Available for the first time in nearly 60 years, the home offers a glass-fronted living room with views of the San Francisco Bay.
New to the market in Berkeley, California, is a hillside home that captures picturesque views of the city below and San Francisco Bay beyond. The property, which features a soaring great room at its center, was designed in the early 1950s by local architect R.W. Ratcliff. Last sold in 1963, the home has been lovingly restored and maintained by its current owner, who even added a quant writer’s cottage in the side garden.
Inside, the home’s post-and-beam construction is on full display, with expansive panes of glass and wood beams in every room. Other features include exposed brick, concrete and tile floors, and wood-clad ceilings and walls. A vintage tiled bathroom and a stained glass window in the living area add to the home’s charm.
Offering two bedrooms and one full bathroom, the 1,435-square-foot home is located along a winding residential street with easy access to the city below, as well as nearby hiking trails.
