3100 Colby, Berkeley

Click picture for additional photos and complete listing

This large and exceptional shingle style craftsman straddles the border between Berkeley and Oakland and it almost appears to have a façade for each city, with a substantial gable facing each street on which it has frontage. Inside, the home is equally impressive with generous rooms full of dark woodwork, built-ins and leaded glass. There are even some unusual slag glass pocket doors outside the dining room. As an added bonus, the home is beautifully furnished as well with plenty of pieces perfectly suited to such nicely preserved period interiors.
