About

Authentic Mid Century in Lush Setting

Modern touches, an abundance of light, and easy indoor / outdoor flow characterize this Mid Century jewel in the Berkeley Hills. Soaring ceilings with skylights provide a ton of natural light to the newly updated chef’s kitchen, the focal point of the great room.  You’ve got some big shoes to fill – this kitchen was the pride and joy, and inspiration, to an award winning chef.

His thoughtful design makes all that home cooking we’re doing easy.  The kitchen is the heart of any home and that is particularly true here in the enormous great room with its spacious living and dining areas.  Make sure those screens are logged into homework and keep an eye on the pasta sauce at the same time.  Between the sunroom and the great room, with sliding doors to the garden, everyone has space to work, play, and to go outside.  While the sauce bubbles, pop down to the dedicated office one last time to check on your project.  Need some inspiration?  Step out onto the balcony and look out at trees and the Bay while you figure out that thorny problem.  Aha!  Write it up, send it off, and then close the door.  You may be working from home, but you’re not living at work.  Check the sauce and then head down the interior stairs to the naturally cool wine cellar in the oversized garage / storage area and pick out a favorite bottle.  Pull the cork, and take a few minutes out with your sweetie up on the sunset patio overlooking the fruit trees.  Take in the golden evening light while the city lights start to twinkle below you as you feel yourselves unwind.  After dinner, gather in the formal living for a few minutes before walking the new puppy down to the trail at the end of street.  Look out over the entire Bay Area and up at the stars, and feel very lucky that you call the Berkeley Hills home.

Location

Gorgeous views, winding streets with a country road feel, and miles of some of the best hiking trails of the Bay area give the Berkeley Hills a tranquil, get away from it all feel in the middle of a world class city.  Hopefully it won’t be be long before we can attend a lecture on campus or see Yo-Yo Ma at the Greek Theatre.  The vibrant Berkeley Arts District, including the new Berkeley Art Museum and Film Archive, the Berkeley Repertory and Aurora theaters, Freight and Salvage, the movies, dining, and several music venues, are minutes away. Gourmet Ghetto, the home of locavore and organic cuisine, features live jazz to entertain you while you pick up the best pizza you’ll ever eat or browse the Farmers Market.  Celebrate that amazing new job at Chez Panisse – it’s just down the hill.

But while we’re at home and outdoors, thank goodness for all that the Berkeley Hills has to offer.  Start your Saturday with mountain biking with friends in Tilden and then give the pup a chance to have their fun on the UC Trails.  Afterwards, the pleasures of the Gourmet Ghetto or Solano Ave. await you for lunch.  Gregoire, whose poetry inspiring potato puffs draw a crowd, had take out down long before it became an art form and our way of life.  Walk them off as you lose yourself in the scents and sights of the Berkeley Rose Garden.  Or stroll through either, or both, of the Tilden and UC Botanical Gardens for a little horticultural inspiration.  End the afternoon with a latte at the original Peets or a tasting at Vintage Berkeley.  Then head home to prepare your own locavore masterpiece with organic produce, meats and cheeses, freshly made pasta, and hand crafted delectables – all from the North Berkeley Farmers Market.  But leave a little time in your culinary schedule.  Everything stops for the daily spectacle, the sunset.  Each one is uniquely gorgeous and stopping to take it all in never, ever gets old.
