About 360 Rugby Avenue

This elegant five-bedroom, three-bathroom classic Cape Cod home designed by renowned Berkeley architect Paul Hammarberg for Mr. and Mrs. Louis Stein affords the best of a Berkeley lifestyle and the ideal setting for indoor-outdoor living. The bright, newly remodeled kitchen features gourmet appliances, marble countertops, and all new cabinetry. The large living room showcases a classic fireplace and a large picture window to view the beautiful tiered-stone, flora, and native oak landscape beyond. Look through living room and dining room windows to several of the property’s majestic redwoods and Cerritos Creek. A huge picture window in the formal dining room brings the outside in, with a pastoral view of more cloistering redwoods and the creek. The master suite includes a newly upgraded full bath and shower, new vanity, and custom cedar-lined closets. A sunny, second downstairs bedroom opens to the backyard through a new premium sliding glass door, providing more flowing access to the outdoor living and entertaining area. The third downstairs bedroom and remodeled bath afford convenient level-in living for the entire family and guests. Refinished wood floors are found throughout the home, with new and updated tile in the kitchen and baths. Upstairs features a remodeled fourth bedroom – a cheerful, bucolic knotty pine escape complete with a Hunter ceiling fan and spacious hidden storage closets – and a third updated full bath. Beyond the home's reported square footage, two additional capacious rooms have been remodeled into a contemporary open floor plan retreat, with new lighting and Hunter ceiling fans, functioning for the current owner as a huge family and game room and an enormous additional private bedroom with two generous closets and additional cavernous hidden storage closets. Extraordinary storage exists throughout the house, with even more storage area in the large basement equipped with built-in cabinets and doubling as a wine cellar, and a caboose-sized outbuilding with tiered storage shelves. The roomy remodeled two-car garage features a Tesla charger, custom built-in storage cabinets, and a staircase to the full-size loft, providing even more storage. Your family and guests will love accessing the stunning backyard deck and patio area and magical landscaped garden, stepping through the doorway featuring new glass-paneled French doors leading from the kitchen and mudroom onto the huge new high-end Trex deck. The brick-walled cabana features a classic outdoor brick fireplace, terraced stone patios featuring built-in stone benches and a softly babbling fountain. Your family and friends will delight in the casual pleasures of playing bocce on the beautifully maintained oyster-shelled bocce court, and the arboreal views and magical sanctuary of the tree house will enchant all who ascend, enhancing the full spectrum of your family’s lifestyle. This beautiful and serene redwood and oaks sanctuary is uniquely situated on an expansive, wooded corner bounded by Cerritos Creek. The huge back yard, garden paths, outdoor “rooms,” and leisure features afford limitless potential for special gatherings. The estate includes parcels located on Rugby Avenue and Vermont Avenue in the vibrant, well-organized, and culturally rich Rugby-Vermont neighborhood, offering limitless potential for quality living and investment. Close to the shops and restaurants in upper Kensington Village and just minutes from Tilden Park, Indian Rock, John Hinkle Park, and the Berkeley Rose Garden, with convenient access to UC Berkeley, Solano Avenue, and BART. The perfect setting to enjoy all the benefits of an upbeat city lifestyle from your own peaceful sanctuary set in nature. A private paradise! First time on the market in twenty-three years. The estate consists of two parcels, each can be sold separately or together!
