A historic family home in Piedmont comes with a treat: a speakeasy. So chic it feels and looks like a New York City watering hole. So handy it’s ideal for childhood birthday parties when mommy or daddy needs liquid comfort.
The speakeasy is right off a ballroom (back when ritzy families all had ballrooms), the walls festooned with impasto painting. According to the seller, the bar portion of the space was taken from a saloon in San Francisco and installed in the house during Prohibition.
But this gorgeous watering hole isn’t all this 1928 Spanish Colonial Revival has to offer. Designed by Claude B. Barton, 227 Crocker comes with six bedrooms, five full bathrooms, two half baths, and roughly 5,400 square feet.
Highlights include period tile work in the bathrooms, renovated kitchen, tiled arches, and coffered ceiling in the foyer.
Asking is $3,795,000.
