Amazing opportunity to join the beautiful and friendly community-oriented Westbrae neighborhood in North Berkeley! Nestled on a quiet street (with no through traffic), this sweet, airy 2-bedroom, 1-bath storybook Victorian features high ceilings, tall windows, refurbished hardwood floors throughout, and lots of light. With its peaked roof, charming front porch, and vegetable garden, you will always feel welcomed home.

Lovingly and meticulously restored, the bathroom boasts modern plumbing and fixtures in period style including tank-with-chain-pull toilet and claw foot tub. The kitchen and separate laundry room are updated with contemporary appliances and durable custom concrete countertops that provide 21st century convenience while harmonizing with the look of this turn-of-the-20th-century abode. Easy flow between the spacious living room and formal dining room invite entertaining. An as-yet undeveloped attic space offers options for future expansion.

From the kitchen, a pair of French doors opens onto a secluded, sunny deck and charming garden, with an enormous garage/artist studio/shop space behind. A craftsperson’s dream, this fully-renovated structure is two stories tall and wired for 210-voltage. Double swing-doors in front and a large roll-up door along the back wall provide entry/exit for two cars or other vehicles, furniture, equipment, and projects, as well as additional ventilation.

Attached to the garage/studio, a separate unit with kitchenette and bathroom provides yet another location for work or artistic endeavors and/or accommodates visiting family and friends.

With a walkability score of 83 and a biking score of 98, Fourteen-Sixteen Neilson is centrally-located, close access to shops, restaurants, nightlife, and public transportation. Monterey Market, Westbrae Beer Garden, Gioia Pizzeria, Monterey Fish Market, and a large community garden with available plots, are all practically just around the corner!
