The house has been in the same family for more than 50 years and is well maintained, retaining original details such as stained glass windows and colorful tiles from the 1930s in the kitchen and bathroom. Located in the Thousand Oaks District of Berkeley, about a 10-minute drive from the city center and the University of California campus. The nearby main road, Solano Avenue, is about one mile away, lined with markets and casual restaurants. Closer to the house (about a 5-minute drive or 10-minute walk) is the Kensington Farmers’ Market, where vendors sell locally produced goods on Sundays.
Interior: A short walkway connects the sidewalk to the front door, which leads to a bright foyer with arched porches and Spanish tile floors. Through the glass door to the left of the entrance, there is a living room with hardwood floors, mint green ceilings, large windows facing the street and the back of the house, a brick fireplace and original wood trim.
On the other side of the foyer is a dining room with more hardwood floors and a door to the sunny breakfast room, covered with red and white tiles. The tiles continue on the kitchen, countertops and backsplash.
Directly opposite the front door is a glass-enclosed solarium with a built-in bench that offers views of the surrounding mountains. A built-in bar; and glass doors leading to a small terrace.
The corridor outside the kitchen and foyer leads to the master bedroom and bathroom. The bedroom has large windows and a deep cabinet; the bathroom next door has light green tiles and a white bathtub.
A staircase leads from the foyer to a wide corridor on the second floor. One end is a room with a window sill; the other is the master bedroom with hardwood floors and a walk-in closet. The main bathroom next door is paved with pink and gray tiles, and behind the frosted glass door is a combined bathtub and shower cubicle.
There are also two rooms in this corridor, one is big enough for a queen-size bed and the other is smaller; they share a full bathroom with a built-in wardrobe.
From the kitchen, a yellow-tiled staircase leads to the lower level, where there is a study room that leads directly to the backyard and a half-bathroom.
Outdoor space: The balcony outside the corridor on the second floor is enclosed by wrought iron fences, and there is enough space for tables and chairs. The outdoor terrace of the family activities on the main floor extends down to the terraced backyard, which has a large number of mature trees for shade. The attached garage can accommodate one car.
This mid-century house is located in the Hollywood Hills, just north of Sunset Boulevard. This is the first time it has been listed. Although it has been remodeled many times over the years, each refurbishment maintains its original characteristics. The property is less than a 10-minute drive from Coldwater Canyon Park, which has a playground and flat lawns, and a 15-minute drive from hiking trails winding through Franklin Canyon. Also nearby is Greystone Mansion, a popular venue for weddings and filmmaking.
Interior: Steps lead from the steep driveway to the main entrance. The original wooden doors are flanked by stained glass with plant patterns.
On the right side of the entrance hall is the living room, which is designed to be cantilevered over the site, creating a feeling of being in the woods. The floor is hardwood; the walls and several built-in bookshelves are wood panelled; the fireplace and fireplace are made of dark brown tiles.
Opposite the living room is a corridor with one side leading to the kitchen and the other leading to the family room; outside the corridor is a whimsical half bathroom with camel-printed wallpaper. The kitchen has hardwood floors and windows facing the hillside; across the side is a dining room with similar views and more wooden walls.
In the family room, an exposed brick wall forms the fireplace and extends to the outdoors, through sliding glass doors, to the terrace.
An open staircase with wire railing leads from the foyer to the second floor, and the three bedrooms are located along the carpeted corridor. At the top of the stairs is a guest room, currently used as a home office. The half-bathroom with half-bathroom is affixed with the classic blue-green floral print from the 1960s, which complements the green dressing table. Opposite the hall is the master suite, which has a private balcony with views of the Hollywood Hills, and a bathroom with a long dressing table and an original sunken red bathtub. At the end of the hall is a room with a seating area; next door is a complete bathroom with a shower cabin.
Outdoor space: The large terrace next to the family room has a hot tub, and there is enough space for a dining table and barbecue. Surrounded by mature trees, it provides privacy without obstructing the city view. There are two parking spaces in the garage.
Booneville is often referred to as the gateway to the Anderson Valley, an area in southern Mendocino County, famous for Pinot Noir and sparkling wine, which is produced in large quantities there. The house is located off Highway 128, with easy access to the vineyards and tasting rooms in the area. The highway is also the main route to the coast, and the communities of Mendocino and Little River are about an hour’s drive away. Santa Rosa is about the same distance; San Francisco is just over two hours’ drive away.
Indoor: From the street, a long driveway leads to the flat part of the property, where there is a garage and two houses.
The first house has a wrap-around porch and an open-plan living area behind the front door. The floor is hardwood and the vaulted ceiling is wood. The front of the living area is currently used as a dining space, with a chandelier for lighting, a fireplace built into a wall and a door leading to the porch. Behind the dining area is a kitchen with black and white checkerboard floors and open shelves. A few steps away is a comfortable seating area, next to another door on the porch. From the kitchen, a staircase leads to the lower level, where there are two bedrooms of roughly the same size, with wooden walls painted white. Full bathroom, half bathroom and laundry room are also on this floor.
A paved path leads from the back of the first house to the second house, similar in style and layout. Here, the lounge area is located in front of the open space, and the fireplace is made of colorful tiles. Opposite the living area is a kitchen with Viking series and open shelves. A corridor full of bookshelves leads to the back of the house. There are two bedrooms, both large, with alcoves that can be used as home offices or reading corners; each has an en suite bathroom with a walk-in shower. .
Outdoor space: Each house has a wrap-around porch with views of the rolling hills of the house. A paved path connects the house to the outdoor dining area, which overlooks the hillside dotted with trees. The independent garage can park four cars and is equipped with solar panels. For fire safety, all three structures have metal roofs and concrete siding.
