2210 Derby Street
Classic Berkeley home in the Elmwood neighborhood. Large front porch, ideal for relaxing and shooting the breeze. Formal entry features dramatic, wooden staircase leading to three large upstairs bedrooms. High ceilings showcase the box-beamed ceilings and generously sized dining and living room. Other details include window seat, classic brass hardware, stone fireplace and well proportioned vintage built-in cabinet.
New paint on the interior and exterior combine with refinished hardwood floors throughout and new oak wood flooring. Cheery kitchen has retro scalloped detailing on the cabinets and newer stainless appliances. Off the kitchen the adjoining laundry room opens to an expansive and sunny, south facing backyard. The first floor bedroom and redone bathroom are adjacent to the kitchen.
Up the artisan staircase, on the 2nd floor, are three light-filled bedrooms. The south facing master bedroom has a vaulted ceiling and tree views. The middle bedroom has a wonderful closet complete with a kids special “magic zone.”
Private, fenced backyard is handsomely landscape with native plantings and versatile for true indoor outdoor living – as there is a lawn, plus brick patio for dining and a custom redwood swing – an spot ideal for remembering why we live in the Bay Area.
The detached studio functions seamlessly as an office space, artist studio, additional guest room or true movie house. Complete with skylight, power, electric baseboard heating and a sink.
Sensational Elmwood location. Willard Park, College Ave, Berkeley Bowl, Ashby BART and the new Equinox gym are all within walking distance. This gem of a house is truly a must see.
