about this home's










The Best of Both Worlds! 1170 Sterling is an enchanting 1938 Tudor-style home tucked into the North Berkeley Hills that has been recently transformed & updated by owners in residence since the early 1960’s.  Almost everything (incl. electrical & plumbing) is new on the inside from an enlarged gorgeous kitchen with views, creation of a primary suite upstairs, and a new, enlarged bath on main level. This home combines architectural charm with all the desirable modern amenities and styles so in demand these days. 

The main level has a dramatic original living room w a vaulted wooden ceiling & two walls of windows, a spacious dining room opening to the view and deck, an extraordinary kitchen + sundrenched breakfast rm opening to a large deck/views, as well as bedroom & gorgeous new hall bath. Upstairs are two beds, two baths, incl primary suite, and loft area adjacent to 2nd BR. Downstairs includes an original rumpus room (non-conforming height) and a reworked lower level creating options for future development. A front garden/patio below the street and a lower garden for play offer opportunities to enjoy the charm of the hills. A spacious 1+ car garage has high ceilings and room for storage. It’s a dog-walking neighborhood, so easy to meet neighbors. Special indeed!

Neighborhood Gallery

1170 Sterling Avenue

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.
