Built in 1944, this one-story, bungalow-style home in Berkeley has the distinction of being listed under a million dollars, which sounds like a bargain in these heady times. It also has the honor of being situated inside one of the country’s most savory neighborhoods.
Featuring two beds, two baths, and 1,182 square feet, 1223 Henry, while unassuming from the outside, comes with tall beamed ceilings and exposed trusses in the living room that provide both spaciousness and eye candy. Other highlights include a picture window, an exposed kitchen (if you dig that sort of thing), and a walk-in pantry room.
Also, this abode is located inside Berkeley’s Gourmet Ghetto, the colloquial name of North Berkeley’s restaurant-laden neighborhood, three blocks away from that ingredient-driven temple known as Chez Panisse. (Fill your freezer with Pizza Rolls at your own peril, future homeowner.) So it’s no surprise that the house comes with a garden bearing such treats as rosemary, figs, apples, pears, lavender, roses, and bay laurel.
Asking is $899,000.
