A Spectacular Remodeled Berkeley Hills Home!

Located just above Berkeley’s famed gourmet district and steps away from the Rose Garden, this dramatic 1927 Tudor stands tall like a storybook castle. An extensive and exquisite renovation has just been completed -- from the top of its turrets to the bottom-floor ADU. All systems have been upgraded while original features have been lovingly maintained.

You enter the main living level through an arched front door in the south-facing turret, you’ll find silky Venetian plaster walls, original mahogany ceiling beams, original curved mahogany doors, oak floors and a custom entry bench -- crafted from lath reclaimed from the plaster walls. The sunny living room has a partial view of San Francisco,and a woodburning fireplace, updated with a Venetian plaster façade. 

Cooking in the large chef’s kitchen will be a joy with its quartz counters, a Subzero refrigerator, Wolf double ovens, Wolf built-in microwave drawer, Thermador 48” gas range, Thermador dishwasher, and a Uline wine cabinet. The dining room – with a custom mahogany table made from reclaimed wood from the remodel -- has distinctive double doors that flow out to a sunny, private side yard.

The main stairway off the foyer also has Venetian plaster walls and an original wrought iron railing. It leads to the main bedroom level with 3 bedrooms and 3 baths. Each room/bath have unique personality and charm. The stunning master -- with vaulted redwood ceiling, LED fireplace and 2 closets -- has large windows, providing a panoramic view of San Francisco and the bay. The en suite bathroom – inside the front turret -- has marble throughout, an extra-large shower, dual vanity, custom black stainless-steel towel bars made to follow the curve of the wall and even more views of the bay.

As you climb more stairs to the top level, you’ll find the bonus, finished attic space. This non-conforming plus space has the original half bath, plus potential for a living area and bedroom. The best part of this floor is a round room with exposed beams – beneath the witch’s cap of the main turret. 

Back down to the ground level is an extra room for storage or use as a utility room. A large laundry room has lots of space for folding and storage. Another bonus: The base of the turret has been converted into a wine cellar with custom redwood wine racks with ample room for the serious collector.

Also on the ground level is a new, legal, accessory dwelling unit. It’s a fully separate space with separate entrance, a full kitchen with stainless appliances, a washer/dryer unit, an LED fireplace and a cozy sleeping area. The bathroom features a soaking tub and all new fixtures. This is a great space for guests, as a rental or extended living.

In today’s high-tech era, a home doesn’t get any smarter than this. Features include CAT6A and coaxial wiring, Zwave wireless lighting that can be managed by voice or apps, Nest thermostats throughout and a Samsung smart-home hub to manage wireless devices. There’s even a Noritz high-flow tankless water heater with a voice/app-controlled recirculating pump, so hot water anywhere in the home is only a few seconds and a voice command away.

This neighborhood is a walker’s paradise and boasts gracious homes designed by renowned architects. It’s a 5-minute walk to Codornices Park and the Berkeley Rose Garden. In 10 minutes, you can be dining in at places like Saul’s Deli, the Cheeseboard and the world-famous Chez Panisse. A 20+ minute walk will take you to UC Berkeley or the heart of downtown.

There is so much more about this home to share with you.Please contact Liz Rush for more information.
