A dynamic Mid-Century home located on the border of El Cerrito and Albany, this three-bedroom, two-bathroom beauty has been impeccably maintained. This single-level stunner designed by local Northern California architect, John Rolf Hattam, is a site-driven home nestled into the natural topography of its verdant creek side setting. Wrapping around a central, newly retrofitted IPE deck, this home seamlessly blends indoor and outdoor living, accessing the deck by sliding glass doors from the kitchen, living room, and primary suite.
The entryway welcomes you with the light of frosted glass and the warmth of exposed beam construction throughout the entire home. A sprawling living room boasts a marble fireplace and lofty ceiling height. Poised for hosting family dinners, a beautifully reimagined kitchen has quartz counters, stainless-steel appliances, and sliding glass doors that open to the side yard with a refurbished vintage concrete sink. A fully glassed-in hallway beams warmth and daylight, ushering you past a beautifully updated bathroom, laundry area, two gracious bedrooms, and finally, an impressive primary suite with skylight, en-suite bath, built-in platform bed, and sliding glass doors to the outdoor deck.
This exquisite home has been upgraded with dual pane windows, a radiant heat system, and an energy-efficient insulated foam roof. Equipped with a two-vehicle carport, with car charge option and storage shed with bicycle docking, this stunning property also includes a newly hardscaped/terraced back patio beneath the shade of a mature redwood tree, and an additional storage and boiler room wrapped in vertical redwood siding.
Conveniently located just a few blocks from Solano Avenue’s shops and eateries, 1 Carmel Avenue is 3 blocks from the Kensington Farmers Market, and 1/2 a block from Albany Memorial Park’s play structures, picnic areas, pools, dog park, and tennis courts for weekend fun.
