About 850 Mendocino Ave

Presenting 850 Mendocino Avenue, a grande dame 1921 Berkeley Craftsman with provenance and history. The one-time residence of famed photorealist painter Robert Bechtle, 850 Mendocino’s hallowed halls, original wood details fitting of its architecture, and exceptional location stand out from the crowd. The home’s main level features a gracious foyer that dramatically spills into the sunny living room with fireplace and bay-facing windows. Adjacent, the dining room houses both french doors with an ideal indoor-outdoor flow onto the west deck, and the path to the charming kitchen. An office and half bathroom complete the first level. Four large bedrooms are upstairs - each with exceptional views of the Golden Gate Bridge, the Bay Bridge, the Berkeley hills or the verdant neighborhood. Robert Bechtle built the backyard studio in the 1970’s. This sun-filled space with a tremendous history - this was the birthplace of his oeuvre. Imagine a future in-law or ADU here nestled among the romantic garden. Set on one of Berkeley’s favorite streets, in coveted Thousand Oaks, and on Indian Rock Path…the location, and this opportunity, could not be better. Open Sun, June 16th, 2 t0 4 pm.
