A native, drought tolerant front yard - with lavendar and pineapple guava trees - greets you as you approach the home.

Perfect for entertaining, the dining room flows seamlessly into the updated kitchen – imagine hosting friends and family for celebrations.

In the kitchen, a combination of white and wood cabinets creates a fun space with smart recessed lighting, black quartz countertops and a suite of brand name appliances. Off the kitchen, find a charming powder room with colorful marmoleum floors, wainscoting and a cute corner sink. A bonus room is located at the back of the home and overlooks the lovely back yard…imagine a home office, makers space or guest room.

The south-facing yard is sun filled and ideal for relaxing with a favorite book, BBQing or kicking around a soccer ball. A large, flat grassy area surrounded by a variety of succulents and amazing plantings: a few olive trees, a peach tree, a plum tree, (with very abundant plums in late spring!) and an apple tree. Twinkling bistro lights dresss the yard making this a magical area. A modern storage shed located in the back corner of the yard can store bikes, camping gear, garden tools and other seasonal items.
Back inside you will find two ample sized bedrooms both of which feature hardwood floors and great closet space. Conveniently located between the two bedrooms is the spacious main bathroom which has been recently painted and includes a new light fixture and a shower over tub combination.

In Thousand Oaks, the original developers preserved ancient oak trees and left rock outcroppings intact. Elmwood, with its thriving business district, remains one of the city’s most sought-after neighborhoods. In Claremont, the Claremont Hotel, a gleaming white Victorian-era landmark, has provided generations of Bay Area residents with a luxurious getaway.
Berkeley has long been at the forefront of culinary innovation. Locals flock to the original Peet’s Coffee & Tea location.
