The main house was designed by James Plachek in 1914. Plachek combined a Craftsman interior with a Prairie School exterior. Rivaled only by Walter Ratcliff as Berkeley’s architect from 1910 to 1940, Plachek designed the main library and its branches, as well as City Hall, firehouses, and the police station.
The charming detached cottage/in-law was designed in 1990 by Morgan Hall, a Marin architect. This hybrid structure was carefully designed to mimic the principal residence and is in perfect harmony with the main house.
- Large, sunny, mature garden landscaped by owner/Master Gardener, with small deck at the top back of garden (see garden book on display in main house for some of the historical plant and flower varieties in the garden).
