About 2720 Alcatraz Avenue
This classic Berkeley brown shingle Craftsman offers a unique combination of old-world charm and thoughtful modern upgrades. From 2720 Alcatraz Avenue's gracious front porch, walk into the formal entry which opens to the living room, the kitchen and the grand staircase to the second floor. The formal living room has coved ceilings, picture railings and never painted wood trim. The dining room is a delight with its wood wainscoting, trim, and built-ins ideal for showcasing special china, porcelain and glassware. Hardwood floors gleam throughout the main level. The exceptionally spacious kitchen has been upgraded with Heath tiles, new appliances and special counters. It glows with light from the immense back window and door that opens out to the deck and back yard oasis of flowers, herbs and fruit. The second floor has four spacious bedrooms, a whimsical full bathroom, and a sunporch that could easily become a second full bathroom.
If you want to walk to everything, this is the house for you! Located just ½ block from College Avenue, you have access to fine and casual dining, coffee shops, chic boutiques, high end butcher and wine shops, and multiple grocers. Easy access to Hwy 24 and BART makes commuting a breeze.
