If you are looking to get into Kensington Hilltop Elementary School, it's in the district! Sunny and sweet, this creekside haven has ample room to comfortably "tuck in" and space for everyone & everything. The main entry leads to the hub of the home with an emphasis on entertaining. The open flow from dining to the kitchen offers stainless steel appliances, a chef’s gas range, and loads of counter space. Step into the spacious living room with a wood-burning stove and wood hewn shelving. Gracious sliding doors beckon you to the large deck. Regal redwoods and a huge lot stand ready for the urban gardener's inspiration. The primary bedroom suite offers a vine-covered deck surrounded by a sweet garden. The lower level reveals the additional bedrooms including a fourth bedroom (a quality garage conversion) and an office niche. Three full baths feel extra luxurious when everyone is working from home. The house maybe two levels, but each can be reached without steps through separate entries.
Surrounded by tree-lined hills, views of the San Francisco Bay, and located just a few miles from the shoreline, El Cerrito is a beautiful town in the Bay Area. This home is around the corner from Huber Park which offers a 2.9-acre terraced park with basketball courts & abundant play areas. The neighborhoods in El Cerrito reflect the town’s Mid-century charm and appeal. The area is rich in music history as well: El Cerrito is the birthplace of John Fogerty and the famous rock band known as Creedence Clearwater Revival.
The community is also ideally located for UC Berkeley students and faculty. A short trip from the El Cerrito del Norte station can have you on campus in 20 minutes. Whether you love golf, hiking, or several other outdoor activities, El Cerrito has an option for you. Berkeley Country Club has been a staple in the community for nearly 100 years, and its beautiful 18-hole golf course provides breathtaking panoramic views of the Bay Area Bridge. Hikers love Hillside Natural Area which provides over 100 acres of open grasslands and is a great place to take your dog on a walk. If you prefer to take your dog to a park where they can interact with other furry friends, Point Isabel Dog Park is a great option.
El Cerrito Plaza, located near the intersection of San Pablo Ave and Fairmount Avenue, serves several purposes. First, it is El Cerrito’s premier shopping center; stores include Barnes and Noble, Bed Bath & Beyond, Lucky supermarket, a CVS, a Verizon store, and several popular fast-food restaurants. It also features a BART station which makes commuting to and from San Francisco super convenient. Locals skip the national chains and opt for long-standing local burger and dog joints like Big Al’s, Nation’s Giant Burgers (HQ’d in EL C) and Caspers Hot Dogs. Some days feel like a step back in town when residents can enjoy a Nation’s Giant Burger, then head across the street to check out a flick at the art deco Cerrito Theater (built in 1937). If you’re craving more than just fast food, you will be amazed at the diverse array of local restaurants. Notable restaurants in El Cerrito include: The Junket: Enjoy a unique fusion of German and British cuisine when you visit this unique deli in El Cerrito. Larb Thai Food & Tapas: One of the Bay Area’s highest-rated Thai restaurants, locals and residents alike enjoy both the food and the atmosphere. El Mono: Savor the flavors of authentic Peruvian cuisine in a relaxed atmosphere while gazing at the artwork on the walls. From great food and shopping to convenient access to public transit, plus scenic views at every turn, El Cerrito has it all!
Beyond bucolic El Cerrito, 7627 Levistion also benefits from its location in the Hilltop Elementary School District enjoying the school's stellar education as well as the proximity of the quaint Kensington shops.
