Overview

Expect Perfection—This newly constructed, eco-modern paradise with postcard-perfect views, in an
established North Berkeley neighborhood, delivers on every level. Reflecting superlative Bay Area taste,
this exemplary new home balances multiple levels of ultra-luxe living with panoramas of the Bay, a true
indoor-outdoor footprint, and rare multi-featured landscaped grounds. The design utilizes an artistic
palette of sustainable materials, walls of glass, premium finishes, and artisan fixtures, all applied without
a hint of over-indulgence. The result is a strikingly peaceful environment that heals the spirit and
nurtures the soul. All of this is only minutes from the area’s most vibrant hubs, including the shops and
restaurants of Solano Avenue, the gourmet temples along Shattuck Avenue, and U.C. Berkeley.
From Dawn… Mornings begin as the sun peeks over the hills of nearby Tilden Park, awakening the
blossoms that surround the water garden and coaxing seedlings in the vegetable garden to life. The
outdoor profile of this 9,000 square foot property is unforgettable, an almost unheard-of Berkeley rarity
with both large expanses of flat lawn and multi-level terraces that run the width of the house, furnishing
lounging and entertaining areas framed by unparalleled Bay views. Block out some time in your calendar
to indulge in the hammock perched at the outer edge of the lower deck-- temptation will likely get the
best of you. The rooftop garden terrace perched atop the detached two-car garage is another perfect
place to escape with a favorite novel.
Throughout Fulfilling Days… The presence of nature is everywhere. In true California style, even the
main entrance blends indoors and outdoors, introduced by an al fresco lounge area that adjoins the
great room for easy entertaining, and segues through the industrial chic glass front door to the foyer.
The grand-scale public rooms meld all four elements with a sleek gas fireplace, soaring views, high
ceilings, and concrete floors, leading to an open concept kitchen that represents the pinnacle of top-tier
design with its sophistication and impeccable restraint. Even with top-of-the-line Miele and Bosch
appliances and a huge soapstone island with counter seating, there is nothing superfluous here; the eye
is constantly delighted by horizontal lines echoed by the rod pendant lighting fixture and open shelving.
To Dusk… Follow the serenity straight to four masterfully crafted bedrooms and their companion baths,
refuges to foster time well spent. On the main floor, the residential wing extends to one bedroom with
outdoor access, equally suitable for use as a media or family room, plus an additional bedroom with
garden vistas. Upstairs, the glamorous primary suite has views for days (and nights!) through its wall of
windows, along with a spa bath with rainshower and deep soaking tub. The long hallway with svelte
storage cabinets connects to a laundry and second en suite bedroom with Ritz Carlton panache. You’ll
sleep even more soundly knowing that this new construction is backed fully by a ten-year structural
warranty, just one of the many privileges of being the original owners of this freshly finished
masterpiece.
