An El Cerrito home has sold for a million dollars and more on its listing price of $1.295 million. The winning bid was an all-cash offer, KPIX reports.

The three-bedroom, two-bathroom mid-century modern home was built in 1963 and features wrap-around decks accessed by sliding doors from the kitchen, living room, and owner’s suite. “With stunning wood accents throughout, this lovely home has been upgraded with double-glazed windows, radiant heat and an insulated roof,” the Compass listing says.

The home, which hit the market in April, lasted just 10 days before a sale was underway. Listing agent Kevin Tannahill told KPIX the home received 11 offers, all of which were at least $200,000 more. The owners accepted the offer which was $1.155 million above the request, bringing the final sale to $2.45 million.

“It was a mid-century modern. Mid-century modern has a following in the Bay Area,” Tannahill told KPIX. “It was a unique house, that’s what drove the price up.”


Property records show the home last sold for $818,000 in December 2013.

The high bid puts the house well above typical home value for El Cerrito. According to Zillow, the average home price for the city of East Bay is $1,143,096, a 7% year-over-year increase.
