While not a design from the mind of the noted Arts and Crafts Movement architect, this Berkeley Hills gem, built in 1940, was certainly inspired by Bernard Maybeck, bringing to mind Rose Walk.

Coming in at four beds, three baths, and 1,803 square feet, 1444 Glendale is described in brokerbabble as ideal for “quiet family living” or “for intellectual pursuits.”

Highlights include the brick fireplace, vaulted ceilings, exposed beams, and a curious little square door that serves as either a pie cooler, gnome’s entrance, portal into John Malkovich’s mind, or who knows.

The lower level also features a separate studio with its own entrance, as well as two private patios.

Asking is $1,100,000.
