About 2911 Claremont Ave

The Claremont Firehouse was commissioned in 1914 and built by 1918 by the City of Berkeley to house one firetruck, Engine #7. Notably, designed by Walter H. Ratcliff, Jr. while he was the Berkeley City architect. A three-man dormitory was located on the second floor in order to house firemen. Over the years it has been a cultural center, a flower shop, concert space, an art gallery and always an eclectic hub of commerce style and fun. Held by the same family for over 50 years, this treasure in the Claremont is again available and ready for its next owner’s vision. Showcasing a large high ceiling gallery space and garden on the first level (the original garage for firetruck #7) and a 1 bedroom one bath with kitchen and living space on the upper level. A large roof deck on the upper level enjoys a stunning view of the pergola of the Claremont hotel. Two parking spaces are included in the lot alongside the property and one additional space on the bricks at the front. Zoned commercial/office/residential mixed use opens the possible application of this stunning building to multiple uses. Distinguishing the façade are decoratively carved projecting roof beams and six arched ornate second-story windows.
