Live in a gorgeous, Tudor style home with elegant style in the picturesque community of the North Berkeley Hills! Perched on a high lot overlooking the tree-lined neighborhood below, with sweeping views of the Bay beyond, this incredible home features 4 bedrooms, 2.5 baths, plus bonus rooms and a 2-car garage, is unforgettable and timeless!

The home presides over a lush, well-tended yard, brimming with beautiful vegetation, blooming plants, and a thriving olive tree, with raised beds and trimmed hedges bordering the lot. An elegant and detailed brick stairway, dotted with peaked peekaboos, leads to a cozy and private patio seating area, where you can lounge and soak in your gorgeous garden and views of the entire Bay! The yard features eco friendly French drainage, using the verticality of the lot to its full advantage. Take a few more steps up the stairway to reach this Tudor-style home with its stucco exterior, peaked gables, and enviable details. 

The grand, heavy wood front door with a pointed arch and ornate brass knocker welcomes you into the foyer and sets the scene for common motifs throughout the home: gorgeous oak wood and elegant pointed arch entryways are found throughout the main home. Oak wood floors, crown molding, wood beams, and wood window frames all grace this home and create unity throughout. 

The living room is gloriously spacious, with high stucco walls and ceilings studded with ornate dark oak wood beams and rustic hanging light fixtures, accenting the oak floors and window frames. While the front window frames inviting views of the San Francisco Bay, the side windows let in light while allowing for privacy, looking out onto the high green hedges bordering the home. A fireplace of brick and stucco, with decorative shelf detailing, is the heart of this room, and acts as the comforting, cozy, timeless hearth for family to gather around throughout the year.

Across from the living room, the dining room features lovely wall sconces, oak crown molding, and stretching window views of the garden and the Bay. The dining room flows into the bright and sunny breakfast nook with views through the updated windows. Neighboring the breakfast nook and dining room are the spacious and remodeled kitchen with high vaulted ceilings, quartz stone countertops, gas stove, a large Franke single basin sink, and with stainless steel appliances including a Subzero refrigerator and Miele dishwasher. The kitchen flows seamlessly into the family room with low built-in cabinets and double French doors flowing out into the backyard, making it an extension of your living space.

Step out to the yard onto a refinished redwood deck, stretching out to a lush, sprawling lawn surrounded by raised beds of roses and blooming cover plants, Japanese maple and persimmon trees, bordered by natural stone. High hedges completely enclosing the perimeter of the yard providing serenity and privacy. A brick patio is also nestled in the yard, and to the side of the yard is a doorway to the garden on the front side of the house.

Past the double French doors and family room is a hallway leading to a half-bath and a laundry room with LG front-loading washer and dryer. The master wing is next, its own private hallway leading to a full tiled bath with separate water closet and shower, including a separate soaking tub; an office area with built-in desk faces a window looking out into the backyard garden and a walk-in closet with built-in shelves, drawers, hanging rods and shoe storage. The master bedroom boasts high vaulted 20-foot ceilings and crown molding, built-in shelving, and dual-pane windows with french door access to the back garden.

The downstairs level of the home features a large bonus room with limitless potential, practical storage closets, and access to the front yard and brick-laid patio, as well as access to the two-car garage. This two-car garage with one rustic brick wall has plenty of space for vehicles as well as a water filtration which serves the entire home, two windows to let in light, built in shelf storage, and an electric car charging portal. The bonus room leads into a basement area which also has plenty of room to store bikes, ski equipment or any of your seasonal items.

The upstairs level of the home is at the end of a hardwood staircase leading to a hardwood landing. A full tiled bath with separate water closet and separate shower with tub is completed with recessed lighting, stone countertops, built in cabinet storage, and high windows to let in light while maintaining privacy. The hallway leads off to three bedrooms: A bedroom with tall vaulted ceilings with skylight and ceiling beams, a window overlooking the peaceful backyard, and a spacious walk-in closet with high ceilings; a second bedroom with stunning views of the Bay and the front yard, two windows, and a storage closet with built-in shelving; and a third room could function as another office or guest bedroom, features a closet with built-ins, and window looking out onto the backyard’s maple tree and green lawn.

This beautiful property is positioned on a large corner lot in one of the most desirable neighborhoods in the Berkeley Hills. The elevation allows for some of the most breath taking views of the San Francisco skyline. Located close to excellent schools, shopping, and the Tilden Regional Park Reserve. You can live with convenience in comfort, style, and elegance!

Neighborhood Gallery

515 Boynton Avenue

Perched above the city and offering the best panoramic views in the entire Bay Area, North Berkeley Hills is an incredibly peaceful residential neighborhood, yet not far from the hustle and bustle of the city’s more urban areas. Homes in the neighborhood are built in a variety of styles and feature spacious patio decks, manicured lawns and lushly landscaped gardens. Depending on where you live, North Berkeley Hills residents can enjoy views of the San Francisco and Oakland skylines, the Golden Gate Bridge, Alcatraz Island, and Mount Tamalpais. For even more great views plus a variety of great outdoor activities, residents can take a short trip to nearby Tilden Regional Park. Park amenities vary between free and paid activities. Free activities available at TIlden Park include a beautiful botanical garden, the Little Farm, and nearly 40 miles of scenic hiking trails. For a small fee, the public can also swim at Lake Anza, take a spin on the Merry-Go-Round, or enjoy a round of golf at Tilden Park Golf Course. Some residents in the southern part of North Berkeley Hills are within walking distance of the thriving retail district on Solano Avenue. Featuring a wide variety of stores, shops, and plenty of great restaurants, including: Safeway Community Markets: Located at the southwest corner of Solano and Fresno Avenues, this is a great place to check off everything on your grocery list. Noor & Sons Rug Gallery: Find handcrafted Oriental Rugs for your home, as well as rug cleaning and repair services. Peet’s Coffee: It all started in Berkeley, and this location is ideal for your morning cup of coffee before you begin your commute. Additionally, foodies who love a variety of cuisines are just a short walk or drive away from the infamous Gourmet Ghetto neighborhood. Despite its elevated location, North Berkeley Hills is extremely transit-friendly. The Alameda-Contra Costa Transit District bus lines that serve the neighborhood drop residents at the Downtown Berkeley BART station for a quick commute to downtown San Francisco. Berkeley Hills residents who live near the western section of the neighborhood are less than one mile away from the heart of UC Berkeley, making it a great area for faculty and administrators to live.
