Perched in the lower part of the Berkeley Hills, this circa-1964 home was commissioned by local contemporary artist Tom Holland and designed by architect Jorgen Elmer. The house’s style—wood paneled, midcentury-modern, très 1960s—reminds one of prized homes in Sea Ranch, the seaside community envisioned 51 years ago along the Sonoma coast.

Last purchased in 2014, 1171 Cragmont Avenue has since undergone a gentle renovation while keeping its original look and integrity intact. Featuring four beds, three baths, and 2,395 square feet, the newly revamped abode comes with a library, wood-burning fireplaces, and arched windows, exposed beams, and chicken coop.

The new master bath by Mary Cronin of The Design Shop is a wonder unto itself, a skylight-encased dream bathroom with 180-degree views of the bay. Swoon, indeed.

Asking is $1,250,000.
