Quintessential Berkeley! Built for an Armenian carpet dealer circa 1903, then home to an artist family for 60 years, the Rest Easy Home has been a haven for artful expression, music and community through the decades. It features one of Berkeley’s noted community-oriented benches, this one beckoning passers-by to “rest easy.” Retaining much of its original charm, including hardwood floors, pocket doors & picture rails, it has recently undergone important and artistic transformations. The entry level was raised & has a new foundation w/ beautiful stained concrete floors, the entire home has new electrical, plumbing & HVAC (Chiltrix heat pump/boiler), high quality dual pane windows, skylights including a dramatic elliptical skylight in the kitchen w/ induction cooktop, & artful custom cabinetry with thoughtfully designed lighting throughout, stunning Heath tiles, a whimsical color palette, mature drought tolerant succulent garden, tranquil backyard with ipe & redwood decks, not to mention a legal 300sf ADU/backyard cottage w/ a beautifully crafted hideaway staircase & murphy bed and 649sf attic w/ skylights. The exceptional level of quality and detail is reflected in the work done by the highly respected Ian MacLeod design-build firm. Open Fri 6/23 5:30-7, Sat/Sun 6 24&25, 7/1&2.
