“Better, not bigger,” is a phrase made famous by architect Sarah Susanka and her series of books entitled, “The Not So Big House.” It also happens to be a perfect depiction of 4625 Perry Street… Through a deliberate focus on concepts such as space, light and order, there’s a different kind of “more-ness” to this remarkable home.
The current owners’ emphasis on well-being and simplicity have transformed this home into something truly special. Thoughtful connections between the inside and the outside take center stage, while extending the living space; and handmade artisan touches, like the cleverly designed walnut seating in the dining room, bring a depth of character well beyond expectations. This is decidedly NOT your typical mid-20th century bungalow. It’s a reinvention of what a bungalow can be at its very best. To say that it has been lovingly cared for doesn’t scratch the surface. Every major component has been updated. New windows and doors, insulation, siding, and roofing, interior trim, lighting, tankless hot water heater, a/c and so much more have all been replaced. Simply put, it’s done and done really well.
And yet, perhaps its greatest attribute is the connection to the greater Highlands and Berkeley neighborhoods and the city beyond. Living here doesn’t just put you in the midst of the very best parks, trails, shopping and restaurants that the city has to offer. It extends where you live into how you live, and there’s nothing small about that!
