This treasure is not remarkable from street views, but it offers an extraordinary lifestyle in the heart of North Berkeley and has been owned by the same family since 1965. The main house alone offers a range of settings and spaces, from the lofted, beamed living room to the secluded garden dining room. The updated baths and kitchen are distinctive and charming. The bedrooms offer Bay view and garden outlooks – serene whether enjoying the greenery or looking out at the water and changing sky.

A studio with bath can be opened wide to the adjoining courtyard and opens to the same Golden Gate view. With the retractable skylight roof, it can be a fabulous art, party or guest space.

The outdoor areas share the fabulous views, from the large pool to the lawn above with a tiled spa beyond the small trees. A pool house with full bath and storage adds to the convenience. Stretching from street to street, you can enter from the driveway uphill or by the staircase from San Luis Road below.


North Berkeley Hills
Perched above the city and offering some of the most sweeping panoramic views in the entire Bay Area, the quiet, residential North Berkeley Hills neighborhood offers peace and solitude not far from the hustle and bustle of the city’s more urban areas. Homes in the neighborhood are built in a variety of styles and feature manicured lawns and lushly landscape gardens. Some homes are hidden from the road by large trees, while others offer views of the San Francisco and Oakland skylines, the Golden Gate Bridge, Alcatraz Island, and Mount Tamalpais. North Berkeley Hills backs up against Tilden Regional Park, which offers numerous opportunities for outdoor recreation all year long. Some residents in the southern part of North Berkeley Hills are within walking distance from the thriving retail district on Solano Avenue, though those who live at higher elevations will likely need to drive to most places. Alameda-Contra Costa Transit District bus lines that serve the neighborhood drop residents at the Downtown Berkeley BART station for a quick commute to downtown San Francisco.
