About

2296 Ashby Avenue is well-maintained classic bungalow that has charming 1920’s period details, while at the same time remarkably contemporary in the lifestyle it bestows. The airy kitchen invites you and guests to linger over appetizers and cocktails, with room even for a full meal. If you prefer eating al fresco, the kitchen opens onto an entertainer’s garden with plenty of sunlight on the deck and a shady corner under the plum tree.

This darling home is surrounded by amenities, offering a sanctuary not often found in the heart of a city. Nestled between some of Oakland and Berkeley’s most desirable neighborhoods Rockridge, Temescal, Elmwood, and Claremont, it’s hard to beat this location for proximity to dining, entertainment, shopping, parks, and transit.

Everything in this storybook bungalow feels just right, from the easy flow layout to the two generously sized bedrooms and well-appointed full bathroom. The updated and spacious kitchen’s richly painted cabinets and stone counters compliment the home’s 1920s era details that include built-in storage and classic O’Keefe & Merritt gas stove with two ovens and stove top griddle, perfect for weekend breakfasts, or late-night snacks.

Entertaining guests of all ages is a breeze with the easy indoor-outdoor flow from the kitchen to the enchanting back garden. The inviting backyard deck is ready for dining and the patio awaits playtime and casual gardening.

Tucked away in the yard is the home’s detached studio cottage — homey enough for a guest room, it could also be a home office with exterior accessibility, an art studio flooded with natural light, a home gym, or maybe a meditation space.

The mature front garden flourishes at your sides as you step along the tile path up to the covered porch. Crossing the home’s front threshold, honey colored oak hardwood floors stretch before you. These beautiful floors anchor charming period details from this 1924 home’s wood framed doorways, picture railings that grace the tops of the walls, and decorative moldings on the dining room walls accenting the alcoved built-in. This home envelopes you in its charm, welcoming all who enter with warmth and grace.

A world of international cuisines is just beyond the front door offering inspiration for meals to recreate. Shopping for exotic ingredients, or grabbing a forgotten item, is easy as pie with Whole Foods on the nearest corner and Berkeley Bowl half a mile away.
