1329 Norvell Street was born almost 100 years ago as a one bedroom cottage and has been thoughtfully transformed into a Mid-Century wonder. Now donning 3 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms with approximately 1,476 sq. ft. of living space* situated on a beautifully landscaped 3,700 sq. ft. lot**, this home offers bright open spaces and carefully considered upgrades throughout.
Entering the home you’ll experience the dramatic open floor plan with 14’ vaulted ceilings***, built-in display niches with dimmable lighting and custom-made windows that provide both light and privacy. The tastefully modern kitchen anchoring the living and dining areas features a flex zone refrigerator, soft-close cabinets and drawers, center cooking island and a breakfast bar.
All 3 bedrooms offer high ceilings and both bathrooms provide on-demand water heaters at each sink, focused on water efficiency. The main bedroom suite features a private patio, Elfa closet shelving and a spacious bathroom with a tub, separate shower, two-person vanity and radiant heated flooring. The third bedroom offers a second entrance and is outfitted with potential for future ADU possibilities****.
The landscape was created with an artful aesthetic in mind to both enhance the curb appeal and outdoor enjoyment, as well as provide serene views from inside the living spaces framed by the intentionally-situated windows. The yard features a sculpture from local artist Doug Heine, many carefully selected drought-resistant plants as well as drip irrigation and gopher wire grids to help maintain the longevity of the design.
This single-story home is conveniently situated between 2 BART stations, local parks and many shops and cafés. There is not much to want for at 1329 Norvell Street.

Surrounded by tree-lined hills, views of the San Francisco Bay, and located just a few miles from the shoreline, El Cerrito is a beautiful town in the Bay Area. The neighborhoods in El Cerrito reflect the town’s Mid-century charm and appeal; and although most of the homes look like they were built in the 1940s and 1950s, they have been updated to satisfy modern tastes! The area is rich in music history as well: El Cerrito is the birthplace of John Fogerty and the famous rock band known as Creedence Clearwater Revival. El Cerrito is one of the best places in the Bay Area to raise a family. With early education schools such as Children’s Garden Montessori plus several great elementary schools, middle schools, and El Cerrito High Schools, your kids will have plenty of great learning opportunities. The community is also ideally located for UC Berkeley students and faculty. A short trip from the El Cerrito del Norte station can have you on campus in 20 minutes. Whether you love golf, hiking, or several other outdoor activities, El Cerrito has an option for you. Berkeley Country Club has been a staple in the community for nearly 100 years, and its beautiful 18-hole golf course provides breathtaking panoramic views of the Bay Area Bridge. Hikers love Hillside Natural Area; provides over 100 acres of open grasslands, and is a great place to take your dog on a walk. If you prefer to take your dog to a park where they can interact with other furry friends, Point Isabel Dog Park is a great option. El Cerrito Plaza, located near the intersection of San Pablo Ave and Fairmount Avenue, serves several purposes. First, it is El Cerrito’s premier shopping center; stores include a Lucky supermarket, a CVS, a Verizon store, and several popular fast food restaurants. It also features a BART station which makes commuting to and from San Francisco super convenient. Locals skip the bland national chains and opt for long standing local burger and dog joints like Big Al’s, Nation’s Giant Burgers (HQ’d in EL C) and Caspers Hot Dogs. Some days feel right out of the 1950’s when residents can enjoy a Nation’s Giant Burger, then head across the street to check out a flick at the art deco Cerrito Theater (built in 1937). If you’re craving more than just fast food, you will be amazed at the diverse array of local restaurants. Notable restaurants in El Cerrito include: The Junket: Enjoy a unique fusion of German and British cuisine when you visit this unique deli in El Cerrito. Larb Thai Food & Tapas: One of the Bay Area’s highest rated Thai restaurants, locals and residents alike enjoy both the food and the atmosphere. El Mono: Savor the flavors of authentic Peruvian cuisine in a relaxed atmosphere while gazing at the artwork on the walls. From great food and shopping to convenient access to public transit, plus scenic views at every turn, El Cerrito has it all!
