Two open houses in Berkeley, more clear heart redwood than you can shake a stick at. At the north end of town, 2577 Buena Vista Way, the E.F. Geisler House from 1924, by Maybeck & White. Three bedrooms, one and half baths, looks like it needs a new kitchen, $1,025,000.00. On the south side of the UC campus, is 2601 Derby, the Gifford McGrew House, designed by Maybeck with input from others in 1900. Five bedrooms, three and a half baths, currently asking $1,395,000.00 having been recently reduced about 100K. Both are open Sunday August 25 from 2-4. Brown shingle open houses are as catnip in the East Bay. Expect crowds.
