Just off College Avenue in the heart of Elmwood sits 2718 Russell Street, greeting you with elegant multi-light muntin windows and a spacious entry deck with an arbor and built-in seats. The home provides 3 bedrooms, flooded with natural light, a remodeled bathroom that mixes contemporary and vintage aesthetics, as well as an eat-in kitchen. There are wonderful features including the rich mahogany-colored, beveled wood finishes in both the formal living and dining rooms, as well as a grand fireplace with cornice detail and built-in cabinetry.
The finished garage* was used as an art studio by the previous owner and is a wonderful space off of the rear yard, perfect for a home office or other potential uses.* The outdoor areas are crafted for lounging, outdoor meals, or entertaining with room to grow and nurture.
Elmwood offers quality eateries, bakeries and shops, while also being dense with the charming and refined architecture that Berkeley is famed for. Minutes to amenities such as the Claremont Hotel, Rockridge shops and BART, this home is close to it all.
*Permit status for the finished garage is unknown, buyer to investigate with the city and verify use. Neither seller nor listing agent has verified the accuracy of any of these sources of information.
The much sought-after neighborhood of Elmwood has a rich architectural history. Early 20th-century houses, estates, and some of the more notable homes designed by prominent turn-of-the-century Bay Area architect Julia Morgan can be found in this neighborhood.
The local shopping district centered on the intersection of College and Ashby avenues is a bustling hive of activity, featuring an array of gourmet eateries, boutique shops, cafes, and restaurants. Residents of Elmwood also enjoy an easy walk to public transportation, a library, and parks. For an only-in-Elmwood, experience, visit Mrs. Dalloway's, a shop that combines a bookstore and garden supplies, or Rialto Cinemas Elmwood, a Berkeley city landmark that houses a three-screen cinema.
In terms of hyperlocal culture, Julia Morgan Theatre offers camps and classes as well as performances of music, dance, and theater throughout the year.
