1418 Bonita, Berkeley

This picturesque late Victorian is attributed to Ira Boynton who was responsible for some of Berkeley’s showiest early homes. This particular example has seen a bit of modification over the years but the public rooms are beautifully preserved and full of great original detail. Boynton, like many of his contemporaries, was a builder first with little formal design training. But his homes nevertheless show a mature understanding of the styles of the day and an innate ability to use them creatively to his own ends.
