Do you regret not getting into Berkeley?

Well now you can!  And it’s only going to cost you $788,000.  But don’t expect a diploma. Up for sale this week is an amazing home, perfect for either a freshmen homebuyer or those who have graduated to the next level.  This unique property can be used for many purposes:

·      2 separate houses (one to live in and the other to signify the beginning of your new career as a landlord)
·      A compound for your mini-militia
·      A house so close to your office, you can walk to work in your slippers
·      A great way to keep your Mother-In-Law at arm’s (or in this case: yard’s) length

2419 Berkeley represents the best that the East Side has to offer.  For the price of admission, you get a meticulously maintained California bungalow, set back and way above the street for optimal privacy, plus a second 1 bedroom, 1 bathroom bungalow, equally as quaint and purposefully restored as the main house. Between the two is a mini-sanctuary replete with sustainable landscaping and relaxing serenity.

Upon entering the charming 2+2 it is clear that although built in 1924, it has been optimized for modern living.  With a great flow and a warm, inviting aura, one can’t help falling in love with the place.

One attribute I find particularly compelling about this property is that although there is a bit of a walk up the stairs to the front door, it will only be your guests who have to suffer the minor workout.  The garage is accessed from an alleyway on the same level as the houses themselves.  Thus, the property is very secure, and private; a safe haven in the midst of this cruel city.

This home will sell quickly.  Let me know if you want to see it!
