Built in 1938

An incomparable complex, less than a block to the Northside of the prestigious UC campus! Built in the late 1930's by Irwin M. Johnson, these elegant stucco buildings are smartly sited around a garden lot of just under 1/2 acre, offering unique views of the Bay or campus. Each unit lives like a SFR with hardwood floors, gracious living rooms with fireplaces, own laundry; 4 units occupy 2 stories, with gracious stairs. All buildings have cedar shake roofs. Electrical service has been upgraded, and each unit has separately metered utilities. Each unit is spacious, occupying between approximately 1300 and 1500 square feet, and most are being used as 3 bedrooms. There is one even-larger unit, occupying over 1600 sq. ft., being used as a 4-bedroom. Four units have add'l half-bath. Long history of low vacancy and high rental rates. With a WalkScore of 90, this location is considered A Walker's Paradise, 1/2 mile south to downtown and BART/Arts district, or north to Shattuck/Gourmet district. In 24 years since I sold it to the seller, nothing has compared to this complex. So beautiful and so close to campus, with wonderfully high rents!
