Lovely Albany Bungalow in Westbrae
Located in desirable Albany on the Berkeley border sits an updated two bedroom and two bathroom bungalow. The attractive front yard sets the stage; you are greeted by the succulent garden and a flagstone path leads you to the farmhouse porch complete with a dutch door. Enter into the formal living room anchored by the attractive wood burning fireplace. Pass through to the open kitchen/dining room. This bright sunny kitchen has shaker style wood cabinets, tiled counter tops, stainless steel appliances and spanish Saltillo tile floors. The hallway leads to a full bathroom with vintage details including pedestal sink and hexagonal tile floors. Two bedrooms are at the end of the hall including a master bedroom suite. Pamper yourself in the luxurious master bathroom newly installed in 2015. Designed with a spacious shower, skylight and a modern custom vanity. You will love it! In addition there's a loft space great for an office or guest room and interior access to the garage and laundry area. Mosey out back to a flat grassy back yard with a flagstone patio great for California outdoor dining. Perfect for play or relaxing.
Neighborhood: With a Walkscore of 85 and a Bikescore of 97 (flat as a pancake) the location offers easy access to numerous dining and shopping areas.
* Food...wow, so much to choose from. Groceries are a breeze with Sprouts, Berkeley Natural Grocers and Monterey Market nearby. Scrumptious restaurants are plentiful with the iconic LaLimes for special celebrations. Brunch at Stella Nonna (bottomless mimosas), coffee aficionados will love Coffee Conscious and summertime fun around the fire-pit at Westbrae Biergarten where you can bring your well behaved pooch too. You can also find a burgeoning artist community and new businesses filling the warehouses with breweries, wine shops and eclectic shopping. Sunday afternoons you can find fun times at Fieldwork Brewery or enjoy First Friday celebrations at Donkey and Goat Winery with live music.
* At the corner you will find the popular Tot Lot for the kiddos and within a few blocks is Terrace Park or get in your outdoor activities at 5 acre Cedar Rose Park offering 5 sport courts and a tot-play area for the wee ones. Cesar Chavez park is also nearby if you are looking to fly a kite, throw a frisbee or take the pooch (huge leash free dog area.)
* Commuters will appreciate close proximity to BART (1 mile to N.Berk BART), freeway options, as well as popular casual carpool or transbay commuter bus to SF. So much to explore and do just outside the front door.
