North Berkeley’s Solano Avenue area is one of the most sought-after East Bay communities. The Avenue itself is home to world-class eateries, shops, and theaters, while the surrounding residential neighborhood is criss-crossed by meandering tree-lined lanes with architecturally significant homes. Only 2 blocks long, and 2 blocks from the Solano Avenue, Madera Street is a local treasure. Homes on the street are unique, and rarely come on the market. When this one appeared, tastefully remodeled and complete with a very private detached cottage, I knew it was perfect for my clients. They beat out 6 other bidders and got their dream home for a great price.
