You know that feeling when you walk into a house, and it just feels like HOME? Maybe it’s the layout that fits your lifestyle like a glove, or the backyard that’s waiting for an al fresco dinner party. Maybe it’s the dazzling kitchen that makes you want to break out the sourdough starter and get baking. Whatever gives you that cozy sense of home, you’re sure to find it at 1531 Elm Street––a mid-century 2 Bedroom home located in the heart of El Cerrito!

Tastefully updated inside and out, 1531 Elm welcomes you with an organic color palette, drought tolerant landscaping, all complemented by the vibrant pop of orange from the new front door. A sign of what awaits inside!

This 2 bedroom, 1 bathroom mixed layout includes an open living/dining room, separate updated kitchen, and laundry room. Both bedrooms receive ample natural light from corner windows, giving them excellent versatility for a home office, sitting room, media room, or whatever else you might need it for.

Throughout the living space, you’re sure to appreciate the modern updates: from the durable laminate floors and elegant white trim, to the Edison bulb light fixtures and dual-pane windows. But the best update of all has to be the kitchen. With its quartz countertops, stainless steel appliances, under-mount sink, glass cabinetry, and those ever important counter outlets––all your next dinner party is missing is you and your guests!

Then there’s the backyard. Whether you want to read away an afternoon with a rhododendron, wisteria, and flowering camellia tree as your company, or whether you want to host guests for a BBQ under the pergola on the wood deck––this space will become your retreat with garden space and river rock pathways!

Last but certainly not least, 1531 Elm Street offers you the chance to live right in the heart of El Cerrito. Check off that grocery list at Safeway. Check out the neighborhood eats like Gangnam Tofu Korean, Tashi Delek, and Los Moles. Hop on the BART (2 blocks away) and zip down to Berkeley, Oakland, and more! Go for a jog up the Ohlone Greenway. Explore the hiking trails of Tilden Regional Park. Play tennis around the corner at Castro Park, or a round of golf at the Berkeley Country Club. The possibilities are endless at this prime location in El Cerrito! And when you want to get out of dodge, rest assured you’ll have easy access to I-80 and I-580 from your attached 1-car garage!
