In walking around the Berkeley neighborhood near our office we would pass by this old house. This gorgeous Mediterranean style home was calling out to us. When the opportunity arose to purchase it we jumped. When we got it, it was a grand home but time had taken it’s toll. It was starting to settle forward down the hill in the front and the house was dated to 1070’s style decor. We quickly took on the structural work to level out the house. Adding decks to the back and side yards opened up the house for outdoor entertaining. The top level floor plan is open with high ceilings beautiful archways welcome you from room to room. The downstairs hosts three bedroom and two full bathrooms perfect for a growing family. Spectacular bay views catch the eye from almost anywhere in the house. The end product is a restored gem that will live in Berkeley for future generations to enjoy.
