540 Dwight Place
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.
