1470 Campus Drive
Enjoy tranquility and a close connection with nature in this 2 bedroom, 1 bath home nestled in a sylvan setting in the Berkeley Hills. From this comfortable retreat you’ll experience the best of both worlds: the serenity of life in the Hills while being surprisingly close to local amenities. It’s only a 5-minute drive to Gourmet Ghetto with its specialty shops, markets and cafés. And it’s even closer to the UC Campus! Terrace View and Tilden Parks are close at hand, with convenient public transportation available nearby on Grizzly Peak, easily taking you to downtown Berkeley, to BART and beyond.
This cottage is tucked away down a garden path away from the street. From the front door you can see through to the mature trees in the back garden. The open floor plan with abundant windows and multiple French doors surrounds you with verdant vistas. The spacious living and dining area features a wood-burning fireplace, and is connected to the kitchen by a breakfast bar with new quartz counter; it’s the perfect spot for guests to hang out while a meal is prepared. The charming kitchen with vintage Wedgewood stove opens to a wrap-around redwood deck allowing for indoor-outdoor entertaining, or just a relaxing cup of coffee while overlooking your extensive garden below. The spacious deck, and brick patios in both front and back gardens, provide numerous sites to savor the handsome plantings and impressive trees of this exceptionally deep garden. Or just listen to the songs of the many visiting birds, or watch the local wildlife!
