There’s No Place Like Home with this magical parcel comprised of a mansion-sized main residence, a self-contained two-bedroom satellite home, and nearly two and a half acres of stunning East Bay hillside, all accessed by a hidden semi-private lane shared only with neighbors. And oh, the views! Here, approaching the crest of the hill, you’re embraced by tranquil parkland and jewel-toned panoramas of the entire San Francisco Bay. Hidden behind private gates and naturally sequestered by lush greenery and mature trees, the grounds are a fairytale wonderland of gardens, broad patios, lounge areas, even a water garden and spa. This property has been the pride and joy of one family for generations and this rare invitation to be its next stewards won’t last long--there’s simply nothing like it in this highly prized area near UC Berkeley, the Claremont Shops with delectable Fournée Bakery and Peet’s Coffee, and the Elmwood district with its perennial favorite restaurants.

Celebrate art and life. This sumptuous estate shuns any whiff of cookie cutter conventionality. Instead, it casts an enchanting spell, echoed by Mother Nature’s own abundance on display in the verdant and blooming gardens. The brick paved parking area leads to entertaining-ready patios punctuated by whimsical life-sized sculptures of frolicking figures and nuzzling deer. All five elements achieve balance in outdoor living areas: a lounge area flanked by a pond, a water garden with fountain, firelit seating areas, even a meditative labyrinth. These al fresco sanctuaries adjoin main interior living spaces, creating a quintessential California indoor-outdoor experience. The 2.33-acre expanse of undeveloped land is more than just a bonus—this pristine parcel adjacent to the Claremont Canyon Regional Preserve is just across the slim alleyway, framing a hillside trail. This is truly a place where you can escape it all and find your inner Zen.

Discover inspiration in the flagship five bedroom, four bath home, a majestic three-level Berkeley Tudor with a striking profile that measures up to the nearby silhouette of the legendary Claremont Hotel & Spa. The main floor has old-world elegance with ornate woodworking, open beam ceilings, and period built-ins in regal rooms made for entertaining, including a living room with fireplace, dining room, library, half bath, and separate den. The warm and welcoming feel of the kitchen belies its plethora of recent, chef-friendly updates, including an island with prep sink, two ovens, gas range with grill, and chic pendant lighting. The full breakfast area and restaurant-sized pantry make sure everyone leaves satisfied. A family room with window seats opposite a built-in media console segues to an outdoor patio. Upstairs, the residential floor centers around a primary suite with a room-sized walk-in closet and incomparable views of the two iconic bridges and spectacular sunsets. In a separate wing, a huge office has equally compelling panoramic views and a fireplace, adjacent sauna, and fresh-air balcony to ensure on-point productivity. Two additional bedrooms and a guest bath complete this level. The bottom floor has endless possibilities with two more bedrooms sharing a Jack & Jill bath, well suited to private multi-generational living; a second family/media room adds a festive note with a wet bar.

Admire the sylvan setting and mesmerizing ambience of the second two-bedroom, one bath home—this is no guest cottage, but a completely self-contained address sharing the same unforgettable views of the city skyline, the Claremont Hotel twinkling in the near distance. With a clean, organic Berkeley energy, the living room is bright and cheery with vaulted ceilings and ubiquitous skylights. The primary bedroom with walk-in closet shares access to a deck perfect for enjoying a morning cappuccino. Sleek and updated, the kitchen boasts a gas stove, dishwasher, and stylish linen pendant lighting. A second bedroom with skylight could double as a sunny office. Click your heels, you won’t want to let this one get away!
