The old adage “buy the worst house in the best neighborhood” rings true in this never-before-on-the-market home. 858 Santa Barbara Road is that increasingly rare Berkeley “fixer-upper” in an exceedingly coveted neighborhood.
Don’t let the peeling paint distract from the absolute potential of a 1920’s era home—it'll be worth every penny to restore to its “Glory Days.” Constructed during the heyday of abundant old-growth redwood, the structure's solid “bones” are apparent wherever you look.
And then, there are the San Francisco Bay views from nearly every room in the house.
With large, inviting rooms, flooded with natural light, let your imagination take hold in creating a bespoke home to call your own. An unfinished basement provides added potential for storage, or additional living quarters.
Conveniently located near award-winning Berkeley schools, BART, shopping and dining districts, this home is unlikely to obtain financing. However, similar homes in this neighborhood have fetched astronomical sales prices in the recent past, so, if you have a long-term vision in Bay Area real estate investing, this might be an ideal opportunity.
