$1,800,000 575 Grizzly Peak Blvd, Berkeley, CA 94708
Tucked far off the road, with peace and privacy, in a garden of blossoms, fruit trees, koi pond and whimsical stone patios and gathering nooks, this Mid-Century by architect Walter D. Lucas has been lived in by just one family since 1954, and pleasingly refreshed to today's aesthetics, with defining features of its era preserved. Enter to open-space, cathedral ceilinged main level with new wood floors and sleek 2-sided fireplace joining large living-dining rooms. New island kitchen flows out French doors to view-facing deck. A half-flight up are 3 bedrooms, with new primary and hall baths. A half-flight down is a laundry/mudroom, open to gardens and yard. One more half-flight down is a fully finished garden level, formerly a separate-entry in-law unit, with a 4th bedroom, en suite bath, fireplaced family-room, French doors to backyard and a flex-space currently staged as an office, but previously a full kitchen (utilities retained inside the wall). Enjoy the period rosewood ceiling with integrated lighting, built-in bench seating. Garage was converted to a 1 bed/1 bath ADU. Walkable into Tilden Park, steps from AC transit. A serene, private spot for family living with options for rental income if desired.
