Fairytale Tudor in the Berkeley Hills asks $2.19M

It was built in 1927

The stone facade. An arched front door. A “Rapunzel room.” This Berkeley Hills abode screams ye olde Brothers Grimm tale with an oh-so contemporary asking price of $2,195,000.

Featuring four bedrooms, six bathrooms, and 3,359 square feet, 2333 Rose comes with new flooring, new kitchen and baths, and new lighting. In fact, contrary to its 1920s facade, inside you’ll find many recent upgrades.

“While it was already a lovely home when I purchased it, [the home] had some serious challenges,” says the current owner. “On the plus side, the previous owners clearly cared about the property and did the heavy lifting necessary to preserve the home, including the replacement of most of the foundation and retaining wall that supports the home.”

What it lacked were full bathrooms, modern wiring, proper plumbing, and detailed care to preserve the home’s original stucco, masonry, and exterior trim finishes. Also of note, there’s a new legal accessory dwelling unit (also known as an “ADU”) on ground floor

And while most of the home’s interiors are new, some of its old details remain, like the lofty wood ceiling in the top-floor “Rapunzel room,” as it’s christened by Berkeley Heritage, just off the master bedroom. Lovely.
