With its minimalist modern facade and period-perfect deco design detail, 5614 Poinsett Avenue is a stunner of a single-family home in the foothills of El Cerrito, California.

This modernistic split-level home is framed with paned corner windows that flood the home with light. Impeccably refurbished original wide plank oak flooring imbues the interior with warmth and timeless style.

Up a flight of steps, the front door opens to an inviting living room with brick fronted wood fireplace, adjacent to an elegant formal dining room. The recently updated kitchen is a perfect blend of original vintage, and modern appliances and aesthetics. Bright, cheerful, and well equipped, this kitchen is the heart of the home.

A charming breakfast nook with direct outdoor access to a verdant, terraced garden area, already brilliantly planted with mature lovely plants,and ready for your victory garden, will surely become the location of many languid mornings, lingering over coffee.

Three spacious bedrooms provide occupants with privacy and ample space, while the home’s retro style green and white tiled bathroom will take you back in time. A partially finished basement with laundry facilities, multipurpose space, an office with half bath and a full, two-car garage make 5614 Poinsett an ideal home for a growing family. Close to BART, and major East Bay freeway corridors, make this an ideal home for commuters too.

Enjoy the indoor outdoor integration of the terraced backyard with Bay Views, updated Marvin windows in strategic locations, mature landscaping, and lots of places to soak up the sun in the Banana Belt of El Cerrito.
