Living Here

Experience the zen peacefulness of this gracious Mid Century. Located in the historic lower section of Alvarado, the beautiful double lot backs onto Sunset Trail, a pedestrian path that leads you towards all the amenities of Claremont Resort and Spa in Berkeley. The house is level in from the street under a covered portico surrounding a sculpted evergreen.  Stunning unobstructed views of San Francisco and the Golden Gate Bridge greet you immediately and any intrusion of surrounding development is blocked by your own forest of native live oak trees. 

The home boasts nearly 3,000 square feet of living space, with emphasis on “living”.  With five bedrooms and equally abundant public spaces, there is room for everything you can do inside four walls.  The kitchen has been completely remodeled with Bosch appliances and acres of counter space. There is a large office that could be a sixth bedroom. The lower level features grand family space with tall ceilings and walls that are begging to hang your gallery of art, or perhaps host a movie screen. This room has an alcove that is perfect for game tables or exercise equipment.  There is even a wet bar downstairs for cocktail hour.

Stealing from Willy Wonka, “If you want to view paradise… Simply look around and view it.”  If we didn’t captivate you with the views alone, use your own eyes to imagine the possibilities. The room nearest the upstairs ensuite could easily be utilized to create a huge spa-like bathroom, allowing the current bathroom to become a walk-in closet. The lower level with its private side entrance can be reconfigured to accommodate a future in-law space or ADU.  And that yard!  With nearly a third of an acre of private gentle slope your own private park awaits only your inspiration.

Neighborhood


The Claremont neighborhood straddles the Berkeley and Oakland borders and features lush landscaping, curving streets that hug the canyon hills, and open space. Homes on the leafy side streets provide old-fashioned Berkeley elegance, with turn-of-the-century brown shingles, revivals, prairie-, custom contemporary-, and Tudor-styled structures offering residents a place to call home within the landscaped confines. The landmark of this area is the majestic Claremont Hotel Club & Spa, a vast Victorian edifice perched on 22 acres in the hills. Three outdoor pools, 10 tennis courts, a full-service spa, a fitness club, and three onsite restaurants deliver stunning views, and the resort has become popular with generations of locals as a luxurious getaway. Elmwood's shopping district on College Avenue in Berkeley offers old-fashioned shops, access to the Rockridge Bay Area Rapid Transit (BART), grocery stores, bookshops, and flower stands. Restaurants, a movies theater, and a bakery are all a short walk away.  The Claremont Canyon Regional Preserve is 208 acres of open space managed by the East Bay Regional Park District and more than 200 acres outside of the canyon owned by the University of California, Berkeley. Garber Park, a 13-acre oak-and-bay-tree woodland south of Claremont Avenue, is owned by the city of Oakland. Trails reward ambitious hikers with panoramic views of San Francisco Bay.
