A Beautiful Berkeley Hills Home

The home is a wonderful example of late mid-century bay region modernism. It is full of wood paneling and lofts, large glazed openings and skylights. The home is unique, all made of wood. People in the neighborhood call it "the tree house". Remodeled in the 80s by an architect who studied at UC Berkeley in the 70s and who considered the home to be a design study on maximizing the use of space while incorporating elements of the then-existing cottage. His renovation was featured in the Summer 1981 issue of "Better Homes and Gardens" (see link).
The house has 2 bedrooms but we ask to use only the one that has a queen bed with a half bathroom. There is also another small bathroom with bath tub and shower. The office is in the garden.

The home is surrounded by trees giving it a real sense of privacy. It's a perfect place for writing, relaxing or enjoying all the outdoor activities nearby. There is a deck with bay views.

We have a cleaning lady coming twice a week. She will come also during your visit. She is family and I trust her completely. She will keep the house clean and change your towels and bed sheet.

About Me
Hi. My name is Ludovica and I am Italian. I moved to the US 10 years ago for work and met my husband few years later. . I work at UC Berkeley as a researcher and my husband is in the tech industry. I love my house. It's a place where I feel like I'm on holiday every night when I come back from work. Enjoying the sunset from the deck is one of my favorite things to do after the kids go to sleep.
