About

LOADS OF SPACE TO SHELTER-IN-PLACE!

Welcome to 821 Polk Street, an absolutely charming home perched atop Albany Hill.  There is a real sweetness to this 1940’s home – no clutter, loads of warmth, and softly integrated with nature.

Looking out onto the East Bay Hills this sunny + spacious home is bigger than it appears, offering plenty of room to Zoom around.  With 4 bedrooms, 2-3/4 baths, a large family room, and a gorgeously updated in-law with exterior access, this home is dreamy for sheltering in place and staying home.

The thoughtful floor plan allows for a modern-day lifestyle intertwined with busy days working from home, backyard urban farming, hosting out-of-town guests, creating culinary delights, or relaxing on the deck as the sun sets for the night  The front yard is dotted with drought-tolerant plantings and the porch happily welcomes visitors.  Out back you will find a tree swing, fruit trees and garden beds full of edible delights.

Albany is known for its unique, small-town feel, exceptional schools, temperate climate, and friendly vibe. This wonderful home is close to Solano Ave shops + restaurants, Sprouts + Whole Foods, hiking + parks, BART + public transit. 

Whether you are currently sheltering-in-place, suddenly working from home and homeschooling, or eagerly anticipating sharing your home with family and friends in the future, this home has everything you need to feel safe, comfortable, and sane!
