Clean, classic craftsman bungalow. Sunny and tastefully updated with an outstanding garden. Ideal Albany location - a mere stone’s throw to all that Solano Avenue has to offer.
The attention to detail of this carefully maintained home is refreshing, everything from the art nouveau door handle to the clean interior lines, to the gorgeous hardwood floors. The well-proportioned cheerful living room has built-in bookshelves surrounding the refurbished fireplace and mantel, making this an ideal room for relaxing and unwinding. The dining room is spacious enough to hold a dinner party but still intimate for everyday meals. Natural light pours in through southwest-facing windows. The period built-in buffet holds and displays all your attractive knickknacks along with the essentials.
West-facing windows are found in the sensible, useful and updated kitchen, which has been furnished with high quality appliances such as Bosch and Fisher and Paykel. Handsome cabinetry stores it all. The pantry area off the kitchen provides additional storage and laundry space.
Three peaceful bedrooms are found along the east side of the home. Each is well proportioned with nicely sized closets. Enjoy leafy views from all the windows. The classic bathroom was updated in 2010 – it is tidy and practical.
The Detached garage could be the ultimate gear room and workshop. The rustic feel of the exterior is showcased by older carriage doors.
Being outside is made even better by the delightful variety of mature plantings. The result is a verdant cornucopia punctuated by outside nooks for taking it all in. Have dinner on the outside patio amongst the bamboo, admire the subtle changes of color or simply get lost in a book on the grass. Hone your green thumb in the raised bed. A truly special and one-of-a-kind private outdoor experience.
Leave the car at home – no really, leave the car at home. 1501 Marin Ave. offers true proximity to sensational Solano Avenue and its positive shopping vortex. Food shopping and errands are a breeze - coffee shops abound, quality dining choices are plentiful and so much more. Solano Park, Thousand Oaks Tot Park, Albany Library, and Flowerland nursery are just a few of the places locals dwell. North Berkeley BART station and bus lines are nearby.
