Discover one of North Berkeley's most serene settings, where you'll find two magical homes on one beautifully landscaped parcel in Thousand Oaks! Explore the spacious and gracious five-bedroom Craftsman from 1920, plus a delightful one-bedroom creekside cottage, added in 1938. Set in luscious park-like gardens, this sunny property feels so far away, yet is part of a wonderfully vibrant community.
Over the years, this enchanting property has welcomed extended families, long-term guests and provided supplemental income from the private cottage. As working at home becomes normal, this flexible arrangement could be just the answer.
The inside-outside flow is captivating, with several secluded garden "rooms". These verdant spots are ideal for eating, entertaining and just enjoying peaceful natural surroundings day or night -- there's tasteful garden lighting!
With sunlight streaming in through classic windows, and the garden calling to you, the setting is enjoyable year-round. These homes have been thoughtfully updated and lovingly maintained over the years, keeping their unique character, original details and whimsical vibe.

A little more about the secluded Creekside Cottage:
Centrally located, this coveted neighborhood is close to many popular shops, restaurants and cafes on nearby Solano Avenue and El Cerrito Plaza. The G and 79 buses stop on the corner, so easy SF commutes and trips to BART, bustling Solano Ave, Downtown Berkeley Arts District and beyond can begin and end at your door step.
Of course, all of Berkeley's wonders are close by, with Oakland, San Francisco and freeways only mintes away. Biking and hiking opportunities are easy to find, too, with many wonderful parks and trails to enjoy. There's even a sweet little shop-and-eat "village" two blocks away at Kensington Circle, with Colusa Market, Benchmark Pizza, Semifreddi Bakery/coffee, a fun pub and a terrific Sunday farmer's market. It's all so convenient...with so much more to discover!
