$1,325,000 852 Gelston Place, El Cerrito, CA 94530
First time on the market, this state of the art 60's home exudes a sweet sitcom vibe. Cosmetic fixer. We have done some fluffing, however the original details are in tact. Living room has floor to ceiling brick fireplace, rich wood floors and vaulted beamed ceilings. Split level to open dining room, spacious kitchen and adjoins oversized breakfast/family area with a slider leading to patio and lush garden. Main level has principal bedroom with bath and walk-in closet. Split level to two additional bedrooms, hall bath and laundry. Stairs up to expansive bedroom with tremendous possibilities (Master retreat?) with big bay views. Sited on a cul-de-sac. Minutes to Central Plaza and BART, 10 minutes to Cal. , Berkeley and 30 min. to the S.F. Perfect home to live in while making it your own. It has a long and happy history with the family who resided here for generations, ready for a new chapter!
