307 Carmel Avenue is the quintessential 1930's southern El Cerrito bungalow . This was an era of smaller homes built on large lots leaving space for front yards to give street privacy, rear yards for gardening, play areas and general relaxation. The entire interior of this home has been repainted and all the hardwood floors refinished. This home features two bedrooms and one bathroom. It has a spacious, sunny living room with ample windows facing east and south, a wood-burning, brick fireplace, hardwood floors as well as a ‘tube skylight' An arched entry takes you to a formal dining room with east-facing windows, hardwood floors and another ‘tube skylight'. The 2 bedroom are situated at the rear of the house for maximum privacy. They are separated by the single bathroom as was the custom of that day for homes this size. They both face west with windows facing west, south or north depending on the bedroom location. The northwest corner bedroom has access to a spacious deck with steps leading down to the garden as well as a ceiling fan for cooling purposes. The bathroom has original floor tile in an interesting pattern, tiled vanity and tub enclosure and a shower over the tub. The kitchen is compact with adequate cabinet space, tiled counters, a gas oven-range and refrigerator. The one car attached garage is accessible from the kitchen by way of a small porch. The laundry facilities are located in the garage. The back yard is fully landscaped and has a sprinkler system. It is terraced and has areas for gardening, play and entertaining. The deck is spacious enough for entertaining, container plants and so on. The rear garden is fully fenced and ‘dog proof'. There is a partial basement useful for storage. This home is located in the very desirable St. Jerome's neighborhood of southern El Cerrito. It is very close to public and private schools, El Cerrito Plaza shops, stores and restaurants, BART and within walking distance or easy driving distance of Solano Avenue's myriad of restaurants, last count over 60, shops, stores, theater and so on. TheI-80 freeway, COSTCO, Pacific Plaza, Albany Hill Park and Pt. Isabel dog park are all about 5 minutes away, west by car.  MoreLess
