1406 Hawthorne Terrace, Berkeley CA 94708

Luxury contemporary home in exclusive North Berkeley captures sweeping views of the San Francisco Bay including the Golden Gate Bridge, Alcatraz, the Bay Bridge and more.

The home at 1406 Hawthorne Terrace was designed by John Newton, owner of a Berkeley design firm along with developers and partners Jose Antonio Godinez and Joseph Huayllasco. The 3,500-square- foot home revitalizes the property that is tucked back from the street with a private walkway entrance. It is designed with an open concept floor plan, crisp clean lines, sophisticated and neutral finishes and walls of Fleetwood windows and pocket glass doors that create a seamless flow to the outdoor entertaining space.

The rich tones and horizontal lines of red western cedar compliment the lush front landscaping, built-in planters and walkways and Ipe wood decks all designed by Bay Area Landscape Architect Tracy Westphal. The interior was transformed by Gary Faber of the Berkeley based Nurture Source Designs.

Gorgeous white oak floors flow throughout the three levels connected by a floating staircase with LED lighting, high ceilings, and TPO roof, a commercial grade roof material that is highly reflective and does not leach out chemicals which are harmful to people and the environment.

The home features four bedrooms and three and a half bathrooms stylishly designed with ceramic tile and floating vanities, an upper level dedicated to the master bedroom suite with a large walk-in closet and luxurious bathroom, and entry level with bedroom, bathroom, family room, wet bar and separate entry.

The great room includes a living room with linear fireplace and dining room both with walls of glass that open onto the deck, and adjoining gourmet kitchen artistically appointed with quartz counters, oversized island, red western cedar cabinetry, Thermador appliances and walk-in pantry.

If that’s not enough, this property has an ideal location within about two miles of the U.C. Berkeley campus, and less than a half-mile walk to Berkeley’s colorful Gourmet Ghetto featuring international cuisine, coffee and juice bars, bakeries and renowned restaurants like Chez Panisse. Walk less than a quarter-mile to the popular Berkeley Rose Garden and Cordornices Park or venture out to enjoy miles of hiking and biking trails, picnic grounds, the Botanical Gardens, the historic carousal and more at the nearby Tilden Regional Park.
