2111 Emerson is an irresistible Berkeley bungalow just four blocks from Ashby BART and three blocks from Berkeley Bowl, on a quiet, tree-lined street. 

The home strikes the perfect balance of period detail and updates, including the mother of all improvements--a modern foundation.  

Enter the gorgeous, glass-enclosed mudroom and prepare to be charmed. Newly refinished hardwood floors lead to two cheerful bedrooms and an elegant living room.  The high ceilings, pocket doors, box-beam detail, fireplace, and built-ins beautifully reflect the home's 1906 vintage. Off the living room is an eat-in kitchen which leads to a separate laundry room.  A sweet, low-maintenance backyard offers space for relaxation and gardening

Incredible location, whether on foot, bicycle, public transit, or in a car.  It’s in the center of a vibrant and eclectic community--with restaurants, coffee shops, markets, yoga studios, theaters and more--yet tucked away from the bustle. You can have breakfast in the yard, listening to the birds and watching the squirrels, and be at Ashby BART six minutes later, on foot.  

The property is sewer lateral compliant and move-in ready.

Floor Plans


You can't get closer to the University of California, Berkeley campus than South Berkeley, the neighborhood originally developed in the 1860s by the school’s predecessor, the College of California. The latter institution may be long gone, but the large, spacious, brown-shingled homes along Allston, Bancroft, Channing, and Dwight ways remain. Densely populated, the neighborhood contains some of the city’s oldest homes. South Berkeley is a mix of students, longtime residents, businesses, and homes. The major thoroughfares are Telegraph Avenue, Bancroft Way, and Alcatraz Avenue, where street vendors, bookstores, record shops, and inexpensive eateries cater to students. Nightlife is abundant, thanks to the proximity to campus, Zellerbach Hall, and Downtown Berkeley. Both the Ashby and Downtown Berkeley BART stations serve the neighborhood, as do a number of Alameda-Contra Costa Transit buses, making it a snap to get to downtown San Francisco, local airports, sports stadiums, and other locations in the Bay Area.
