Architectually styled in 1995 with a nod to the Arts & Crafts/Berkeley brown shingle, you'll love the wonderful open living/dining/kitchen floor plan of this top floor condo with privacy afforded by no shared walls. With large east facing accent windows, the incredible light is invited in, along with the expansive Berkeley hillside views. Recessed lighting is unique to this top floor unit and the building enjoys Fiber Optic cables (allowing for Internet speeds up to 1000 Mbps!) which has been especially helpful during working from home days.
Recently refreshed kitchen has been updated with new quartz countertops and breakfast bar, large stainless steel sink and newer faucet with pull-down feature. Also fully equiped with refrigerator, range, built-in microwave, dishwasher, garbage disposal and pantry too. The in-unit washer & dryer is conveniently located at the end of the kitchen (housed in a closet).
The east facing condo enjoys early morning light and celebrates sunsets via the reflection on the expansive skyline. Unit 4E shares no walls with other units, allowing for an unusual sense of privacy given its an urban downtown condo. Both of the bedrooms access the private-use, east facing balcony: a lovely outdoor area to enjoy California living all day long. The spacious primary bedroom accesses the balcony via a glass door, while the second bedroom widely opens to the balcony by sliding glass door. An oversized refreshed bath is conveniently located at the end of the closet lined hall, next to the two gracious bedrooms. The new white subway tiled and glass-enclosed bathtub with shower also has newer stylized lighting, quartz countertop, sink, faucet and copper plumbing. Although already in a newer building, this fabulous unit has been upgraded and is ready to move in - just unpack!
You'll find everything you need for comfortable urban living in the heart of Berkeley: 1-car gated parking too! The HOA is also in the process of creating a more inviting exterior communal spot with built-in bench and fresh landscaping at the north-east side of the property, next to the bike parking area at the lobby level.
This 4th floor condominium has easy accessibility options: elevator from the front lobby, or use one of the two staircases from the garage level.

Home to one of the most prestigious universities in the country, Berkeley offers the intellectual and cultural stimulation from its campus -- which is within walking distance of downtown. Many Berkeley neighborhoods were established in the 1920s, with quiet, tree-lined streets, brown-shingled homes, and lushly landscaped yards. In Thousand Oaks, the original developers preserved ancient oak trees and left rock outcroppings intact. Elmwood, with its thriving business district, remains one of the city’s most sought-after neighborhoods. In Claremont, the Claremont Hotel, a gleaming white Victorian-era landmark, has provided generations of Bay Area residents with a luxurious getaway. Berkeley has long been at the forefront of culinary innovation. Locals flock to the original Peet’s Coffee & Tea location. For residents who like to savor their meals at home, small retail districts sprinkled throughout Berkeley allow them to shop like Europeans, going from store to store to purchase everything they need. Those in a hurry can always visit major grocery stores nearby. Neighborhood green spaces abound throughout Berkeley, from small community gardens to the Berkeley Rose Garden -- which boasts more than 3,000 rose bushes. The gem of the area is 2,000-acre Tilden Regional Park, with its miles of biking and hiking trails and the naturally landscaped swimming hole at Lake Anza.

Berkeley is also lucky to have multiple live theater offerings as well. The Berkeley Public Library on Kittredge Street has also achieved official landmark status. So much to offer!
University of California, Berkeley, is a short stroll away.

The campus is beautiful, the surrounding streets lined with restaurants of all kinds.
A Bicycle Plan was adopted by Berkeley City Council on May 2, 2017 with the purpose to make Berkeley a model bicycle-friendly city where bicycling is a safe, comfortable, and convenient form of transportation and recreation for people of all ages and abilities.
