As we’re all spending more time at home than ever before, backyard amenities have become even more appealing, especially to those of us without any.
At 2582 Marin Ave. in Berkeley, a buyer could relax in a treehouse or a Japanese tea-room-style gazebo in their backyard, for $1.7 million.
The gazebo includes a heart-shaped hot tub and the windows in the gazebo can slide open on all sides.
The 1927 craftsman has four bedrooms and two bathrooms. The living room, dining room and kitchen, as well as the upstairs deck, all offer sweeping bay views.
There’s also a smaller patio off the lower level.
The property was originally zoned to be a duplex, which listing agent Rosa Sifuentez said could be the case again if the buyer wanted. The lower level has its own bedroom and separate entrance and could be used as an in-law suite, an office or additional living space.
Sifuentez said it’s a great property for those that like to cycle and hike, due to its close proximity to nature trails. “It’s just a stones throw from Tilden Park,” she said. “It’s a nature lover’s paradise.”
