650 Hilldale has a gorgeous 3-bridge view of the east Bay and beautiful original details. In the same family for over ½ a century, there have been upgrades over the years including water heater, furnace, electrical, plumbing, drainage and a brand-new roof. This fixer has beautiful redwood trusses & beams, original random plank oak floors and a very large 8,225 SF lot. An expansive lower level could be transformed into an additional family room, bedrooms, or a separate unit. The possibilities are endless with a combination of original charm, land, views, plus a welcoming Berkeley hills neighborhood to boot. On the top floor, there are two bedrooms and a bathroom. On the entry level, there is a bathroom, kitchen, living and dining room. The bottom level has a half bathroom, a large flexible space, another smaller space that exits to the back yard and a back storage area that was once a dark room. The lower lot has a mild enough grade to imagine leveling, landscaping and creating elegant access to the outdoors. Unlimited potential!
