If we had to pick one home that represents Bernal Heights perfectly, it would be be 209 Bennington Street. Whether it’s the ideal location a block from the heart of Cortland Street’s shops and restaurants, the killer water views and the charming yard with a miniature greenhouse, this three-bedroom home reps the Bernal lifestyle perfectly.
The home’s open floor plan and designer touches blend a modern industrial look with a classic Victorian feel and major curb appeal. The main level features wallpaper and unique floors, plus a renovated bathroom and kitchen. One spacious bedroom is tucked in front while the great room is perfect for entertaining with connected dining, living and kitchen areas. This level is complete with a deck and a built-in office nook. Up the floating stairs, you’ll find another bedroom with a private walk-out deck and unobstructed views across the Bay and into the Oakland hills. The lower level continues the look and feel of the upper levels with concrete floors, a media room with extra space to play or workout and a kitchenette. This floor has its own entrance and a full bath and bedroom. Though it is connected with the upper floors and flows perfectly, it could also be used as the perfect home office or guest or au pair suite. The home also offers extensive storage and laundry, plus a landscaped backyard begging to be used during Bernal’s famously sunny days.
