DESCRIPTION

This magnificent home is an architectural masterpiece in the Claremont Hills on one of Berkeley's most desirable streets. Designed by architect Jack Hillmer, 49 Vicente Road features Frank Lloyd Wright-inspired design seamlessly fusing redwood, glass and stone. This property is an absolute retreat with the aroma of a relaxing redwood forest away from the hustle and bustle, yet minutes to all the East Bay has to offer.

Featured in the San Francisco Chronicle and numerous architectural publications, this home also offers an approximately 100 sq.ft. detached artist studio ideal for indulging the painter or sculptor, or for extra storage.

"It's a perfect marriage of two of the major movements of modern architecture, Frank Lloyd Wright organic architecture and the structuralism and functionalism of Mies van der Rohe. You can see the structure. Yet you're wrapped up in this warm redwood instead of concrete."- Owner
