This Berkeley duplex is just right for partners or an owner who wants some income. The house was raised by the current owner in 1994 to add the second unit.
Each unit has two bedrooms and one bath.
The upper unit is 904 sq. ft. and the lower unit has 806 sq. ft. An additional 100 square feet downstairs is used for shared storage and laundry room.
The owner says that "almost every square inch has been remodeled adding unique touches like imported tile, natural paint finishes, new double-pane windows with hardwood sills and blinds".
Other upgrades include, new appliances, new paint upstairs and downstairs, new carpet downstairs, a newly graveled driveway and sewer lateral replacement.
The garden is indeed magical with a lawn and granite patio surrounded by a pond and many rare perennials. It has a lemon, apples, plum, aprium, and Japanese persimmon trees, as well as a berry patch and a vegetable garden. It is well equipped with 5 irrigation valves on timers and a hot tub with a cold shower nearby. There is also electricity throughout the yard for the fountain in the pond, the straw bale meditation hut, and the shed.
Situated close to Emeryville and West Berkeley neighborhood shops on San Pablo and Fourth Street, it is easy to get almost anywhere from this location.
