A rare Golden Duplex*, 60 Panoramic Way is a 6BD/3.5BA, 3022 sq ft classic Brown Shingle Craftsman perched in the Berkeley Hills with breathtaking views of nearly the entire bay including the Golden Gate and Bay Bridges and SF and Oakland skylines. The home’s versatile floor plan allows for a single-family home with four bedrooms on one level and two additional private suites. Alternatively, the home can serve as a duplex with a separate full-service finished basement apartment. The home includes a formal dining room, spacious kitchen with breakfast nook, luminous sunroom, family/media room with home theater, and two dedicated parking spaces. The multi-level rear yard is ideal for entertaining and includes a fanciful chicken coop – sans chickens. Nestled in gentle hills, the home is moments from UC Berkeley with its cultural arts center and botanical gardens.

Shaded by leafy trees and bordered by flowering shrubs, a rustic stone staircase leads to the traditional front porch. Vintage diamond pane windows flank the burnished front door, and inside the home retains the character of its era with hardwood floors, wood-paneled walls, timber and beamed ceilings, and vintage-style light fixtures with push-button light switches.

Beyond the open foyer, the gracious living room features a series of double-hung windows across the front of the home providing a wide view of the bay – an ideal spot for contemplating the beautiful sunset. Along the hallway, the spacious formal dining room is awash in sunlight pouring through a wall of casement windows above a charming built-in window seat. A brilliantly tiled fireplace graces one wall, and a glass door provides access to the expansive rear yard.

A perfect work triangle, the u-shaped kitchen features distinctive tile countertops and backsplash, and beautiful custom wood cabinets provide ample storage. The kitchen includes a five-burner cooktop and built-in oven, and a bay window over the deep sink fills the room with light. The adjacent breakfast nook is tucked into a second bay window, and to one side a distinctive fireplace of rough brick adds charm and character. Also on this level are a convenient powder room and laundry area.

Upstairs are four bedrooms and a large split bath with a shower over tub and a vanity topped with custom tile. The two bedrooms at the front of the home are set into wide bay windows with stunning views of the bay and city skylines and ample space for a cozy window seat or overstuffed chair for watching the sun set over the bay. At the back of the home, a third bedroom features French doors that open onto the luminous sunroom, which might also serve as an office or yoga studio. The fourth bedroom features a multipane glass door to a wooden bridge leading to the expansive patio in the rear yard.

Up a second flight of stairs, the finished attic is a true hideaway that might serve as a family room, game room, or guest suite with a private bedroom and bath. This level includes a home projector, so might serve as a media room as well. Five operable skylights in the peaked roof catch the sun, and built-in shelves offer space for books, games, or favorite collectibles. Running the length of the home, the attic suite features a large window at the front with an amazing bay view, and an ensuite bedroom at the back with a skylight and casement window overlooking the enchanting rear yard.

One of Berkeley’s many architectural treasures, the home is included on the National Register of Historic Places.
