The two repeating forms of the Midnight bronze- standing seam metal roof give this home its moniker, The Wave House.  An exquisite modern view home perfectly located, just high enough on the hill to enjoy a spectacular bay view, yet close enough to reach all the amenities of central Berkeley in just moments.  Western window and door systems allow floor to ceiling views of the bay and allow the home to open to its many generous outdoor areas. Whether it be outside seating in the front courtyard, a coffee or glass of wine on the view deck, play-space just off the lower family room, private side patio off the primary bedroom, or a soccer game sized lower yard.

Fully custom-built home, showcasing a perfect mix of truly monumental modern design, yet warm, inviting and subtle. Walnut floors and light Ash custom cabinetry and benches grace the spaces, bringing a natural esthetic into the home.  Clever nods to Mid-century and Scandinavian design inform the home’s sophisticated style.   Technologically and environmentally modern in the design approach, exceeding Title 24 requirements, the home is well prepared to pamper its new lucky owners.
