958 Hilldale, Berkeley

Click picture for additional photos and complete listing

A little over a month ago we featured a large storybook style home with a great staircase at 956 Hilldale in Berkeley. That house sold promptly for slightly under the asking price, and now the house next door is on the market. It is an interesting comparison, because both homes were obviously designed by the same person. The current listing at 958 lists the builder as one Bryant Paul which is a name that we are not familiar with, but he was clearly very capable. There is a lot of similarity between the homes: the large turret enclosing a spiraling staircase with scrolling plaster railing, the leaded glass windows, and great woodwork. So if you were kicking yourself for missing out on 956, here is the rare second chance you were waiting for.
