New Price! Welcome to this stunning Berkeley Hills home. Built in 1925, this residence was remodeled
about 1948 by Wurster, Bernardi and Emmons to give this special home a
mid-century feel. The living room was expanded and narrow windows were replaced by a large picture
windows to emphasize the San Francisco, Golden Gate vistas. A library was added off the living room with a French door to a private patio. The walls were paneled with hardwood. William Wurster was the first Dean of Architecture at Cal Berkeley. The
architecture building is named after him. (Drawings from 1947/8 are available.)
Main level: Enter into the grand living room with a wood burning fireplace and glorious San Francisco/Golden Gate views. The large formal dining room is perfect for entertaining. A butler’s pantry leads from the dining room to the updated kitchen with stainless appliances. There is a separate spacious breakfast room for informal meals. A first floor bedroom, full bath, half bath and laundry complete this floor.
Upper level: There are 4 sunny bedrooms and 3 baths including the master suite with dressing area. Two bedrooms are Jack and Jill bedrooms with an adjoining bath, one featuring a fireplace and access to the outdoor area above the library. The generous fourth bedroom has access to the hall bath. Unique to this era house, all bedrooms have good size closets.
Situated on almost a half-acre, the tranquil setting, with peaceful tree views from virtually every room, and ideal floor plan are equally suited for both casual living and grand entertaining - perfect for celebrating family and friends. The large level yard and patios offer a sense of privacy – a great place to relax after a busy day.
What becomes apparent with your introduction to this welcoming home is a purposeful balance between the thoughtful floor plan and the generous outdoor living. There is room for everyone and every activity.
