OFFERED AT $1,999,000
This is a phenomenal home. Designed by the renowned architect Joseph Esherick for the Bermak family in 1963, this property has a simplicity and grace to its many levels that is breathtaking. The living room takes full advantage of the ridiculously wonderful Golden Gate and Bay Bridge Views. The property is situated on two peaceful lots in the Montclair Hills.
There is parking for at least four vehicles and there are decks and balconies that take full advantage of the view. The upper level is home to the dining room, living room, & kitchen. There is also a full bathroom and a bedroom on this level. Down the beautiful staircase you reach the main bedroom level with master, walk-in closet, and full bathroom that opens to the wooded exterior, as well as an additional bedroom. One level lower there is a storage area, bedroom and additional bathroom.* Simple design choices give this home a wonderful, quiet beauty.
The current owners did a supremely tasteful remodel of the home’s kitchen, which opens it up quite a bit, yet is commensurate with the style and feeling of this woodsy home.
Esherick was the architect of many of the gorgeous Sea Ranch homes, and his credits include famed buildings like the Cannery in San Francisco, as well as the Monterey Bay Aquarium. In all of his work there is a delicate connection to the landscape of the property itself; his work melds seamlessly with nature.
The master suite looks out onto the waters of the Bay, and the property, like many mid-century architect designed homes, takes full advantage of the space for storage and practical uses. This luscious combination of beauty and functionality was a hallmark of the best mid-century designs. Owning this home is like owning a piece of art, one with the power to transform your life.
