In the heart of Berkeley’s Claremont district, on one of its most beautiful and coveted streets, designed by John Hudson Thomas with input from the owner, H. L Dungan sits this 4BD/3.5BA majestic and magical home. The spectacular two-story redwood-paneled living room with a towering cathedral-like ceiling, dramatic fireplace and picturesque views into the garden, opens to a porch that overlooks the flowing creek. Formal dining or casual eat-in kitchen are both options. The real piece de resistance is the upper level, an expansive third floor featuring a dramatic atelier. This exciting space with its soaring ceiling and majestic window is a light-filled enchantment with versatile potential. Adjoining plus room and full bath adjacent complete this level. The opportunity to own this important example of Berkeley’s First Bay Tradition in architecture is an invitation to a lifestyle of calm among mature oaks and redwoods while living close to the much sought-after amenities of Claremont.
