2228 Carleton, Berkeley, CA 94704
If you love the classic houses of the East Bay, then this quintessential Berkeley home at 2228 Carleton Street might be the one for you.
Built in the early 20th century, this charmingly cheerful Craftsman features well proportioned, spacious rooms, wood and tile floors throughout.
Entertain in style in an inviting living room, or dazzle your diners in a grand, formal living room with period-perfect built-ins for your fine china - (or collection of Fiestaware) and a cozy fireplace that will keep the conversations going on those chilly East Bay evenings.
Take your daily meals in the eat-in kitchen - or dine al fresco - you're just steps from a truly idyllic backyard. A butler’s pantry with sink adds convenience near the kitchen area, and the laundry is close by too.
2228 Carleton’s upper level features four bedrooms (including the master suite) each with verdant views of the neighborhood. Beautifully updated, the home’s personal living quarters offer sun-drenched rooms for each of its occupants.
Out in the back is a veritable private paradise, with mature plantings, landscaped gardens, and pebble walkways. You can give your green thumb a workout too. Raised beds and plenty of sunshine will have you growing your own “food forest” in this balmy Berkeley Banana belt.
The home’s driveway can hold two cars in tandem, so you won’t be hunting for parking. A freestanding garage at the rear of the house provides opportunities to express yourself artistically, or a she/he shed.
2228 Carleton gets an 87 for walkability, and a cyclist’s paradise score of 99! Near BART and the Berkeley Bowl, this terrific brown shingle home is also close to shops, restaurants and services, and an easy bike ride or stroll to the happening neighborhoods along Shattuck and Telegraph Avenues, to the UC campus, and much more.
