A quintessential home in one of Berkeley's most beloved and central neighborhoods. Stroll under an arbor of wisteria to the front porch, screened in by divided lite windows. From here you enter a classically laid out and timeless floor-plan. Throughout the years the current owners have lovingly updated and conscientiously added all the modern necessities so that Fulton became their sanctuary of home and garden. The house is nestled under the sweeping branches of Sycamore trees, they provide seasonal foliage, privacy and graceful natural lines.

The exterior with its redwood siding, decorative dentil moulding, arched windows and wooden columns emanate the influences so cherished in our early 20th century architecture. Those period details throughout are still in tact, wood wainscoting, built-ins, pocket doors, coved ceilings and picture molding all masterfully blended with modern updates.

The heart of the home is its architect* renovated kitchen/great room combo, this remodeled space opens to a newly built two tiered deck that overlooks the flourishing garden. The kitchen has Carrera marble counters, skylights, a custom breakfast island, hardwood floors and ample artisan fir cabinets. It is open to a great room and deck which make for seamless household gatherings and easy entertaining. The main level has a formal entry, living and dining room all with pocket doors. There is also a hallway with custom pantry cabinets, stackable washer/dryer and an updated full bath. 

Upstairs are four generous bedrooms all off a central hallway, a sun porch with a “Juliet” balcony, the second full bath and a finished attic space. There is substantial room for everyone to live, work, rest and play. The upstairs spaces have abundant natural light, treetop views and recently refinished and glowing Doug fir floors. The finished attic has three oversized skylights and new Berber carpet, it is a great flexible space that can serve a multitude of needs.

2810 Fulton’s excellent location provides unparalleled convenience to downtown, Berkeley Bowl, the Elmwood Districts, cafes, shops and restaurants, schools, parks, a local hardware store, CAL campus, BART and AC transit lines.

Neighborhood Gallery

2810 Fulton Street Berkeley

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, Craftsman bungalows, brown-shingled homes, and lushly landscaped yards. 

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.

2810 Fulton is located in what some have coined the 'Berkeley Bowl' district which is one of Berkeley’s oldest and most preserved neighborhoods, rich in architectural history. This South Berkeley area was originally developed in the 1860s by the University of Californial’s predecessor, the College of California. The latter institution may be long gone, but the classic homes remain. The "Original" Berkeley Bowl, Whole Foods, Ashby BART, Shotgun Playhouse, Tuesday afternoon Farmer's Market, UC Berkeley campus, Zellerbach Hall, and everything that is Elmwood. Both the Ashby and Downtown Berkeley BART stations serve the neighborhood, as do a number of Alameda-Contra Costa Transit buses, making it a snap to get to downtown San Francisco, local airports, sports stadiums, and other locations in the Bay Area.

It’s your turn to be the next caretaker of such a treasured place in time…
