Perched on a steep and wooded slope in the Panoramic Hill neighborhood of Berkeley, California, the midcentury-modern residence at 564 Dwight Place overlooks the San Francisco Bay with impressive views of Mount Tamalpais in the distance.
The two-story dwelling was built in 1955 and features an all-redwood interior. Floor-to-ceiling windows offer sweeping vistas from the primary gathering spaces on both levels.
On the upper floor, a refreshed kitchen with quartz countertops sits near a quaint dining area bordered by sliding glass doors that open to a covered deck with ample space for al fresco meals. A freestanding fireplace in the living room adds to the home’s cozy feel just steps away from one of two en suite bedrooms in the 2,036-square-foot residence.
In addition to an en suite bath with a skylight, the primary bedroom includes a peaceful lounge area with large picture windows that look out onto a Zen garden. An outdoor stairway connects this part of the home to a private office, or "Zoom room," on the lower level.
Downstairs, the two-bedroom dwelling hosts a wet bar area, a private study with built-ins, and an additional bathroom. Scroll on to see more of the 1955 Berkeley residence, now listed at $1,395,000.
