Calling all investors and flippers. Located in Berkeley’s Southwest neighborhood, this home is in need of a complete remodel. The property sits on a quiet cross-street, tucked away from the main road and is centrally located to some of the best restaurants, shopping, and parks that Berkeley, and Oakland have to offer. The very sought after Berkeley Bowl is less than a mile away! Just four blocks away, this home is located near the newly revived San Pablo Park which is home to a tennis club, recreation sports, fields, and playgrounds.
Built in 1923, this fixer has the potential to be a dream home. Inside, the space offers original oak hardwood floors, a spacious open living and dining area with the potential for an open kitchen floor plan, two good sized bedrooms on the main floor and an additional bedroom upstairs, and one bathroom. The spacious eat-in kitchen offers a breakfast nook with a sliding door out to a small sitting porch and a large backyard, from the kitchen there are stairs that lead down to a family room and a spacious basement.
The generously-sized lot includes an expansive backyard with a large driveway leading to a two car garage. The backyard has potential to be a great outdoor entertaining area once revived with new landscaping and an outdoor seating area. This home is conveniently located to Berkeley Marina, freeways, North Berkeley BART, and all the great shopping on University Drive and 4th Street.
