Berkeley midcentury, with dizzying woodwork, asks $1.6M
April 29, 2020
Although midcentury fatigue has set in for many, some specimens still deserve your full attention. Take, for example, this lovely number in the Berkeley Hills, which lands on the market for $1.6 million.
Spread out across 3,055 square feet, 30 Bay Tree Lane comes with five bedrooms and three and one half bathrooms. Built in 1960, this snazzy home features soaring ceilings decked out in patterned narrow beams, a theme that can be found from the living room to the kitchen to the bedrooms.
Of particular importance is the stone fireplace and hearth, adding textural diversity to the wood-heavy main living space.
The kitchen and bathrooms have been upgraded in recent years to reflect today’s contemporary tastes, which, luckily, pair nicely with the clean midcentury aesthetic found throughout this home.
Also, the buyer has first right to buy the adjacent lot for a cool $500,000.
