Elegant Farmhouse Modern Home in Central Berkeley

Stunning from every angle, this like-new modern farmhouse is thoughtfully designed from top-to-bottom and features incredible indoor/outdoor connections and tech savvy Tesla conveniences making it both eco conscious and stylish. Located on what feels almost like a cul-de-sac, 2901 Otis sits elegantly on a corner and features five-bedrooms and four-bathrooms with every nuance considered with sophisticated attention to detail. While it was originally constructed in 1902, the home was fully re-invented in 2019 and now flaunts a modern farmhouse façade, practical floor plan and lots of California Napa style.

Eye-catching in its design, the exterior staircase leads up to the covered porch and main entry. You immediately enter into a great room plan living space, which seamlessly connects to the dining room and kitchen for entertaining on any scale. Complete with integrated speakers, a large central island for gathering, and a cozy hearth to ground the space, you’ll enjoy great room living for years to come. A full bath and bedroom sit off the hall. From here, you can travel up or down via the dramatic central staircase, illuminated by a grand scale designer chandelier.

On the ground level is an abundance of flexible space. Ideal as a family room, glass accordion doors open nearly the entire wall to the patio for year-round enjoyment of the Bay Area’s fabulous weather. A glass-enclosed wine cellar, and well-appointed laundry room sit conveniently nearby. In addition, a capacious bedroom connects to the hall bath with en suite potential, while the other bedroom enjoys access outdoors via glass French doors.

Moving upstairs, an impressive primary suite awaits with peek-a-boo views of the bay, and a cozy balcony to enjoy sunsets. Warm brass sconces adorn the walls of this inviting space, complete with a walk-in closet and spa-inspired bath. Marble floor tiles, a glass-enclosed rain shower, and a standing soaking tub await. A full hall bath and comfortably sized bedroom conclude the top floor.

The exterior has been fully fenced, with an automatic driveway gate leading into the detached garage with glass sliding doors out to the patio and pergola making it useful for more than just parking. And the new Tesla solar and energy system will ensure the twinkle lights always have power. The lawns wrapping around the house are lush and gardens drought tolerant. The location could not be more perfect with the Ashby BART and transit, shopping, library, parks, and restaurants. All together this is your “forever home”.
