Contiguous to the dining room, the galley style kitchen and breakfast area opens to the back patio. A bedroom and bath complete this level. The design with its precise and sculpted volumes elevates the space; this is particularly notable in the wood detailing, the ceiling vaulting and the superb placement of skylights.

The upper level luxurious master suite, a true retreat, benefits from direct access to a terrace. Views are stunning and sitting area with fireplace are a haven for relaxation; through frosted glass doors one enters the elegant master bathroom.

*This property is located in Oakland and has a Berkeley mailing address.


The Claremont neighborhood straddles the Berkeley and Oakland borders and features lush landscaping, curving streets that hug the canyon hills, and open space. The Claremont Hills, while in the City of Oakland, benefit from a Berkeley mailing address.  This area has many newer homes of diverse architectural styles.  The foothills or the Claremont Elmwood neighborhoods with homes on the leafy side streets provide old-fashioned Berkeley elegance, with turn-of-the-century brown shingles, revivals, prairie-, custom contemporary-, and Tudor-styled structures offering residents a place to call home within the landscaped confines. The landmark of this area is the majestic Claremont Hotel Club & Spa, a vast Victorian edifice perched on 22 acres in the hills. Three outdoor pools, 10 tennis courts, a full-service spa, a fitness club, and three onsite restaurants deliver stunning views, and the resort has become popular with generations of locals as a luxurious getaway. Elmwood's shopping district on College Avenue in Berkeley offers old-fashioned shops, access to the Rockridge Bay Area Rapid Transit (BART), grocery stores, bookshops, and flower stands. Restaurants, a movies theater, and a bakery are all a short walk away. The Claremont Canyon Regional Preserve is 208 acres of open space managed by the East Bay Regional Park District and more than 200 acres outside of the canyon owned by the University of California, Berkeley. Garber Park, a 13-acre oak-and-bay-tree woodland south of Claremont Avenue, is owned by the city of Oakland. Trails reward ambitious hikers with panoramic views of San Francisco Bay.
