Evoking a contemporary craftsman aesthetic, 1641 Arlington Boulevard offers views of Berkeley Country Club’s rolling green hills to one side and views of the San Francisco Bay on the other. Situated near Tilden Nature Area, this private, El Cerrito abode spans 3,590 square feet of livable luxury. Offering an open footprint with rooms that flow freely from one to the next, the four-bedroom, three bathroom, two-half-bath home has been newly constructed with the most modern of amenities.

Beyond a freshly landscape front yard, an oversized entry is adorned in stately columns and outfitted with towering windows. Across the threshold, guests are greeted by a grand entrance punctuated with soaring, twenty plus foot ceilings and an industrial-inspired spiral staircase that ascends upwards from the formal foyer. Boasting hardwood floors throughout, the ground floor is soaked in natural light and offers endless windows that frame outdoor greenery.

An expansive front room affords limitless entertainment options for family gatherings, flowing seamlessly into a fully-equipped chef’s kitchen furnished with a trio of windows above the sink. Appointed with top-of-the-line appliances, the kitchen is completed with custom-built cabinets and a sunny breakfast bar. A first-floor guest suite is accompanied by a full bath, perfect for hosting out-of-towners and in-laws. Ornate light fixtures appear suspended in thin air, a halo of light illuminating a formal dining room and cozy family room, while French doors transition outward to a back patio poised for weekend brunching.

Climbing the spiral stairway to the second floor, the landing opens to a sun-lit family room finished with built-in library console, the perfect flex space for a home office or kids’ play area. Down the long hallway lies a laundry area, two spacious bedrooms with a shared bath, and an expansive master suite that offers views of the Golden Gate Bridge and surrounding coastal communities. Beyond his and her closets, a master bathroom is lined in luxurious European tiles and finished with a modern glass shower, and spa-like soaking tub. The two rear bedrooms have both been appointed with sliding glass doors that lead to an outdoor balcony, perfect for sipping sunset rosé against a backdrop of Bay Area lights.  

Beyond a detached garage, the front yard has been newly landscape with drought resistant greenery, while a paved, private backyard offers ample space for kids and pets to roam.  Nestled into the environment and hidden from plain view, this private family home is the ultimate retreat for burgeoning families and commuting urbanite alike.

Floor Plans


El Cerrito means "the little hill" in Spanish, and the town that is perched on the hill above San Francisco Bay offers easy access to Interstate 80 and Interstate 580 to Marin. Hillside homes along the curving streets deliver sweeping views of San Francisco and sunsets over the Golden Gate Bridge. El Cerrito's main shopping corridor is undergoing a rebirth, beginning with Rialto Cinemas Cerrito, which was restored from the former Cerrito Speakeasy Theater. Access to open space and parkland is extensive, with Arlington Park, Cerrito Vista Park, Hillside Natural Area, Huber Park, Poinsett Park, and Tassajara Park & Pottery Studio all nearby. The Ohlone Greenway is a popular trail with hikers and bikers. The University of California, Berkeley is several miles away, and two Bay Area Rapid Transit (BART) stations, at El Cerrito Plaza and El Cerrito del Norte, make commuting easy. El Cerrito Plaza is a major shopping center housing grocery stores, restaurants, bookstores, a pharmacy, and smaller mom-and-pop stores.
