Features

A quintessential Edwardian sited in the heart of Berkeley. 3106 Martin Luther King is a four plus bedroom and 2 bath home just a stones throw from BART.

This is a classically laid out two story floor-plan, with gracious old world charm and flooded with natural light. The living spaces still showcase its architectural integrity, original moldings, coved ceilings, wainscoting and intricate balustrades. Updated over time without sacrificing its inherent charm there are newer dual pane windows and gleaming oak floors. The dining room is the heart of the home, open to the living area and wrapped by a decorative wainscoting. A spacious kitchen with granite counters is equipped with stainless steel appliances and ample cabinetry. A main level bonus room makes for  wonderful extra office or place space. Upstairs is the second full bath and all four of the bedrooms. The bedrooms are spacious, bright and all circled around a nicely sized upper hallway landing. The driveway with half moon pavers leads to a two car- carport that can be used for parking, crafting or an outdoor cabana!

This charming home resides in one of Berkeley's most coveted neighborhoods, tree-lined and central. South Berkeley is bustling with activity and dubbed the "Arts district".  The art scene, foodie influx and overall community involvement make this a popular and convenient area of Berkeley. The neighborhood is rich with architecturally significant homes and mature tree-lined streets.

The proximity to local amenities is un-paralleled, its blocks from: Ashby BART, Berkeley Bowl, Whole Foods, Cafés, South Berkeley’s Farmers’ Market, shopping, Library, restaurants and theaters.

Malcolm X Elementary School yard opens to the public evenings and weekends and is a wonderful resource for families.

Neighborhood


You can't get closer to the University of California, Berkeley campus than South Berkeley, the neighborhood originally developed in the 1860s by the school’s predecessor, the College of California. The latter institution may be long gone, but the large, spacious, brown-shingled homes along Allston, Bancroft, Channing, and Dwight ways remain. Densely populated, the neighborhood contains some of the city’s oldest homes. South Berkeley is a mix of students, longtime residents, businesses, and homes. The major thoroughfares are Telegraph Avenue, Bancroft Way, and Alcatraz Avenue, where street vendors, bookstores, record shops, and inexpensive eateries cater to students. Nightlife is abundant, thanks to the proximity to campus, Zellerbach Hall, and Downtown Berkeley. Both the Ashby and Downtown Berkeley BART stations serve the neighborhood, as do a number of Alameda-Contra Costa Transit buses, making it a snap to get to downtown San Francisco, local airports, sports stadiums, and other locations in the Bay Area.
