A Connection to All that is Valued
At 922 Stannage connection to vibrant life abounds through the sanctuary of the open, flowing three bedroom and one and a half bath floor plan and its relation to the outside world found in the lavish backyard complete with a lounge-worthy deck off the kitchen’s adjoining family room and in the expansive amenities on Solano Avenue steps from the front door.
The spaciousness of this home is hinted at when pulling into the large, four plus car driveway and two car garage, which could be amended to create a sumptuous outdoor living space opening to the lush and level backyard. Entertaining is a dream with the large, three-panel French doors allowing the kitchen-family room to flow effortlessly to the backyard for warm weather gatherings. The kitchen is breezy with a large island, complete with counter seating, ready for new experiments or old favorites. With a five-burner stovetop, plenty of counter space and cabinet storage there’s room to house all the cooks a kitchen can carry!
Entering from the front door finds a convenient entry space, perfect for a warm welcome before stepping into the living room which features loving details like the alcove with natural wood-framed windows and sweet niche which separates the living and dining area. Soft, natural light floods the space uniting the living and dining rooms with windows both east and south facing allowing the perfect balance of light and warmth.
The entry level is also home to a large bedroom and full bathroom with separate shower and jetted-bathtub. Ascending the stairs, one finds even more natural light-soaked bedrooms with peaceful views of the Berkeley hills. Serviced by a half bath, the upper floor could easily be turned into a master retreat with a bonus room to be used as an office, art studio, or workout room.
This house is ready to serve as your home sanctuary. The open flow facilitates connected living while the sanctuary of private rooms remains. Should your days beyond your home run long and cooking is just not in the cards, the cuisines of the world are mere steps from your door (or en route home). No matter where your day takes you, convenience is the name of the game. Located midway between El Cerrito and North Berkeley BART stations, and less than a mile from the transbay H line bus stop, crossing the bay is a breeze. When you prefer to cook at home, the best of the bay’s grocery stores are 5 minutes or less from your door including local favorites Tokyo Fish Market, Whole Foods, Sprouts, Berkeley Natural Grocery, and Safeway. Beginning your mornings with some of the best french pastries this side of the Seine could be your routine with Patissere Rotha less than half a mile away. When you need to get away from the crowds or work off the morning’s croissant, nature is near. The Albany Hill and Bulb, great for dog walking and watching, are within a few minutes distance as are a plethora of neighborhood parks. Should you want to work your muscles a bit more, hiking and biking trails are a short distance away. No matter how far you go, home is where you return. Offering a respite from the world, 922 Stannage maintains its connection to all that is valued.
