Modern Mansion on Berkeley Hilltop
6 bedrooms, 5.5 bathrooms, 8,100 square feet
High in the hills of Berkeley, California is the opportunity to buy a home with unrivaled San Francisco Bay views. This modern masterpiece on top of the world was designed by Robert Swatt of Swatt Miers Architects. The home is situated at the highest elevation in Berkeley and Oakland, and was designed to enhance jaw dropping, 300 degree San Francisco Bay and five bridge views, including Mt. Diablo and Mt. Tamalpais. The top level of the six bedroom, three level home is essentially a complete home including a master bedroom suite, kitchen, breakfast room, living room, dining room, library and cantilvered roof terrace that dissolves the separation between interior and exterior access. Materials include elegant Halila limestone floors from a single quarry in Jerusalem, Honduran mahongany ceilings, and Japanese black rock. The master bedroom suite is separated by a nine foot pocket door. This private sanctuary includes a master bathroom, sitting/media room, office, laundry, and huge walk in closets.
