The return of good weather and the start of the second quarter appear to have mustered some sellers out of hibernation in the East Bay. At least in Berkeley, the last week has seen some beautiful custom mid-century homes come on the market (see my last three posts). Today I have one more to add to that list, and though it is not associated with a recognized Bay Area architect, it has clearly been very thoughtfully designed and constructed.
The house appears to be in great original condition, with interior spaces that feature large expanses of exposed wood, glass, and brick. The views from the living and dining spaces are breathtaking, and one can imagine the space being quite impressive at night when lit by the fixtures tucked between the rafters above the windows. The house has not been on the market in almost sixty years, and this continuity of ownership shows in its exceptional state of preservation. Even the kitchen looks to be mostly intact with some great period details.
