Although midcentury design is (mercifully) again on its way out, there’s still something to be said for the homes born of that era. The clean lines. The vaulted ceilings. The exposed beams. And now the price tags, which are exceedingly high.

Take, for example, this lovely specimen in Berkeley that hit the market for $1,375,000.

Featuring three bedrooms, two bathrooms, and 1,880 square feet, 5 Maybeck Twin Drive comes with all of the aforementioned midcentury accents, as well as hardwood flooring, clerestory windows, brick fireplace, and views of the bay.

And there’s wood. Lots of it. So very much wood. From the walls to the ceilings to the cabinetry, the organic theme runs throughout the home with abandon.

But the most interesting part of this home is right up front: the terrazzo entrance floor in the foyer and a floor-to-ceiling window around the front door, which sets this home apart from other midcentury abodes.

Also of note, the carport, which fits two vehicles, has a lift that can take people down to the main entrance. Fun.
