You Save $149,000
And just as we thought, it's back, gloriously restored. Actually, it's been on the market for almost 5 months and just got $149,000 shaved off yesterday. Despite some uncertainty as to which parent it resembles more- a brass band or a train wreck- the agent only took the saxophone/musical analogies/puns as far as "handsomely re-tuned." We had a look at it back in 2010 when the agent at the time gave a frank assessment (it had suffered some serious water damage) then possibly a foreclosure, and was finally sold in May, 2011 for $560,000. The 3-bed, 3.5-bath Post-Modern retains most of its signature elements- gilded spiral staircases, glass block, brass railings- along with that swoopy fireplace. Really, why buy some crappy historic brown-shingled thing in Berkeley when you can have all this up in the Berkeley Hills? See it for yourself at the open house on Sunday, March 25 from 2pm to 4pm.
