Henry Hill’s Bay Area homes are quintesstial mid-century, making the most of the natural environment, playing with light, shadow, and angles.

This pristine, preserved Berkeley home is a perfect example of his style– asking $995,000.

The home

Built in 1951, the home is 1,904 square feet, spread over two stories. There are three bedrooms and three bathrooms.

Listing agent Aleso Gourhan tells SFGate the home has been in the same family almost since it was built: This is the first time 1151 Woodside Road has been on the market since 1955.

The mid-century aesthetic has been completely preserved here: Indeed, it looks like it could be Hill’s original vision.

Large, almost wall-sized windows soak the living room with natural light; wood floors and a stone hearth create an earthy patina.


A formal dining room is bordered by trees.

The kitchen is a retro-magic time warp, and includes that clever little nook so many mid-century homes have, a place where home chefs might record recipes, where bills might be paid, where plans might be made.

Upstairs a master bedroom offers Berkeley Hills views. There’s also a dark wood paneled office with a similarly endless vista.

Nature is part of the design here: trees peeking in, blue sky bordering ceilings, a horizon of greenery above the bathroom vanity– all of this is the classic environmental design of Henry Hill.

The land

Henry Hill homes celebrate the land, so we expect a generous lot, and here we get one.  On almost an half acre in Berkeley’s Park Hill community, the property offers garden, lawn, views, and privacy.

And if there aren’t quite enough trees, why not walk to Tilden Park,  close enough to call “neighbor.”

The five most expensive zip codes in the Bay Area.

The deal

Park Hill is a residential community in the Berkeley Hills. Homes here come with an HOA, in this case $510, which includes access to and maintenance of common areas in the community.

The 94708 zip code is a popular one, and has been enjoying a 109 percent sale-to-list ratio over the past 30 days of market activity.

Such a ratio — and such a unique listing — lead us to predict this home will sell for over its asking of $995,000.
