Stroll down Regent Street and you’ll notice a stately looking Colonial Revival  home at 2633.  Grand in its own right, it belies the rest of the story.  For through the gate you’ll find another private garden with a brown shingle Craftsman and separate brown shingle cottage.

A Family Enclave in the Heart of the Elmwood

 

Built in the early 1900’s, this enclave is typical of the large extended family spreads of the “Hillegass Tract,” of which this a part.  It seems after the 1906 earthquake, San Franciscans were coming in droves to Berkeley.  Just as they do today. This area was especially sought after … it was close to College Avenue, and it had larger than normal lots and grander homes than a lot of Berkeley

In this case, the front house of 2633 has grand rooms, with  5  bedrooms, great details and is ready to be restored to its former glory.  The brown shingle Craftsman in the rear garden is true “Berkeley” style … with wooded paneling and details, larger open living room with fireplace and 3 bedrooms and a loft.    And the brown shingle cottage is perfect for guests, tenants or ricochet “twenty somethings.” 

The family enclave at 2633 Regent is being offered for sale for $1,495,000.   And it’s now ready for families of all definitions to make it a home of their own.

For a private showing of this home,  just give us  a call:  510-847-2409.
