This updated three-bedroom home is one of two on the property. The second home includes one bedroom, one bathroom and a two-car garage.
Originally built in the 1880s, 1208 Virginia St. welcomed extensive remodeling and the addition of two bedrooms and one full bathroom in 1992. There are big windows, gleaming hardwood floors, and tall ceilings in the living room and dining area. Thereʼs a bar and large breakfast area in the kitchen, and laundry hookups in a convenient closet close by. The deck off the kitchen makes for perfect al fresco dining.
The main floor offers one bedroom and one bathroom while the upstairs offers one large open master bedroom with a large closet space, skylights and views of the Berkeley hills; the third bedroom has a stained glass window and some views of the hillside. These updates also included an improved new foundation, higher ceilings, updated systems and plumbing, insulation and extra storage space and large garage. There are also plans available to build another bedroom if needed.
Other 1990s improvements: Across the yard is a one-bedroom, one-bathroom wood-shingle home that was built with a two-car garage. This home boasts a fireplace, wraparound windows and entry deck. A long driveway, carport, and garage provide ample storage and parking space. A newer roof was installed in 2016.
