Solid, stately, and quintessentially Berkeley, 2019 Carleton Street is an amply proportioned, four-bedroom home constructed in the heyday of abundant old-growth redwood—and artisanal craftsmanship.
Behind its inviting Cerulean blue front door, 2019 Carleton Street welcomes you to a sun-drenched home, with beautifully maintained wide-plank, walnut inlaid oak floors. The first floor features a large living room with a lovely picture window, cozy fireplace, and built-in bookshelves, a dining room, and kitchen.
If you love to entertain, the home’s huge dining room—with outdoor access to an elevated deck overlooking an enormous park-like setting, with mature fruit trees, is sure to delight. This spacious dining area is incorporated into the adjacent kitchen (featuring front-door-matching Cerulean blue cabinets) with a clever pass-through that keeps the cook close by.
Recently updated, the home’s pristine galley features bright white subway tile backsplashes, enviable storage, and counter space, complemented with modern stainless steel appliances to bring the home squarely into the 21st Century. A nearby, first-floor powder room provides convenience.
Upstairs, 2019 Carleton’s four living quarters and communal bathroom provide privacy and ease for its occupants. Gracefully curved ceilings and archways, large double-hung windows, and original built-in shelving lend each room a sense of the home’s epoch.
The main suite features a charming 4-season niche for reading and relaxing in the abundant sunshine. With a peak over the San Francisco Bay, you’ll enjoy magnificent sunsets from the second story. Remaining true to the period, the home’s upstairs bath is a gorgeous marriage of modern and vintage, with its clawfoot tub and period fixtures ensconced in sparkling white tile.
Downstairs, a finished area with kitchenette and full bath provides lodging area for friends and family, den, or a private office for professionals working from home. Moreover, 2019 Carleton’s backyard is spacious enough to accommodate an Accessory Dwelling Unit (ADU) for additional living space or attractive income opportunities.
Conveniently located near downtown Berkeley, with numerous shopping and dining opportunities, as well as the UC campus, 2019 is an ideal home for multi-generational families, faculty, and staff.
