Features & Updates

First Impressions

This dramatic home is located on the corner of Creston Road and Latham Lane, in a tranquil + friendly community atop the Berkeley Hills.  From the moment you approach the house you know you are somewhere special.  Behind the gorgeous, moss-covered fence you will find the front + rear gardens, which have been carefully orchestrated to include earth-friendly varietals and large redwood, spruce, maple and sequoia trees for privacy.  The freshly-painted exterior is inviting and the grand, solid teak front door is ready to welcome you home.  The neighborhood sits adjacent to Tilden Park, and views of the hillside are visible from the backyard. 

Kitchen, Dining & Living Room

Aesthetics were not an afterthought when re-designing the living space. The open kitchen, dining and living rooms, combined with the wax-covered plaster walls, gives the home a three-dimensional feeling, and the vertical walls are balanced by the wood-planked horizontal floors.  The exquisite kitchen would cater to the fussiest of chefs: Viking range, Sub-Zero fridge, and Miele dishwasher; Plantation teak cabinets with stainless steel panels, Italian mosaic backsplash, English Kirkstone counters.  The living room boasts an incredible built-in sofa for added function and comfort and overlooks the sculptured mantle.

Bedrooms + Bath

Upstairs you will find two bedrooms complete with fresh paint and beautiful wood floors.  The bathroom is sleek + updated with custom cabinetry, English Stone counters and a tub for relaxing.

Downstairs

Follow the sculptural, cantilevered stone slab down the stairs and you will find an office space with plenty of shelves to hold your library of books.  A portion of the garage has been turned into a bonus room for hobby, storage, playing video games, or jamming on the guitar.  Don’t miss the cedar closet.  Additional storage is available in the basement and garage. 

Backyard

The backyard plays on the idea that anything can happen outdoors.  Sit out on the deck with a cup of coffee and watch the sun as it rises over Tilden Park.  Set up a bbq and add a table on the flagstone patio for dining alfresco or surround a firepit with cozy chairs and enjoy evenings under the stars with friends.  There is a grassy area for cartwheels, lounging, or gardening, and a side yard for storing.

Studio

The spacious and fabulous Mid-Century Modern studio has been tastefully updated and includes a sleek kitchenette, newer appliances, cork floors, chic bathroom, and separate laundry.  Set behind the main house, this serene space offers privacy in an intimate and comfortable setting.  Supplement your mortgage, host friends + family, or use it as an in-law.
