Set back from the street and on a large corner lot, this warm bungalow offers more than meets the eye. When I first visited I was struck by a sense calm that seems to permeate the property. Despite appearing close to the freeway, there’s hardly any sound as the traffic travels deep under the Solano overpass. Passing through the front door for the first time felt just like visiting an old friend. The layout offers a simple, wood floored open living and dining room, with an updated kitchen, all made bright and airy with large windows facing a spacious front yard. A bedroom sits either side of the original bathroom and all feels well proportioned and balanced. The garage has been repurposed as a useful bonus studio space with kitchen and full bathroom* A sheltered backyard with storage shed & workshop offers space to entertain. This home is zoned for Mira Vista Elementary, Korematsu Middle, and El Cerrito High School per the WCCUSD school locator tab**.
