It’s a red-letter day whenever one of Daniel Lieberman’s homes hit the market—and today is that day. Up in the Berkeley Hills, where many of his works can be found, the Frank Lloyd Wright protege, in cahoots with fellow Wright student Donald Hoppen, created this stunning specimen.
Many of Lieberman’s signature touches can be found here: recycled and sustainable materials, hand-hammered copper, stone and brickwork, spiraled exposed beams, and multi-paneled floor-to-ceiling windows galore.
The property has been updated over the years, but the majority of its original integrity remains intact.
The home is as unique as the architect himself. Known as a curious sort, Lieberman, who died in 2015, was an unconventional man. Following his death, the Point Reyes Light noted, “He would comport himself in layers of wool clothing during summer heat, and kept a trove of artifacts—including old cars—at his home in Inverness.”
Featuring four bedrooms, four bathrooms, and 3,987 square feet, 150 Bret Harte Road asks $2,790,000; it’s listed through Sean Walsh and Neal Ward of Compass.
