A Bay View from a Berkeley Point of View
As the story goes, in 1866 a trustee from the College of California stood on a precipice overlooking the Bay and recited a few lines from the poetry of George Berkeley, “Westward, the course of the empire takes its way.” And so Berkeley was born.
That’s the feeling you get from the charming home at 32 Fairlawn Drive in the Berkeley Hills. Neighborly in character, it looks out on the Bay, its three bridges … and the world from a Berkeley point of view.
Inside the home has been tastefully updated throughout … while still maintaining its “forties” character. Overlooking the view, the comfortable living room with fireplace welcomes you. The kitchen has been tastefully updated with Shaker cabinets, quartz countertops and stainless steel appliances. It opens to the backyard patio for dining and lush backyard for play, contemplation and gardening.
In addition to two downstairs bedrooms and updated bath, upstairs a delightful master suite opens to a private deck and grassy lawn area. A couple steps, and a second patio gives you a place to sun and entertain.
It’s your own oasis with the world at your feet. Quintessentially, Berkeley.
