Exquisite Home

Originally built in the 1880s, 1208 Virginia St welcomed extensive, tasteful remodeling and the addition of two bedrooms, one full bath in1992. The refreshing new layout covered both floors of this Berkeley Bungalow. Big windows, gleaming hardwood floors and tall ceilings make the living room and dining area ideal for holiday gatherings with friends and family. There’s a bar and large breakfast area in the bright kitchen, and laundry hookups in a convenient closet close by. The deck off the kitchen makes for perfect al fresco dining.
The main floor offers one bedroom and one bath while the upstairs offers one large open master bedroom with a large closet space, skylights and views of the Berkeley Hills; the third bedroom has a stained glass window and some views of the hillside. These updates also included an improved new foundation, higher ceilings, updated systems and plumbing, insulation and extra storage space and large garage. The result is a beautiful blending of old-world charm with the sophistication of the new. There are also plans available to build another bedroom if needed.
Other improvements that came in the 1990s: Across a very pretty yard an adorable 1 bedroom/1 bath wood shingle home was built with a two-car garage. This comfortable home boasts a fireplace, wrap-around windows and entry deck. Both structures enjoy lovely tree-top views. A long driveway, car port, and garage provide ample storage and parking space, newer roof installed in 2016.

Locals flock to the original Peet’s Coffee & Tea location.
