Description:

Known as the R.S. Heaton House, this Mediterranean, of rare Mission Revival Style, sits a coveted street and has a stately presence that commands attention. Stylistically the balance of original and updated features are in balance. Built in 1906 this home was designed with a surprisingly open floor plan where the entry, living room, and dining room form a wonderful space for entertaining and gathering. On this first level there is a gracious office as well as a guest bedroom and an additional split bathroom.

The spacious upstairs has three bedrooms and two bathrooms.

Perfect for entertainment is an oversized deck that spills out into a large, sunny backyard. The Cottage in the backyard was built in 2009 from the ground up, is light and airy, and adds to the versatility of this home. Located in the Elmwood neighborhood—only one block to College Avenue shops, restaurants, and bakeries, and close to three BART stations, near UC campus and Downtown Berkeley, local parks, and schools.

A truly special home in an amazing location!
