shopping, and easy freeway access are all just minutes away. This home exemplifies the convenience of Rockridge living. Welcome home.
