DESCRIPTION:

851 Euclid Ave is an elegant contemporary home sitting near the crest of the Berkeley Hills. Designed by the celebrated Peter L Harris, this home was skillfully crafted in 1991 by a general contractor for himself.

The abundance of natural light is magnified by a dramatic spiral staircase surrounded by west and south-facing windows. Oak hardwood floors, wood framed cabinets, and a floor plan designed to provide separation of space provide a beautifully calming lifestyle.

The spacious chef’s kitchen comes equipped with a suite of appliances including a down-draft induction cooktop, double ovens and new wine fridge. A quartz-topped island opens to the living room, perfect for entertaining. A formal dining room adjoins the patio, a lovely setting for dining to the tranquil sounds of the waterfall and koi pond. The large connected living room opens onto a west facing deck to take in the views of the Golden Gate.

The master suite features a walk-in shower and deep, jetted tub. A spacious walk-in closet is with an adjoining private deck. The two other bedrooms are also on the upper level, and share a charming second bathroom.

This post-Loma Prieta build has structural specifications not often found in this neighborhood, including modern code compliant seismic features, 5/8” plywood sheathing, and 16 piers in bedrock.

The surrounding landscape is very clean with stairs on both sides leading to the terraced back yard with Japanese Maples and a mix of bluestone and core-ten steel faced retaining walls.
