2609 College, Berkeley

Click picture for additional photos and complete listing

This Elmwood shingle-style home is beautifully preserved. Built in 1906 by Edward Seely, It appears almost as though it could be an enlarged version of Seely’s own personal residence which is one block East at 2615 Etna. The exterior treatments are quite different but the overall massing appears similar. The home on College is quite grand with its colonial revival cornice returns, dentals, and circular gable window. Inside, the finishes are equally refined with impressive circular arches with enlarged keys, loads of built-ins and four fireplaces.
