Introducing 973 Keeler Avenue, Berkeley Hills Mid-Century Gem Listed for $550,000

Posted in BERKELEY on May 3, 2012 by Julie Nachtwey, the Claremont Hills Real Estate Expert

Lovely architectural jewel featuring one-bedroom, one bath and study with built-ins. Partial SF Bay Views. Lower level with separate entrance has potential.

Unusually large upslope lot with 17,000 +/- sq feet.
The house is completely hidden from view on Keeler.
Driveway winds up the hill to ample parking pad and two-car garage with storage.

Rare level lawn! Dining area opens to backyard brick patio
and what seems to be a secret garden. It’s like having your own park.

Windows frame views of the garden, trees and SF Bay. Even the bedroom has a glass door opening to the yard. The light from so many windows compliments the redwood interior and hardwood floors.

This one-of-a-kind house was designed in 1948 by
Winfield Scott Wellington, professor of design at UC Berkeley, 1937-1965. Wellington did residential work throughout The Bay Area.
