Last purchased in 2014 for a measly $460,000, 905 Hearst in Berkeley was a derelict property, a home in shambles after years of wear and tear. After all, this circa-1911 home had seen it all. But over the last couple of years, a major renovation took place from the studs up.
Featuring four beds and four baths, this onetime ramshackle abode transformed into a contemporary home. Now it comes with two properties: a main house measuring 1,659 square feet (three beds, three baths) and a 395-square-foot guest cottage (one bed, one bath). The main home comes with 16-foot ceilings, wine fridge, and built-in shelving.
Also of note, the 92 Walk Score (near Fourth Street!) and the fruit trees in the yard. The property is also wired to accommodate all the newfangled technology popular today inside major renovations—iPad in-wall controllers and chargers, Nest, et cetera.
Asking is $1,649,000.
