Designed by John Hudson Thomas, there’s much to fawn over at this sprawling circa 1913 home tucked in the Berkley Hills’ Thousand Hills community.
Featuring four beds, four baths, and 5,696 square feet, 1936 Thousand Oaks Boulevard covers roughly one half acre of space. The old fireplaces, tile work, and—swoon!—bathrooms are a delight.
But the real treat here is the ballroom—yes, a wood-lined ballroom replete with a large stage fit for a live swing band. It must have been used for cotillions or some such fabulousness. Think large crinolines, tux, tails, formal courting rituals. Lovely.
Asking is $3,150,000 making this Berkeley’s second priciest home on the market, a distant second behind Spring Mansion at 1960 San Antonio Drive asking $7.5 million.
