ASKING PRICE: $769,000

Welcome to an inviting Bungalow (circa 1922) in a popular neighborhood convenient to BART, Trader Joe's, cafe latte, restaurants, UC Campus and freeways!

The sun-filled eat-in kitchen has space for projects or homework and direct access to the lush garden for play.

Fabulous Gourmet Ghetto Neighborhood

1914 Virginia Street, Berkeley

ASKING PRICE: $865,000

This enchanting circa 1906 brown shingle beckons with charm and warmth. Enter from the enticing front porch through the spacious entry foyer into a welcoming world of natural light and soaring ceilings. The landscaping is stunning: the back garden setting is lushly green with a large deck, outdoor areas for play and relaxation, and a detached and insulated room for work or play. The front garden is alive with an exquisite array of blooming plants.

The eat-in kitchen is great for entertaining with an open floorplan that flows easily from the living room and dining room to the deck and garden. The formal dining room has natural wood trim and a period fireplace (decorative only); the living room is bright and airy, accented by coved ceilings and ample windows.

Upstairs, the master bedroom is a two-room suite with southern exposure. The plumbing in the sunroom portion of the suite has been capped off; a kitchen was previously located here. The two front bedrooms feature coved ceilings and plentiful windows. The bathroom is spacious. There is a sturdy pull-down ladder in the upstairs landing for easy access to the large attic.

The friendly, Gourmet Ghetto neighborhood is near everything - a walk score of 89!

Grab tapas and a glass of wine at César before going to Berkeley Rep Theater, or stop at the post office and drug store on your way to the bank.

MID-CENTURY MODERN
By Roger Lee

ASKING PRICE: $849,950

The two-sided fireplace is a focal point for both the living room and the family room. The family room was designed as an art studio and is known to the family as the "swing room" because of the hanging chair. This sensational room has uniquely angled walls and serene natural light from the north east.

Notice the lush, sumptuous redwood of the interior ceilings and walls. This beautiful clear heart wood extends throughout the home. The exterior siding is also redwood.

State-of-the-art 1956 design features include a built-in vacuum system and a dual-zone central heating system. The bonus room across from the main entry door was designed for storage, but could also be utilized as a work-out room, art studio, or home office.

The galley kitchen, typical of the modernist period, enjoys commanding views and has direct access to a deck for casual dining, coffee or relaxing with a book.

The master bedroom has a fireplace and elegant bathroom with both tub and stall shower. The master bathroom was remodeled and expanded in 2006/2007 in keeping with the mid-century style.

The furnaces are located in the basement area of the home, accessible from the exterior on the north side.
