Features


Perched on a sunny knoll in walkable Albany near Solano Ave, this handsome bungalow has been completely reimagined by an architect for herself.  It has been meticulously crafted from the foundation up, with all new systems.  Period touches like tray ceilings and covered porches combine with pristine state-of-the-art finishes for the best of both worlds.  Open-concept floor plan downstairs flows from living to dining to kitchen and out to an expansive, chic Ipe wood deck.  Tucked off a hallway for privacy are two bedrooms, one with deck, and a sparkling bathroom with laundry.  Up a stairwell drenched in natural light is a dreamy master suite with very private deck looking westward.  Immaculate!
To the rear is an adorable (and legal) cottage built with permits in 1994. One bedroom, one bathroom and a living area with french doors to its own garden patio.  So many ways to settle in!

Neighborhood


This formerly working-class neighborhood once housed the pipe fitters, welders, and shipbuilders that worked for Henry Kaiser during World War II. Today, Albany is home to a diverse group of professionals who support the local schools with a passion. Solano Avenue, with its incredible array of restaurants, independent cinema, and shopping, is proof that there's more to Albany than its stellar school system. And because Albany is small, flat, and sunny, it's a walkable neighborhood, with Solano Avenue as its east-west axis. Bakeries, boutiques, and bistros thrive on Solano. The annual Solano Avenue Stroll, which takes place the second Sunday in September, shows off all 26 blocks -- from the Landmark Theaters Albany Twin theater, which shows an eclectic mix of first-run blockbusters to small, independent features, to the family-run Sunny Side Up cafe -- and is the perfect place to start your exploration of Albany.
