New Listing – 1630 Belvedere Ave. in Berkeley!

1630 Belvedere Ave., Berkeley Beautiful Craftsman Remodel

You know how sometimes it just feels good?  When the house has a certain je ne sais quoi?  This is one of those, the house that my 7 year old has deemed “The Coolster House.”

1630 Belvedere in Berkeley is a sparking, 2 bed/1 bath home, completely remodeled top to bottom.  It is where original Craftsman charm meets modern day sophistication.  This gorgeous 2 bedroom, 1 bathroom North Berkeley home has been immaculately renovated to preserve originality while incorporating contemporary finishes. The sellers made sure that every detail was given proper attention, every redesign maintained the original character of the home, and that every space was used to its fullest potential.  Really!  

And know what else makes this house so cool?  The location.  Ahhhh, the location.  

The neighborhood is what draws many people to the area. Belvedere Ave. is an exceptionally quiet street… yet head a few blocks east and you will find parks, BART and the Gourmet Ghetto; head north and you will stumble upon Monterey Market and the new Westbrae Biergarten; west is the 4th St shopping district and Acme Bread; south is easy freeway access, Berkeley Bowl West, and more.

1630 Belvedere in North Berkeley will be open this weekend.  Come and check it out for yourself.

Groovy New Thai Restaurant Headed to Kensington – Ele Thai Cafe

By July 28, 2014 @ 9:22 am

Ele Thai Cafe is about to make its debut in Kensington!  Remember the little ice cream shop that didn’t make it, Sugar Cone Cafe?  The one on the corner of Boynton and Arlington?  This is where the cafe will open shop.

I ran into one of the owners yesterday and she said they are hoping to open next month.  They will have seating for 10 and offer delicious Thai food and ice cream in a quaint cafe setting.

Before and After Kitchen Ideas

By July 24, 2014 @ 10:40 am

Ok, one of my favorite sites for kitchen ideas is “the kitchn” – have you checked it out?  One of the great things is that they show a ton of before and after pics, and give inexpensive design solutions.  Many of the remodels are under $5,000.  WHAT???  Yup.  Gotta sell and your kitchen isn’t so hot?  Let’s look at the pics and come up with a plan.

I love this example, and all for $7,000.  Read about the remodel here: A Smart Kitchen Renovation for under $7000
