Welcome home to this 4BR, 3.5BA Colonial, filled with California history and brimming with potential! Offered for sale for the first time in over half a century, this unique property was the home to the granddaughter of California’s 18th governor, Henry Harrison Markham. The main level features a grand center entrance, living room, formal dining room, half bathroom and kitchen with access to the deck and yard. The upstairs includes an owners’ suite, along with two additional bedrooms and a hall bathroom. The lower level offers upside with a bedroom and bathroom, as well as a utility room which could serve as a family room. The expansive yard, anchored by a mighty redwood, is terraced upslope with multiple areas to garden, meditate and survey your property from an upper deck.
The property is located in a sylvan setting around the corner from Berkeley’s Terrace View Park. Only moments from UC Berkeley and Lawrence Berkeley National Lab, the property is also conveniently accessible to downtown Berkeley BART via AC Transit 65, Tilden Park and various locations in Lamorinda without ever taking the freeway!
