1101 Miller Avenue
1101 Miller is a captivating 1930’s 2+BD/1BA mid-century home featuring gorgeous Bay views, a spacious private leveled-out back yard with patio and garden, and oodles of retro charm. This lovely residence, on a quiet street near scenic Tilden Park, seamlessly mingles thoughtful design details both vintage and modern, from the beautifully remodeled eat-in kitchen to the old-timey wood-burning fireplace. This delightful residence brims with beguiling touches.
Even before you enter the home, the front steps and landing introduce you to the stylishly functional character of this house; the steps are glass-walled, allowing you to peel off your shoes before entering. Once inside, you will glimpse the Bay through the wide and welcoming front windows. The perfectly proportioned entryway easily accommodates a desk or rocking chair. An elegant period wood-burning fireplace flanked by built-in shelving anchors the living room ahead of you.
French doors open from the living room directly into the enclosed private back garden oasis. A large patio, ideal for outdoor dining, ping-pong, or an afternoon barbecue, adjoins the wide lawn area, a wonderful setting for children to play. To the rear of the lawn and patio, you will find a lovely curved wall backed by a lushly landscaped, gently sloping garden.
The bedroom and kitchen areas frame the living room. The two convenient bedrooms and the serene blue-tiled, vintage-style bathroom each offers built-in storage in addition to the two useful bedroom hall closets. The expertly designed eat-in kitchen features a cheerful breakfast nook at one end and a beautifully remodeled cooking area at the other. With a Bosch gas range and dishwasher, quartz countertops, counter-to-ceiling cabinets, and an adorable chalkboard-painted Dutch door leading to the pantry and downstairs bonus room, the kitchen has it all. The well-situated and versatile downstairs space would make a perfect play area or guest room.
1101 Miller offers enchanting outdoor spaces, Bay views, period charms, and modern practicality, all within a block of the AC Transit bus to Downtown Berkeley BART and just minutes from spectacular Tilden Park. This superbly updated vintage gem is not to be missed.
