Too cute

Built in 1945, this revamped abode in El Cerrito is downright adorable with its lack of ornamental bells and whistles. It’s the kind of place you can image settling down in with your paramour, a couple of dogs, and maybe a kid. And with an asking price of $769,000, it’s the kind of place deemed “affordable” in the Bay Area.

Featuring two bed, two baths, and 1,069 square feet, 7203 A Street has a modest facade that belies the plethora of new additions inside. The house comes with an open kitchen, a master bedroom with en-suite bath, a dining room that steps down to a sun room that could be a TV room (do those still exist in these modern tablet times?), and a wood-burning fireplace.

Outside you’ll find a spacious backyard, with enough room for entertaining, featuring a detached studio space that would be ideal as an office or another bedroom.

Also of note: The homeowner will get to live in El Cerrito, a small-ish East Bay town founded by refugees from the 1906 San Francisco earthquake. Even better, the city has its own BART stop.

The listing is through Sheri Madden of Red Oak Realty.
