about this home's










This treasured Spanish Mediterranean Revival home is sited on a lush lot in the perfect North Berkeley hills location. Extensively refreshed in preparation for the sale, this special property is ready for you!

Lovingly cared for by three generations, this sunny home offers the best of both worlds — a peaceful setting in the highly desirable Cragmont neighborhood in the Berkeley Hills, while also located just minutes from the amenities of Solano and Shattuck Avenues.

Beyond a substantial front porch, a formal entry opens to an expansive living room large enough for a grand piano. Built in the 1920s, this property retains original period details now combined with thoughtful upgrades completed in 2019 including beautifully refinished hardwood floors, an updated kitchen with all new appliances, updated bathrooms, new landscaping and a designer color palette inside and out.

The main level includes

  • Large entry hall
  • Living room with box beam ceilings and the original fireplace
  • Plus space that has been used as a playroom and then a media/music room
  • Formal dining room
  • Refreshed kitchen with all new appliances and countertops (10/2019)
  • Pantry
  • Powder room

Upstairs includes

  • Three sunny bedrooms
  • Two updated bathrooms
  • Ample storage (a deep linen closet plus several walk-in closets)

This home has a wonderful floor plan for entertaining where most windows look out over the garden space or partial views of the north bay. The layout affords easy indoor/outdoor access from the kitchen to a private southeast-facing patio and backyard. This is a remarkably spacious and comfortable home, blocks to schools,* transit (65 bus to UCB is across the street), UC Berkeley, parks, farmers’ markets, and Tilden Regional Park.


*Any interested parties should verify school district and availability, as attendance is not guaranteed.

Berkeley Hills


North Berkeley: Cragmont Neighborhood

With its spectacular bay views, ample trees, and impressive homes, the Cragmont neighborhood, located in the north Berkeley Hills, is one of the most desirable places to live in the East Bay.

Architecturally, it’s a rich smorgasbord of Craftsman bungalows, ranch houses, Italian-style villas, Spanish farmhouses, and Tudor manors. Renowned 20th-century architects such as Bernard Maybeck, Julia Morgan, and John Galen Howard made contributions here, imbuing the landscape with a sense of history and permanence.

Although there is little in the way of commercial businesses in the hills, an extensive network of pathways and staircases link hills residents to amenities in North Berkeley. Hills residents also have access to numerous parks and green spaces. Locals can often be found rock climbing at Indian Rock Park, strolling along Bernard Maybeck’s fragrant Rose Walk, or picnicking at the Berkeley Rose Garden, considered by many to be the finest rose garden in Northern California. 

Other area favorites include the UC Botanical Garden and the Lawrence Hall of Science, where children can enjoy hands-on educational activities. Tilden Park, which has a delightful merry-go-round and steam train, is considered by many to be the crown jewel of the East Bay park system.

When the fog rolls in off the Pacific, blanketing the hillside in a mysterious mist, no place else feels more tranquil or transporting.
