Nestled between storybook and traditional homes, a contemporary wonder rises in Berkeley. But this ain’t any old ultra-modern Bay Area construction. Neither open floor plan nor Carrara marble kitchen island can be found here. Phew.
Instead this Chris Parlette-designed home, located at 1147 Camelia, offers heaps of positive contrast to its bucolic surroundings. (Parlette also conceived this industrial-chic Stinson Beach home, now asking $2.5 million.)
The urban bungalow remodel made a complete transformation from its 1920s look. A second story was added during the 2012 overhaul, as well as a two-story glass wall at the rear.
Recycled and sustainable materials are now the dominant main theme, as evidenced by the industrial metal and wood elements running throughout the space.
Featuring three beds, two and a half baths, and 1,901 square feet, the home was most recently featured in the American Institute of Architects’s East Bay tour.
Asking is $1,225,000.
