A Midcentury Sanctuary...
4 bedrooms and 4 baths
3904 interior sqft (*per public record)
18,500 sqft lot
Nestled in the hillside and at the end of cul-de-sac resides a one of a kind mid-century sanctuary that offers the utmost privacy and expansive views of the entire San Francisco Bay area. Designed in 1951 and later expanded on by the famed architect John Hans Ostwald it strikes a masterful balance between the surrounding urban and the natural landscapes. Sited on nearly half of an acre, the grounds are private, set back from the street and studded with spectacular trees.
The living rooms showcase geometric ceilings, built in shelving and two sides of glass bringing the outside in. The architectural rhythm throughout moves your sightline across the spectacular bay and treetop vistas. Two levels of wrap around decks like a ships prow are accessed from floor to ceiling sliding doors from various rooms. The indoor/outdoor connection is pleasantly blurred. Lovely light filled living spaces, a spacious eat-in kitchen with fireplace, four bedrooms - three en-suite, ample storage, a tremendous upper level family/library room, two-car car-port and numerous patios and decks to soak in the natural surroundings. The original architecture; natural wood paneling, slate and oak floors, beamed ceilings and custom veneered cabinetry all preserved.
First time on the market in over 50 years! This is a once in a lifetime opportunity to customize a historic North Berkeley midcentury and become the next caretakers of such a treasured place in time!
