DESCRIPTION:

Originally built in 1911, this English Tudor style manor was designed by San Francisco architect Charles Oliver Clausen (known for many iconic Russian Hill, Pacific Heights and Marina residences) for Loretta and Alfred Suckling. In 1941, the home was converted into four apartments.

The current owners acquired the property in 2010. It has been lovingly restored and converted into four uniquely designed condominiums with beautiful common gardens. In 2012, the project received the Berkeley Architectural Heritage Association (BAHA) Award for Exterior Renovation and Garden Design in Conjunction with Major, Exceptionally Well Executed Improvements.

Unit D is a quiet, top floor, unit with abundant period windows and architectural detailing throughout. The eat-in kitchen features a private balcony, stainless steel appliances, Rohl Fireclay sink and handcrafted cabinets. The bathrooms feature custom inlayed tile, marble counters, tiled floors, glass shower enclosures and Phylrich faucets. The downstairs bathroom has an extravagant walk-in shower, large designer mirror and Bosch washer/dryer.
