Set on a peaceful street, this delightful dwelling charms with its white wood shingles and chic charcoal gray trim. The front garden greets you with the scent of lavender and the sight of colorful flowers. A stone path guides to the playful blue door and opens to the bright foyer enriched with open, wood beam ceilings. Light shines through two skylights, built into the high ceilings, that establish an expansive, cheerful feel. Next to the foyer is a sunny office with ample workspace, plus a secret hideout play area under the stairs, making it for all. Bamboo floors guide you into the open living and dining room, graced with light from sliding glass doors. The dining room opens to a spacious deck, with room for outdoor dining and relaxing. Across from the living and dining room is the elegantly redesigned kitchen with distressed gray wood panel walls, chef’s range, and beaming quartz countertops. A large island inhabits the center of the kitchen with extra space for meal prep or a lovely dining spot. Finishing out this floor are a spacious laundry room, two additional bedrooms, one with a private deck and access to the back yard, and a lovely redesigned full bathroom.
A charming staircase next to the kitchen leads to a huge family room with soaring ceilings and large windows with views of the surrounding hills and greenery. The vaulted wooden ceiling gives the room a warm, airy, loft-like feel. This area of the home delights with a walk-in closet and a look-out area of the hills through an attractive, arched window. Connected to the family room is the primary bedroom, filled with natural light from skylights. Inviting French doors open to a private balcony for a breath of fresh air and pleasant views of the lush hillside. The adjacent bathroom is a show-stopper with a vaulted ceiling, modern double vanity, large soaking tub, Onsen spa shower, and frameless shower door.
The outdoor spaces in this home are just as wonderful as the inside. Step out onto the deck off of the dining area and soak up the East Bay sun. Flowing from the deck are steps to a stone path that gracefully guide you into the grassy lawn and patio beneath a mature Meyer lemon tree, where you can take in the smell of jasmine while entertaining guests or simply reading a good book. A convenient paver path guides along the side of the house and into the front yard.
Charming in its style, location, and multiple access points to the outdoors, this cheerful residence will rejoice and make you feel right at home. Its proximity to hiking, the Marina Bay, and BART make it an ideal spot for a getaway to nature or San Francisco and beyond.
Surrounded by tree-lined hills, views of the San Francisco Bay, and located just a few miles from the shoreline, El Cerrito is a beautiful town in the Bay Area. The neighborhoods in El Cerrito reflect the town’s Mid-century charm and appeal; and although most of the homes look like they were built in the 1940s and 1950s, they have been updated to satisfy modern tastes! The area is rich in music history as well: El Cerrito is the birthplace of John Fogerty and the famous rock band known as Creedence Clearwater Revival.
El Cerrito is one of the best places in the Bay Area to raise a family. With early education schools such as Children’s Garden Montessori plus several great elementary schools, middle schools, and El Cerrito High Schools, your kids will have plenty of great learning opportunities. The community is also ideally located for UC Berkeley students and faculty. A short trip from the El Cerrito del Norte station can have you on campus in 20 minutes.
Whether you love golf, hiking, or several other outdoor activities, El Cerrito has an option for you. Berkeley Country Club has been a staple in the community for nearly 100 years, and its beautiful 18-hole golf course provides breathtaking panoramic views of the Bay Area Bridge. Hikers love Hillside Natural Area; provides over 100 acres of open grasslands, and is a great place to take your dog on a walk. If you prefer to take your dog to a park where they can interact with other furry friends, Point Isabel Dog Park is a great option.
El Cerrito Plaza, located near the intersection of San Pablo Ave and Fairmount Avenue, serves several purposes. First, it is El Cerrito’s premier shopping center; stores include a Lucky supermarket, a CVS, a Verizon store, and several popular fast food restaurants. It also features a BART station which makes commuting to and from San Francisco super convenient.
Locals skip the bland national chains and opt for long standing local burger and dog joints like Big Al’s, Nation’s Giant Burgers (HQ’d in EL C) and Caspers Hot Dogs. Some days feel right out of the 1950’s when residents can enjoy a Nation’s Giant Burger, then head across the street to check out a flick at the art deco Cerrito Theater (built in 1937).
If you’re craving more than just fast food, you will be amazed at the diverse array of local restaurants. Notable restaurants in El Cerrito include:
The Junket: Enjoy a unique fusion of German and British cuisine when you visit this unique deli in El Cerrito.
Larb Thai Food & Tapas: One of the Bay Area’s highest rated Thai restaurants, locals and residents alike enjoy both the food and the atmosphere.
El Mono: Savor the flavors of authentic Peruvian cuisine in a relaxed atmosphere while gazing at the artwork on the walls.
From great food and shopping to convenient access to public transit, plus scenic views at every turn, El Cerrito has it all!
