2609 Mathews Street is located in the South West Berkeley/ San Pablo Park neighborhood. The center piece of the neighborhood is San Pablo Park which is one of Berkeley’s oldest parks. Established in 1911 the property was acquired from the Mason-McDuffie company which was the oldest and largest developers in the Berkeley and was the builder of numerous homes in the area.

The home at 2609 Mathews Street is a prime example of a Craftsman Bungalow style home that was popular in the early part of the 1900’s. When standing at the street the home shows all the characteristics of the craftsman style with its wide tapered columns at the front porch and its low roof line with and exposed rafters. There was a new roof and rain gutters installed in late 2019.

Stepping through the front door you will be in a small formal entry. Looking to the right, you will see the living room fireplace with wood stove insert. On either side of the fireplace are bookshelves and small windows that provide afternoon light. From the entry you will also see a formal dining room with built-in china cabinet, built-in cabinets and bookshelves are typical of a craftsman home. Two, of the three bedrooms are located adjacent to the dining room, they both have south facing window.

The bath has recently been updated with a new tile floor, vanity, toilet and medicine cabinet. The deep and long original bathtub is still in place. The kitchen is original and is awaiting a new owner update.

The wide hallway off the kitchen has storage and laundry facilities and leads to the third bedroom and back yard.

In 2019, the home interior was freshly painted, the wood floors have been refinished and new light fixture have been installed. The sewer lateral is compliant.

Stepping on to the back porch you will be greeted by spacious flat yard with mature Camellia bushes and a lemon tree. There is a concrete patio that would be an ideal location for an Accessory Dwelling Unit (ADU), if permitted by the city.

Parking on the south side of the home will accommodate several vehicles in the driveway.
