The Amazing Berkeley Hills Lodge – Once a Quarry Building, now versatile residential/income property

Filed under: Uncategorized — serkes @ 9:36 pm

More than 30 years ago I rented a wonderful apartment in the Berkeley Hills. It was between the Temple of The Wings (2800 Buena Vista Way) and Hume Castle (2900 Buena Vista Way).

The scent from the Eucalyptus trees was delightful, and it was magical to wake up and be above the fog which blanketed Berkeley. On chilly evenings I had a roaring fire in the huge fireplace.

Why am I telling you this? Because you now have the opportunity for your own special place in the Berkeley Hills.

Imagine the most amazing loft, with golden wood floors, a wide deck across the entire front, painted ceilings, and a huge fireplace of your own.

And the ability for renters to help make the payments.

Historic rock quarry building converted to a residence in 1917, could be an amazing home, or combine top two units for utterly unique grand lodge living space. Stunning wood details, balcony with bay and Mt. Tam Views, stepped down the hill.

Four Units
The Top – high above Shasta Road
The Loft – Amazing! Will it remind you of a Cathedral… or the computer game Myst… perhaps an Amphitheater… or, with its huge fireplace, one of the Maybeck on Buena Vista Way or Maybeck Twin Drive?
Unit The Third – the most conventional
Unit The Lowest – Gothic Windows and an intriguing layout

This is one of our hand crafted homes where pictures are worth 10^3… or 10^6 words.

Are you interested in shared housing? Always wanted a piece of history?… Thinking of a loft, but really want a view?.. have an extended families (in a unique Berkeley kind of family) or son(s) or daughter(s) attend UC Berkeley? Then this might be just for you!
