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!


The Claremont neighborhood straddles the Berkeley and Oakland borders and features lush landscaping, curving streets that hug the canyon hills, and open space. Homes on the leafy side streets provide old-fashioned Berkeley elegance, with turn-of-the-century brown shingles, revivals, prairie-, custom contemporary-, and Tudor-styled structures offering residents a place to call home within the landscaped confines. 
The landmark of this area is the majestic Claremont Hotel Club & Spa, a vast Victorian edifice perched on 22 acres in the hills. Three outdoor pools, 10 tennis courts, a full-service spa, a fitness club, and three onsite restaurants deliver stunning views, and the resort has become popular with generations of locals as a luxurious getaway.
Elmwood's shopping district on College Avenue in Berkeley offers old-fashioned shops, access to the Rockridge Bay Area Rapid Transit (BART), grocery stores, bookshops, and flower stands. Restaurants, a movies theater, and a bakery are all a short walk away. 
The Claremont Canyon Regional Preserve is 208 acres of open space managed by the East Bay Regional Park District and more than 200 acres outside of the canyon owned by the University of California, Berkeley. Garber Park, a 13-acre oak-and-bay-tree woodland south of Claremont Avenue, is owned by the city of Oakland. Trails reward ambitious hikers with panoramic views of San Francisco Bay.
