Property Description

This sublime home was remodeled & expanded in 1964 by the owner and noted Bay Area architect, Hal Theiderman. It has many classic elements of the Mid-century style such as floor-to-ceiling windows and indoor/outdoor flow to the beautiful gardens that literally surround the home. Set at the end of peaceful Lake Dr. overlooking Wildcat Canyon & Tilden Park. As you enter through the gold painted door discover many lovely details like a jewel box kitchen, sliding wall panels, and the vintage clay lanterns that hang at the entry and in the living room clerestory. A breathtaking living room features wood paneled walls, a raised ceiling, a modernist brick fireplace, and built-in shelves. A formal dining room opens to a roof deck. Down the spiral staircase a marvelous principal bedroom with its own fireplace & a wall of windows opening to the garden awaits. In the opposite wing, there is a large office space and a large ensuite bedroom all opening into the magical rear garden & courtyard.
