Architect and teacher at the UC Berkeley and M.I.T, William Wurster is best known for his Bay Area residential designs (especially this Presidio Heights gem that snatched $11.3 million). One of his works, located in Orinda, landed on the market this month. And it’s a treat for any fan of his work.

Featuring seven beds, six baths, and 5,818 square feet, 515 Miner Road sits on 1.19 acre creekside parcel. All of it landscaped by Tommy Church. And don’t forget to peek at the pool, added years later after the home’s completion.

The main level of the home includes four bedrooms and three and a half baths. And the lower level has an additional three bedrooms and two baths, including a separate au pair residence. Which is to say, two families could live here comfortably.

Asking is $3,850,000.
