Set like a jewel on a cloistered corner at the Berkeley Oakland border, this exquisite Mediterranean was featured on the 2019 Berkeley Architectural Heritage Association Spring House Tour. Designed by architects Morrow and Garren and built in 1922, âit presents a romantic vision based on fantasy Hispanic themes, â per BAHA editor Daniella Thompson. The gracious 5BR/3++BA plan includes kitchen and breakfast room open to the family room and two patios. A terrace off the living and dining rooms leads to the south lawn and gardens; there are raised beds for veggies behind the garage. Extensively renovated and lovingly maintained, it offers elegant modern living, easy indoor/outdoor flow, three lush landscapes, and enchanting architecture in convenient, coveted Claremont Court. Stroll to the nearby pleasures of this fine, historic neighborhood â Peet's Coffee, Rick and Ann's, Star Grocery, the Claremont Club and Spa â and enjoy easy access to the freeways, BART, Elmwood, Rockridge and Cal.
