Designed by famed architect Julia Morgan in 1922, this elegant Claremont home commands unobstructed panoramic Bay views! Sited on a knoll in one of Berkeley’s most desirable neighborhoods on a premium double lot, it has been meticulously maintained throughout. Marked by gorgeous elegant detailing, such as high ceilings, gleaming hardwood floors, arched doorways, original leaded glass windows and many built ins, this regal home just sparkles with the type of luxury and sophistication rarely found in today’s homes.
The main floor features a large sun-filled living room with a commanding fireplace and grand formal dining room next to a spacious remodeled gourmet kitchen with top-of-the line appliances. The primary bedroom suite, also located on the entry level, enjoys stunning Bay views and has a beautifully remodeled bath.
Upstairs, three large bedrooms with views and flexible layouts share one bathroom. A full height basement includes a large laundry room, workshop, garden room and ample storage. Surrounded by park-like gardens with elegant plantings, fruit trees and seating areas, it offers maximum privacy and wonderful outdoor spaces for entertaining, gardening and play. A two-car garage on the street level is spacious and practical.
The home is located within a short distance to the Claremont Hotel, Elmwood and Rockridge shops, BART, walkways through the neighborhood and the great outdoors. Truly a find!
