Berkeley Brown Shingle Townhouse
An Urban Oasis in an Amazing Location!
2012B Hearst Street, Berkeley
Listed At: $615,000
This 1992 Townhouse is a duet, a unit that shares only one wall. It is one of 12 built as infill house in an urban development around a large green common open space. There are many large leafy green trees that give it a country feel once you are within the gates. Each unit has one designated, secure parking place, accessed with a remote control.
The unit itself has the feel of a loft downstairs with large open spaces. You enter through the front door into a living room with a Bay window and a fireplace. It also has a front hall closet. There is a half bath with a new tile floor. Moving on to the kitchen and eating area and the back patio which is just big enough for a barbeque and a little garden you pass the stairway with its soaring ceiling. The kitchen is convenient and has a huge pantry/ storage closet. Upstairs there are three bedrooms: a large one with two closets and an alcove for a desk or a comfy chair for reading, a medium one and a small one sometimes used as an office. The bathroom has a closet with the stackable washer and dryer in it.
The unit gets good light from three sides. It has hardwood floors downstairs and brand new carpet upstairs. It has been freshly painted. The tiles in the half bath are new. The monthly fees are $272.00. (Monthly fees include money set aside for a whole new roof) The pest control report is $0. The General Home Inspection Report is fabulous!
It is a winner all around.
The location is unsurpassed in a busy world. There is nowhere better to be! Walk to BART, Chez Panisse or The Phoenix on Shattuck which has the best pasta in the world. Berkeley's many delicious restaurants - so many to choose from. Go to the movies, the Aurora Theater or The Berkeley Rep, The University of California, the library or the YMCA. You can catch the bus to the City or hop on the Freeway in just a couple of minutes.
This is the most well located home in all of Berkeley
if you ask me!
