Dramatic Thousand Oaks Mid-Century

Distant Bay views from this significant and dramatic mid-century on an oversized private lot that perfectly blends extraordinary design with the convenience and updates for today’s contemporary lifestyle. Sited in the coveted Thousand Oaks neighborhood just across from Great Stone Face Park, where you have privacy, nature and walkability at the same time. 
 
The spacious 2-car garage, the only structure visible from the street, is stunning with its walls of windows overlooking the gardens and offering views of the city and beyond. Enter the property directly across the street from Great Stoneface Park past a zen-like front yard and expansive patio, surrounded by mature landscaping with natural granite boulders typical for this neighborhood. The large main patio invites lounging and bird watching, with serene views of the mature trees and landscape.  

This absolutely unique and stunning mid-century modern is meticulously maintained and renovated throughout, it preserves many of the original details while boasting countless modern updates. Kitchen, living and dining areas seamlessly connect in an open floor plan that is perfect for entertaining and relaxing. Experience perfect indoor-outdoor flow through the tasteful combination of well-maintained natural materials along with design features such as skylights, floor-to-ceiling windows, vaulted ceilings and spacious decks.
 
Inside, 3 sunny bedrooms and a large primary suite have beautiful nature vistas from every window as well as ample closet space. The beautifully updated baths boast modern appliances and sophisticated finishes. A bright gourmet kitchen with top-of-the-line Viking appliances, custom cabinetry and stone countertops evokes an air of luxury. Ample storage, laundry room and plus spaces add convenience and comfort. The design of the home and the grounds is attributed to mid-century architect Carlton Arthur Steiner who had an architectural firm in Berkeley in the 50’s and designed several well-known civic buildings at the time.
 
Step into the back yard via wide wooden steps to find an oversized Japanese-style “lodge” which adds 1,000+ sq ft of additional space and is evocative of a Zen sanctuary – sliding exterior walls invite nature in and fill the space with subtle muted light. A former pool house, this structure provides a unique and flexible space for work, parties or workouts. With a level grass area and multiple opportunities for planting and play, this serene oasis is a sanctuary for the eyes and the senses.

 In the heart of Thousand Oaks and close to nature, this home feels secluded and private, yet is located just a few minutes from transportation, shops, cafes and restaurants with easy access to Berkeley's famed walking paths leading to Indian Rock, Solano Avenue, Kensington Circle, nature and more. 

Rare and extraordinary!

about this

Neighborhood

Thousand Oaks is a neighborhood in North Berkeley, located at the base of the Berkeley Hills. The principal shopping area is Solano Avenue, along the southern edge of the neighborhood. There are also two smaller clusters of shops on the northern edge of Thousand Oaks, across the county line in Kensington on Arlington Avenue and on Colusa Avenue as well as the Northbrae shopping area and the Monterey market. The neighborhood is primarily residential, mostly consisting of single-family houses built in the early 20th century, sometimes with In-law apartments, as well as a handful of apartment buildings.

When the neighboring city of Albany was incorporated in 1908, its borders were drawn to exclude the area north of Solano Avenue and east of Curtis Street that would become the Thousand Oaks area. Originally an unincorporated area north of Berkeley, it was built as a commuter suburb at the northern terminus of three rail lines and includes the Thousand Oaks Knoll, a rocky extension of the Berkeley hills in the northeastern part of the neighborhood. Several large rock outcroppings in the eastern edge of the neighborhood were turned into public parks or incorporated into private yards and there is an array of walking paths connecting the residential neighborhood with streets and parks
