A true Mid-Century home- born in 1950

A true Mid-Century home, born in 1950 but shines bright with an art deco flair, sits strong in the heart of El Cerrito, just minutes to BART, the Hillside Natural area, fun shops, restaurants, and our awesome Banter Wine Bar! 

Only two stairs up to the front door as you are welcomed into this home. The entryway leads you to a welcoming foyer, followed by a spacious living room with a fireplace. A formal dining room adjacent to the kitchen marries the incredible preserved charm with practical updates. Updated appliances silhouette the character-filled kitchen with its basketweave tile to the fun retro floors, and don’t forget the curved walls with fabulous unique built-ins perfectly preserved and adding so much originality.

The home offers 3 bedrooms, and 2 bathrooms - including a newly refreshed primary en-suite that faces the yard just calling for some French doors to be added so you can have full access to the large, flat, expansive yard area. The fully fenced-in level yard offers a wide range of possibilities from planting your favorite vegetables or flowers, maybe adding future potential structures*, or really, whatever you can dream - it’s a wide canvas for a lot of possibilities*. Some other practical highlights are a newer roof, completely new paint both inside and outside (2024), updated light fixtures (2024), and a garage that allows space for your prized possessions or car. Set in a neighborhood that has everything at its reach, this home is your ticket to easy living. 



*Buyer is advised to conduct their own investigation with appropriate professionals and verify with the city prior to proceeding with the purchase, and to rely solely on their own investigation.

All about El Cerrito

Welcome to El Cerrito, the hidden gem of the Bay Area! Nestled between tree-lined hills and the stunning San Francisco Bay, this charming town offers an idyllic lifestyle that's hard to beat. Whether you're a foodie, a shopper, an outdoor enthusiast, or a family with children, El Cerrito has everything you need to feel right at home.
Let's start with the shopping scene. El Cerrito Plaza, located at the intersection of San Pablo Ave and Fairmount Ave, is the heart of the town's shopping district. This open-air mall features a variety of stores, including popular retailers like Foot locker. But what really sets El Cerrito Plaza apart is its eclectic mix of local boutiques and specialty shops. You can find everything from vintage clothing and handmade jewelry to artisanal cheese and organic produce. Some of our favorites include Jenny K, a boutique that offers a carefully curated selection of women's clothing, jewelry, and accessories; El Cerrito Natural foods & Annex, where you can buy the most local and fresh produce, flowers and ready made to-go food; and Pastime ACE Hardware, a family-owned hardware store that has been serving the community for over 100 years.
When it comes to dining, El Cerrito is a food lover's paradise. The town has a diverse range of restaurants, from upscale eateries to casual cafes. If you're in the mood for Italian, check out Elevation 66 Brewing Company, which serves wood-fired pizza and house-brewed beer in a rustic-chic setting. For sushi and Japanese cuisine, head to Sushi Sho, a popular spot with fresh fish and creative rolls. If you're a fan of brunch, don't miss Fat Apple's Restaurant & Bakery, which offers a mouthwatering array of sweet and savory dishes. And for a taste of the Mexican cuisine, try Los Moles Beer Garden, which serves flavorful dishes and has a fantastic outdoor setting.
For the wine ​lovers we now have our very own wine bar, Banter, serving incredible ​unique wines and snacks! 
For movie buffs, the Cerrito Theater is a must-visit. This art deco theater, which first opened in 1937, has been beautifully restored and now shows a mix of classic films, indie flicks, and live events.
When it comes to outdoor activities, El Cerrito has plenty to offer. The Hillside Natural Area is a stunning 100-acre park that features hiking trails, wildflowers, and panoramic views of the Bay Area. If you're looking for a dog-friendly park, head to Point Isabel Regional Shoreline, which has a large off-leash area and beautiful views of the Golden Gate Bridge. And if you're a golfer, you'll love the Berkeley Country Club, which offers an 18-hole course with stunning views of the Bay.
But perhaps the best thing about El Cerrito is its strong sense of community. With excellent schools, a thriving arts scene, and a diverse population, this town is the perfect place to raise a family or start a new chapter in your life. And with easy access to public transportation, including the El Cerrito del Norte BART station and several AC Transit bus lines, getting around the Bay Area is a breeze.
So why wait? Come discover all that El Cerrito has to offer and see for yourself why this town is one of the Bay Area's best-kept secrets!
