A gardener’s paradise awaits in the Berkeley Hills at 515 Woodmont Avenue

This wonderful home in the charming North Berkeley community known as Berkeley Woods offers a one of a kind property that has become a beacon in its neighborhood of sustainable living and urban farming. MariLark was established in 1997 to honor the memory of Marie and Larkin Smith who originally built the home in 1941. To commemorate their dedication and passion to their home and the local community, the MariLark sign was carved and placed on the corner by their great-grandnephew and current owner. Over the decades the property has been an inspiration for the creation of more urban farms and to advance the sense of urgency about the importance of plant biodiversity. Surrounded by bountiful gardens, a level lawn and peaceful meadow, garlic, squash, arugula, lettuce, kale, zucchini and an assortment of heirloom tomatoes have been cultivated here over the decades. 

The welcoming retreat rests on a knoll, with green shutters providing eye-catching curb appeal. Both bedrooms bask in natural light, with one bedroom enjoying a bank of windows that wraps around a corner. Wood flooring lines the interior, while a dining area stands between the living room and kitchen. With French doors in the living room and dining area opening to sunny decks, there is a wonderful indoor-outdoor feel throughout.  Just beyond the property one can access beautifully scenic trails in Wildcat Canyon and enjoy all of nearby Tilden Regional Park’s attractions including an 18 hole golf course, picnic areas, the Botanic Gardens and more.  Seemingly a world away, 515 Woodmont is near public transportation and just minutes to many beloved shops and restaurants.
