1907 Berkeley Avenue

1907 Berkeley Avenue

It gets hard trying to find a new angle to write about another remodeled Echo Park bungalow. That’s not to detract from what we have here in front of us, as it is another welcome specimen, but only the laments of this here author. Anyway, moving on…

1907 Berkeley Front

Right off the bat, I like the grey exterior with the striking red door. Red is the color of power and it helps makes this 1,016 square foot 2 bedroom, 1.5 bath home stand tall. And, with an optimistic asking price of $765,000, it’s going to need it.

1907 Berkeley Living

Originally built in 1923, much has been done to bring this up to date, while still keeping its charm intact. Hardwood floors can be found throughout, along with industrial light fixtures, and high-end amenities like a Nest thermostat.

1907 Berkeley Kitchen

Those sentiments carry over to the spacious (relatively) kitchen and dining area. New stainless steel appliances complement the white cabinet, butcher block look counters, and farmhouse sink.

1907 Berkeley Dining

For a smaller home of this era, the bedrooms seem larger than one typically finds. Nothing really out of the ordinary here, though I am a fan of the light fixture.

The bathroom (photo of half bath not available) with its claw-foot tub and abundant tile, work very well with the modern touch of a trough-shaped sink. Hopefully, some inebriated individual will not mistake it for a urinal.

1907 Berkeley Bath

Outside you’ll find a concrete fire pit flanked by a redwood fence with some healthy shrubbery, which together make this outdoor space the right kind of intimate.
