’Tis a red-letter day when a home designed by the Bernard Maybeck firm lands on the market. And this one, located in the tony Marin enclave of Ross, is a whopper.
Completed in 1906 by lead architect John White (who also conceived the Le Conte Memorial Lodge in Yosemite, which is on the National Register of Historic Places, and Berkeley’s Hillside Club, a city of Berkeley landmark), 37 Upper Road features six bedrooms, four full and three half baths, and measures an estimated 9,560 square feet.
The Arts and Crafts home comes with a separate guest residence within the home, a gym, wine room, outdoor deck, and access to numerous hiking trails.
The home recently underwent a $7 million renovation care of Bay Area architect Hans Baldauf, founding principal of BCV Architecture and former chairperson of the Maybeck Foundation. Spruced up interior details include the old growth redwood paneling and Calacatta marble in the kitchen and bathrooms.
While we’re dropping names, esteemed landscape architect Thomas Church designed the gardens. And don’t miss the circular pool, pool house, and outdoor kitchen.
Asking is $16,995,000, through Tracy McLaughlin of The Agency.
