This charmer near Tilden Park was built (by hand, according to the realtor) by Joe Neilands, a noted bio-chemistry professor at UC Berkeley, and his wife, Juanita. In addition to numerous eco-friendly upgrades added over the years—the couple was reportedly passionate about eco-friendliness—the real sell here is its preserved midcentury design.

Featuring two beds, one bath, and 1,476 square feet, 185 Hill Road comes with period details like floor-to-ceiling windows, exposed beams, vaulted ceiling, wraparound deck, and wood paneling. Even the kitchen has been revamped but maintains its era vibe with nary a hunk of Carrera marble in sight. Beautiful.

Asking is $1,199,000.
