Location, location, location! This fantastic home is in the heart of Berkeley's Gourmet Ghetto and has access to all that this coveted neighborhood has to offer. Walk to your favorite restaurant, grocery store, wine shop and if you need to get to San Francisco…public transit and Bart are right there. Traditional charm but now with a modern appeal make this spacious home (with a giant gathering kitchen to die for) perfect for urban professionals as well as a growing family home.
This custom built home began in 1950 as a true mid-century…not only by its built date, but also by its style and volume. We were proud to acquire this home from the children that grew up there and who's father built this house. Originally a modest single level family home…it has expanded over multiple thoughtful additions to nearly 3200 sq feet. This home is located on one of Berkeley's most coveted streets and has “top of the world” views. One of our biggest challenges to date, this home has been transformed and reconfigured to meet today's lifestyle.
Designed in 1959 by then California Berkeley Senior Architect student Michael Pease, this remarkable post and beam home was a creative and collaborative effort among his peers and professors…the results are a striking pedigree home with handsome lines and sophisticated architectural design. Nestled in a verdant secluded setting, this amazing home has been artfully restored and updated while preserving its privacy, style, space and views.

SOLD. After a few previous additions and a recent flip attempt, this home cried out to be rescued by Bee Renovated and given some serious aesthetic resuscitation. Located up a private road and sited on a secluded lot, the great potential we saw in this ugly duckling has become reality.
SOLD. Views! Architecture! Location! Words to describe this custom built mid-century home c.1965 and on the market for the first time in its history. Bee Renovated was fortunate to acquire this home from the estate and receive it in near original condition. This project is a response to a welcome and familiar challenge: How can we design a modern home within a historic shell?
