955 Leneve Place

$1,550,000 955 Leneve Place, El Cerrito, CA 94530
Serene, inspiring pastoral and peek of the Bay views from abundant windows throughout this home. Designed by Arthur A. Iwata AIA c.1957 whose work was most recognizable in Safeway and other retail stores. Iwata was commissioned to design several custom residences in the area. His modernist approach exemplifies this era, like Eichler he created an open floor plan, walls of glass, beamed-tongue and groove ceilings and thoughtful access to the garden. While retaining the original aesthetic the current long time have meticulously maintained this home and have updated and upgraded the property. Separate sweet work-shed is a great additional bonus space. Leneve Pl. is a favorite street for people walking their dogs or out for a nice stroll. There is little traffic and there is excellent access to parks and hiking trails. Despite a rural setting you are blocks away to public transportation, minutes from urban shopping and freeways. Located in the awarded Madera Elementary school zone.
