1128 the alameda, berkeley, california

I probably should have been an interior designer or architect (but I hated drafting!!) or at least a real estate agent. I love looking at houses (like you didn't know that already). My husband is always teasing me because I come home with tidbits about houses that are for sale knowing everything about the property from the square footage to the kind of tile the sellers used to remodel the master shower. It's kind of a hobby of mine to peruse real estate listings.

I am almost never impressed at remodels, always wishing the owners stayed true the period and integrity of the architecture. This place is a gem. If only I had a million dollars...and a job in the bay area!

Don't you love the green canisters in the kitchen? I wonder if they'd be willing to throw those in?
