Saturday night found Kitty and I up in Berkeley at the house Greg and Robin have recently bought. From Greg’s descriptions we were expecting it to be in need of a lot of work, but I think he exaggerates – the house is amazing.
Built around the turn of the last century, it has genuine and original wood floors throughout, wood panelling and plenty of wood features (such as full height columns in the entry way to what they have made their dining room). Original wood fixings and even Victorian style picture rails are present in every room. The bathroom has an original bath tub. A real wood burning fireplace kept the living room nice and warm even as it started to cool down outside.
Outside at the back is a large split level deck area complete with built in hot tub, and a relatively large garden area full of fruit trees.
Amazing house guys, and a great party – thanks for inviting us!
