843 Gelston Place

SOLD 28% over asking with 10 offers!

In 2006 M & B began their home search, initially focusing on Oakland properties. At that time, I encouraged them to broaden their parameters and explore areas north of Oakland, as well. We ventured north to 843 Gelston Pl and they were instantly smitten. They fell in love with the glorious, panoramic wire-free views, the huge deck & the beautiful yard, with fruit trees, pathways & lawn. Fortunately, their offer was accepted & 843 Gelston Pl became their new home. Now, after 16+ years, M & B have relocated, and others will have an opportunity to fall in love with this wonderful home.

This extraordinary mid-century home has exquisite views from both levels, light that streams in throughout the day, a seamless indoor-outdoor flow & a perfect balance of openness & separation. Classic details blend seamlessly with updates. The living room & dining room open to a large view deck & the lower level, comprised of a bedroom, bath & family rm, offers versatility. It can serve as a private bedroom retreat or a guest suite, home office, or au-pair. It has a separate entrance as well as internal access. Zoned for the acclaimed Hilltop Elementary  School* in Kensington & close to Arlington Park, Cerrito Vista Park, public transit, the EC Swim Center, CC Civic Theater and EC Natural Grocery, this home could not be better located.

*Buyers to verify attendance with the CCUSD.

Open Saturday and Sunday, 2/11,2/12,2/18 and 2/19…2-4

Open Thursday 2/16, 9:30-12
