Anyone tired of Berkeley’s exceedingly quaint and bucolic tomfoolery can bathe the contemporary glow of this ultra-modern home.

Designed by architect David Stark Wilson, 54 Vicente comes with soaring ceilings, pitched roof lines, and dramatic geometric flair. The home was built using industrial and natural materials, as well a good amount of color.

The main house is comprised of two structures, connected by a glass hallway, featuring a two-story dining, living and kitchen area. Materials used here include plaster and a bamboo ceiling with exposed hardware. There’s also a temperature-controlled wine cellar here too. Upstairs you’ll find the sleeping quarters and a master bathroom with views.

There’s also a second structure, accessible via a breezeway, comprised of a garage and a cottage.

The courtyard comes with a pool, a spa, an outdoor fireplace, and seating areas overlooking the bay. In all, this audacious home comes with five bedrooms, five and one half bathrooms, and 4,775 square feet.

Asking is $12 million. The listing, which is off-market, is through Anja Plowright and Colette Ford of the Grubb Co.
