William Wurster home for sale in the Berkeley Hills

William Wilson Wurster (1895 – 1973) was an influential American architect and architectural teacher at the University of California, Berkeley and at MIT.

Wurster was born in Stockton, California and is strongly associated with the Bay Area and its regional style, along with Wurster’s mentor Bernard Maybeck, the landscape architect Thomas Church, and fellow architect Joseph Esherick. Wurster designed hundreds of California houses in the 1920s through the 1940s using indigenous materials and a direct, simple style suited to the climate.

Just listed is one of his early modern creations located on Stonewall Road, just above The Claremont Hotel.  This home is fab-u-lous!  5 bedrooms, 4-1/2 baths, 4667 square feet, located on over a 1/3rd of an acre.  According to the listing agent the gleaming white walls with laquered wood floors are all indicative of Wurster’s vision when he first built the home.  The house has been fully updated with great attention to detail throughout, it features a formal dining room, large family room which opens onto a huge terrace, an internal elevator, and 2 car garage with interior access. 

Are you the type of looky-loo who likes to check out open houses on the weekends?  This is one not to miss.
