Contemporary Berkeley Hills “idea house” asks $2.7 million

Artisan materials and soft touches balance out this modern home

Conceived by area architect Robert Nebolon—who, among other things, designed this bonkers houseboat in Mission Creek—this “idea house” (a term that has a tendency to be overused) at 540 Gravatt in the Berkeley Hill “exemplifies the Craftsman movement in the Bay Area,” per the listing.

Coming in at five beds, four, baths, and 3,602 square feet, this 2016 construction boasts “artisan materials” to counterbalance its decidedly contemporary architecture.

While the home features many signatures of en vogue homes (white walls, open floor plan, et al.), the kitchen alone should elicit an audible gasp. If the views of the bay from the sink don’t thrill you, the floral patten above the stove will.

And cheers to the use of diaphanous white curtain in the dining area. A great way to tame any antiseptic interior.

Asking is $2,795,000.
