2577 Buena Vista, Berkeley

The Berkeley fire of 1923 claimed over 500 structures including a number of homes designed by Bernard Maybeck and it significantly altered the way Maybeck and his contemporaries would build moving forward. The Giesler house that we feature here today would be the last of his trademark shingle style homes and it signaled the end of an era not only for Maybeck but also for Berkeley as a whole. The home has recently undergone a thorough restoration and it is in beautiful shape – well worth a visit while it is on the market.
