When home building was an art form, Berkeley’s Panoramic Hill was identified as the premiere location for prominent architects and home builders. Walter Steilberg, known by some as Julia Morgan’s engineer, was one of a distinguished group of master architects who identified this hillside next to UC Berkeley as the perfect place to set down roots and create what came to be known as one of the most respected collections of homes inspired by the Arts & Crafts movement. The neighborhood is surrounded on three sides by the natural environment, and provides stunning views of campus, the Bay, Marin and San Francisco. The winding paths through Redwood trees and the Beaux-Arts staircase often host tours of architecture students and architecture enthusiasts.
This property consists of three homes: the main home on Orchard Lane, a 12-room residence made up of two 2-story wings that flank a 3-story octagonal tower; the cottage (currently occupied) on Panoramic Way; and the Mediterranean cottage on Mosswood, contracted with the Fabricrete construction invented by Steilberg. Together, these properties and the land they occupy are referred to as the Ferguson-Steilberg Family Compound. Having never been available for sale before today, the opportunity to become the steward of the next chapter in this compound’s lifetime is unique.
