Original architectural details bring to life the poetry of this sweet 2+ bed, 2 bath Mediterranean-style MacGregor. The vaulted ceiling of the grand living room features exposed wood beams and decorative iron work. Original wall sconces, an ornately tiled fireplace, and two Juliet balconies further enhance the Old World charm.

The flexible bonus room downstairs was previously used as a third bedroom. It features a separate entrance and a full bath. This house is in move-in condition with new kitchen appliances, fresh paint, and recently refinished random plank hardwood flooring.

Albany is a biker and walker’s paradise, and on this special, tree lined street, you’re just a half block to Solano Avenue amenities, two blocks to the Transbay bus stop, under a mile to the El Cerrito BART, and Memorial Park is right around the corner. Rated “very walkable” by

This formerly working-class neighborhood once housed the pipe fitters, welders, and shipbuilders that worked for Henry Kaiser during World War II. Today, Albany is home to a diverse group of professionals who support the local schools with a passion.

Solano Avenue, with its incredible array of restaurants, independent cinema, and shopping, is proof that there's more to Albany than its stellar school system. And because Albany is small, flat, and sunny, it's a walkable neighborhood, with Solano Avenue as its east-west axis. Bakeries, boutiques, and bistros thrive on Solano. The annual Solano Avenue Stroll, which takes place the second Sunday in September, shows off all 26 blocks -- from the Landmark Theaters Albany Twin theater, which shows an eclectic mix of first-run blockbusters to small, independent features, to the family-run Sunny Side Up cafe -- and is the perfect place to start your exploration of Albany.
