The space
This classic family-friendly home on a hillside estate above Memorial Stadium and the university. Built in traditional Berkeley style, with generous sized rooms, sturdy redwood beams and large, solid windows allowing magnificent light to fill the well-appointed space. Sturdy trellises overhung with scented wisteria to complete the sense of space, with cobbled walkways, rock gardens, ponds and mighty redwoods as part of the estate living.

Set on a natural, gently sloping transition in the woods on Panoramic Hill, the property has a creek running through it with a bridge and path leading to a beautiful hillside estate view of the San Francisco Bay. Wild turkeys, deer, a flock of wild band tailed pigeons and migrating birds co-inhabit the estate. It is walking distance to the University as well as shops, restaurants, and entertainment and miles of hiking and running trails.

The upper floor has three bedrooms and a den. Each bedroom has its own separate bath. The upper garden bedroom has a queen sized bed and den, with separate entrance. If the Bauhaus design indoor stair railing (see photo) is a safety issue for families with small children, we can provide a wrap-around barrier that is easily attached.

There is a very roomy master bedroom/sitting room with a king sized bed and bath. The third suite has a small bedroom with twin-sized trundle bed pull out bed underneath.

There is also a 2 bed room annex for overflow visitors.

There is central (forced air) heating, Wi-Fi hi-speed internet,washer/dryer. Direct TV. The Pacific Film Archives and Berkeley's many theatres are walking distance.

Guests should keep in mind that this is our family home that we rent out when we are not using it. It is not a hotel. We try our best to accommodate the needs of our guests. There are spiders, flies, insects and occasionally other critters because we live near the woods.. The house was built 96 years ago and has its quirks.

Guest access
Two acres of forest, hillside and gardens with meditation platform with vista of the Bay.

I've returned to my home in the Bay Area after a decade split between the East Coast and in Vietnam. I work in tech in SF and live in Oakland with my husband Isaak and baby. Happy to share some hidden secrets of our neighborhood and the Bay.
