Located in the hills just over the UC Berkeley campus, 540 Dwight Place is a spacious, 1,955 square foot 3BD/1.5BA mid-century home distinguished by sweeping bay views and a separate 1BD/1BA in-law apartment.

Step into this lovely home and you are immediately drawn to its open concept living/dining area, which features a wood-burning fireplace, original paneling, vaulted ceiling, and west-facing views. Step through sliding glass doors onto the deck, and the full extent of the view reveals itself, stretching from San Pablo Bay to the Bay Bridge, with the Campanile and red roofs of the Cal campus just below.

Continue exploring the entry level of this light-filled home and you will find a kitchen with a beautifully placed window just over the sink that looks out over the canyon just to the north, as well as a five-burner gas range and built-in desk. Also on this level is a half-bath.

Descend 540 Dwight’s staircase the lower level reveals itself, with three bedrooms: two bedrooms share a second deck with the sweeping views that are the home’s hallmark, while the third, which currently includes a laundry hook-ups, has a sliding glass door leading to the home’s private brick patio, which is framed by terraced gardens. This lower level includes a split hallway bath with shower over tub.

From the patio you can explore this home’s hidden gem -- a light-filled 1BD/1BA in-law unit with a common area with west-facing views, sliding glass doors leading to its own private deck, and a kitchen with a five-burner gas range. A staircase leads to a lower level where you will find a bedroom and a bath with step-in shower.

Home to one of the most prestigious universities in the country, Berkeley offers the intellectual and cultural stimulation from its campus -- which is within walking distance of downtown. Many Berkeley neighborhoods were established in the 1920s, with quiet, tree-lined streets, brown-shingled homes, and lushly landscaped yards. In Thousand Oaks, the original developers preserved ancient oak trees and left rock outcroppings intact. Elmwood, with its thriving business district, remains one of the city’s most sought-after neighborhoods. In Claremont, the Claremont Hotel, a gleaming white Victorian-era landmark, has provided generations of Bay Area residents with a luxurious getaway. Berkeley has long been at the forefront of culinary innovation. Locals flock to the original Peet’s Coffee & Tea location. For residents who like to savor their meals at home, small retail districts sprinkled throughout Berkeley allow them to shop like Europeans, going from store to store to purchase everything they need. Those in a hurry can always visit major grocery stores nearby. Neighborhood green spaces abound throughout Berkeley, from small community gardens to the Berkeley Rose Garden -- which boasts more than 3,000 rose bushes. The gem of the area is 2,000-acre Tilden Regional Park, with its miles of biking and hiking trails and the naturally landscaped swimming hole at Lake Anza.
