I-880 freeway namesake Admiral Chester Nimitz, more noteworthy for being Commander in Chief of the United States Pacific Fleet during World War II, retired peacefully in this Spanish-Mediterranean gem in the Berkeley Hills. Riddled with gorgeous, untouched interiors and accents, it’s now back on the market.

Built in 1925, it features five beds, four baths, and 3,308 square feet. Among many period details, the home’s arched doors and windows are particularly lovely, with the flower crown over the front door being a whimsical touch.

First time on the market since 1967 (although it was listed and then delisted in 2010), it has been gently renovated over the years. A wonderful look into the past. The tile work in the bathroom, yellow with Spanish detailing, will make you regret any and all antiseptic renovations.

Asking is $1,995,000.
