This beautiful duplex started life as a single story Victorian cottage. Sometime in the late eighties/early nineties, the property was lifted, and the story below added to turn it into the building it is today. The lower unit is 2 bedrooms, with a separate dining room and living room. There is access from this unit to the ample yard with a large storage shed. There is off-street parking along the side of the building. Upstairs is another unit, consisting of a large kitchen/dining room combination, a large living room with a pot bellied stove, and two good sized bedrooms, one with attic access. There is another large room currently used as a den which has access to the lovely deck and stairway that leads to the terrific yard. The property is conveniently located near the corner of Shattuck and Ashby, so it is a brilliant location for commutes, public transit, BART, Berkeley Bowl and tons of other neighborhood amenities.
