TRANSPARENTLY PRICED! Available only until 8/18. A rich & storied past! Welcome to this grand, elegant 1908 Edwardian beauty & its must-see 1980 rear cottage. The front house features a beautiful light, original built-ins, and woodwork, coved ceilings, leaded glass, warm wood floors, & 3 "plus" rooms in the finished third-floor attic. The top-floor deck view spans the Berkeley Hills and San Francisco cityscapes. The rear cottage is a stunning work of art designed by acclaimed architect Ned Forrest (whose impressive portfolio includes Frog's Leap Winery and the French Laundry restaurant), who stated that the home was "designed and built under the spell of Bernard Maybeck....a fantasy idea of building a renaissance palazzo using shingles in the manner of masonry". The soaring ceilings and repurposed materials create a magical, whimsical feel, and the layout enables flexible uses. The rear patio sits amidst mature foliage. This special property is less than a half-mile to the rapidly developing downtown core, UC Berkeley, BART and the newly refurbished Ohlone playground. 98 Walkscore and 95 Bikescore! Important upgrades including seismic, 400 Amps electrical, separated utilities and HVAC in cottage. OPEN Sat & Sun 8/12&13 from 2-4pm.
