Known as the Edwin L. Angwin House, this gracious brown-shingle four bedroom, three and one-half bath home was built in 1909, and has many additional rooms including a family room, office, sunroom, an expansive finished attic with exposed wood beams and a free-standing Accessory Dwelling Unit with an additional full bath in the level backyard.

A traditional floor plan makes this home optimally functional. The entryway immediately exudes warmth and appeal. The spacious living room benefits from numerous windows and a fireplace. A large dining room has painted panel molding and a second fireplace, adding further to the ambiance of the home. Adjacent to the dining room is the den/office, another inviting area in which to relax. A family, half-bath, laundry room and a capacious eat-in country style kitchen that opens directly onto the deck and backyard are all on this primary level. The garage has been skillfully remodeled and serves the ADU.

A wide staircase ascends to the second floor with its commodious hallways and four large bedrooms, all with ample closet and storage space, and conveniently located and well-spaced for privacy. There are two full baths on this floor and the enormous finished attic is easily accessed through the comfortable staircase in the hallway.

Mature rose bushes adorn the front garden, and raised vegetable planter boxes in the backyard connect seamlessly to the wide wooden deck.

Long loved and cherished by its long-term residents, the original craftsman details endure throughout. The property sits in Berkeley’s prized and charming Elmwood neighborhood, on a splendid street, with quick access to College Avenue and the amenities of Berkeley and Rockridge, shops, restaurants, local businesses and the nearby Claremont Resort and Spa.

Graceful and charming, with a desirable and balanced floorplan, 2955 Piedmont Avenue is a home you can live in happily and comfortably while exploring options for updating, a vision that is easy to grasp given the undeniable quality and character already in place. In this outstanding location, one can envision this home for a lifetime, with room to expand into creative territory and embrace any new owners’ personal vision.
