Welcome to 47 The Crescent — a spacious and sunny haven in the Park Hills neighborhood. The inviting Mid-century architecture features mostly one-level living with an open dining room-living room layout for entertaining.
There are clean lines, large windows and vaulted, wood-plank ceilings throughout to enhance the warm, natural feel of the home. The stylish kitchen opens onto a brick courtyard presided over by a majestic redwood tree.
The main floor offers a primary bedroom with ensuite bath, two more generous bedrooms and a bathroom, plus a large family room with skylight. Downstairs is a fourth bedroom and third full bath and a laundry room, all with an additional entrance (possible au-pair or in-law suite?*)
The sellers have lived here for 29 years, and lovingly updated and maintained the home while preserving its original character and style. With expansive outlooks onto Tilden Park from just about every room, you can watch the changing skies as well as observe the many local birds and trees around you.
Close to Tilden Park trails, Lake Anza, Tilden Park golf course, the Little Farm, Steam Train and more. And if you make your way across the street to Crescent Park—you’ll find picnic tables, a playground, and sport court in this sweet place for neighborhood gatherings!

Perched above the city and offering the best panoramic views in the entire Bay Area, North Berkeley Hills is an incredibly peaceful residential neighborhood, yet not far from the hustle and bustle of the city’s more urban areas. Homes in the neighborhood are built in a variety of styles and feature spacious patio decks, manicured lawns and lushly landscaped gardens.
For even more views plus a variety of great outdoor activities, residents can take a short trip to nearby Tilden Regional Park. Park amenities vary between free and paid activities. Free activities available at TIlden Park include a beautiful botanical garden, the Little Farm, and nearly 40 miles of scenic hiking trails. For a small fee, the public can also swim at Lake Anza, take a spin on the Merry-Go-Round, or enjoy a round of golf at Tilden Park Golf Course.
Some residents in the southern part of North Berkeley Hills are within walking distance of the thriving retail district on Solano Avenue. Featuring a wide variety of stores, shops, and plenty of great restaurants, including:
Safeway Community Markets: Located at the southwest corner of Solano and Fresno Avenues, this is a great place to check off everything on your grocery list.
Noor & Sons Rug Gallery: Find handcrafted Oriental Rugs for your home, as well as rug cleaning and repair services.
Peet’s Coffee: It all started in Berkeley, and this location is ideal for your morning cup of coffee before you begin your commute.
Additionally, foodies who love a variety of cuisines are just a short walk or drive away from the infamous Gourmet Ghetto neighborhood.
Despite its elevated location, North Berkeley Hills is extremely transit-friendly. The Alameda-Contra Costa Transit District bus lines that serve the neighborhood drop residents at the Downtown Berkeley BART station for a quick commute to downtown San Francisco. Berkeley Hills residents who live near the western section of the neighborhood are less than one mile away from the heart of UC Berkeley, making it a great area for faculty and administrators to live.
