Perched at the end of a quiet cul-de-sac, this charming upper Rockridge home retains period details with modern updates. The neighborhood is a community, where people walk dogs to the independent Village Market, have a family event or just jump in the water at the Temescal Regional Rec area. Rockridge BART, SF Bay Transit, and Market Hall are a mere mile and a half away for easy access to public transportation and all the wonderful shops and restaurants of the Rockridge Neighborhood. The brick front porch tucked behind mature hedges and a gorgeous magnolia tree greets you upon arrival, and ushers into the sunny living room: the heart of the house. The fireplace is flanked by original French doors leading out to a sophisticated little patio and back garden. Warm wood floors lead in one direction to the updated kitchen and then another to two bedrooms and a full bath. The built-in corner reading nook overlooking the garden, in the back bedroom, will make you swoon. Likewise, the skylights in the high ceiling of the primary bedroom ignite the entire space and make it a contender for best room.
