Historically significant solar home two blocks from BART! Start your morning at Café Dejena or Subrosa Coffee, and end the day at Arthur Mac’s Tap and Snack after work—all minutes away. While this home is centrally located for biking, BART, or quick freeway access, the fresh interior and garden are an oasis of calm.

This 1912 Sears and Roebuck kit house is full of Edwardian detail. Upon entering, notice the tall ceilings: coved in the living room and bedrooms and with gorgeous box-beams in the dining room. Wood floors throughout and a freshly painted white interior warm and illuminate this sunny home full of new windows. Built-in shelves and nooks abound, and the master bedroom has a huge original walk-in closet. The kitchen features an updated butler’s pantry with new mosaic tile, an O’Keefe and Merritt stove, Bosch dishwasher, and separate laundry room. Spacious claw-foot tub in the charming remodeled bath.

A back deck with built-in bench anchors the shared rear garden, where chickens and bees peek out from wisteria, roses, and multiple fruit trees. The front garden is flooded with fragrant jasmine, succulents, and a mature magnolia tree. Permitted street parking and shared driveway and garage eliminate car hassles.
