2729 Elmwood, Berkeley

Click picture for additional photos and complete listing

Today we feature a substantial Elmwood period revival designed by Walter Ratcliff. The home is one of the largest of Ratcliff’s many Berkeley commissions and it is lavishly embellished with his trademark mixture of details from a variety of sources. Ratcliff’s work is always carefully composed but this example is especially picturesque with a proliferation of enormous brackets and oversized casework throughout. It is an impressive piece of design by a prolific local talent.
