Serene Upper Rockridge Colonial
Nestled on a picturesque one-block lane in Upper Rockridge, this classic Monterey Colonial has been in the same family for over 55 years. This stately Traditional enjoys lovely views in all directions from sun-drenched rooms that sparkle from newly refinished hardwood floors. When in need of urban conveniences, you are only a mile to the café and fine groceries at Village Market and the shopping, dining and activities in Montclair Village.
Set back from the serene street, a brick pathway leads you past a front lawn to a welcoming foyer with center staircase. The living room enjoys a beamed ceiling, center fireplace flanked by built-ins and abundant natural light from front and back windows. The adjacent dining room is perfect for holiday gatherings and features views of the surrounding hillside and Berkeley skyline. The generous eat-in kitchen is the hub of the home and opens to a private deck, the spot for outdoor grilling, entertaining and dining under the stars. Interior access to the two-car garage is conveniently located off the kitchen and makes for easy loading and unloading of children, groceries and Costco runs.
Upstairs are three bedrooms and two baths including a primary suite with walk-in closet and a private front terrace. Downstairs is a spacious family room with a second fireplace, perfect for daily living, sleepover parties and movie nights. An additional room with elegant architectural details has served as a home office for decades. Completing the lower level is a laundry room with built-in storage and sink.
A fenced rear yard can be accessed from the main and lower levels and has something for everyone. The brick patio is your lounging area or entertaining space. A level lawn is adjacent for play. With a little TLC, this could be the site of your new edible garden or play structure.
At just over two miles to Rockridge BART and close to public transportation and freeway access, you can be on your way to nearly everywhere in the Bay Area in minutes. And with UC Berkeley and regional parks nearby, this location can’t be beat. Now is the time to transform 5879 Saint Paul Court into your place to call home.
