QUINTESSENTIAL BERKELEY

Berkeley, California
Location
  • Berkeley, California
  • In a neighborhood that was the hub of Berkeley Bohemia of the 1920s, home to artists, scientists, inventors, writers and musicians, 1051 Keith Avenue was in the center of it all. Rumor has it that Rudolph Valentino visited here; that Janis Joplin and Jimi Hendrix stayed in adjacent cottages when they performed in Berkeley. Built in tandem with the house next door, reportedly by a set designer for the 1920’s silent movie industry, 1051 Keith Avenue is sited at the first rise uphill from the Gourmet Ghetto.
    You enter another world: ascend stone steps through an enchanting garden surrounded by majestic trees and a cascading waterfall; pause on the large front deck and enjoy privacy and stunning bay views. The entry columns alert you to the artistry to be found inside: unique geometric wood floors, statement fireplace, decorative plaster finishes on walls and ceilings. This is one of those rare homes that will amaze and delight its next fortunate owners with each homecoming for many years to come!
