Mid-century Berkeley home gets $300,000 price chop

When a home gets a $300,000 price cut, you know it’s not a cheap house to begin with. But then this doesn’t look like a cheap house — far from it.

For fans of mid-century modern architecture — and those who appreciate plentiful acreage, additional living space and views — there’s a lot to recommend the 3-bedroom, 2 bathroom home at 636 Wildcat Canyon Road.

Built by F. Rosenthal in 1956, the home came on the market in early September priced at $1,950,000. Since then it’s had two price reductions, and is now listed at $1,650,000.

The property is sited on over an acre of land and the views are onto the Tilden hills; there are the tall ceilings and walls of glass one associates with the mid-century style; and there’s a separate 1-bedroom guest house included in the price tag.

The home is open on Sunday November 13, 2:30-4:00 pm. See The Grubb Company’s website for full details.
