Loading your dream Claremont home...
Resting on a rare double lot on a tree-lined cul-de-sac in Berkeley’s coveted Claremont neighborhood, 2845 Garber - once known as the Lloyd House, designed by prominent architects Williams & Wastell* - is a gorgeous 1924 Spanish Revival with finishes honoring the finest artistry of the Art Deco period. Grand in scale, this magnificent home enjoys 4608 square feet of living space with 6+ bedrooms (3 en suite) and 5 baths, which includes a spacious separate 2-bedroom apartment that can be further separated into a full-service 1BD/1BA apartment and 1BD/1BA guest suite. Imbued with sophisticated elegance, the home features soaring ceilings with exposed beams, burnished hardwood floors, multipaned glass French doors, and charming Juliet balconies. The home is ideal for entertaining with its gracious sunken living room, paneled library with artisanal corner fireplace, formal dining room, fabulous chef’s kitchen, and cheerful sun porch.
Surrounded by magical gardens of crimson bougainvillea, blooming camellia trees, splendid beds of roses, and privacy hedges of fragrant jasmine, the home has the feel of a private manse - a true escape from the rest of the world. Beneath a towering redwood, the enormous back garden is an enchanting private park where flagstone paths meander through an abundance of flowers, shrubs, and trees, with multiple seating areas for elegant garden parties or sophisticated evening entertaining.
This stunning home is tucked away in Berkeley’s Claremont neighborhood considered by many to be the pinnacle of upscale California living. Nestled in gentle hills just 12 miles from San Francisco and moments from the cherished Monkey Island park and vibrant College Avenue, this historic enclave is characterized by stately homes, tree-lined streets and hidden pathways. Near the renowned Claremont Club & Spa and UC Berkeley with its cultural arts center and botanical gardens, the home is also minutes from Claremont Canyon Regional Preserve and Tilden Regional Park.

The much sought-after neighborhood of Elmwood has a rich architectural history. Early 20th-century houses, estates, and some of the more notable homes designed by prominent turn-of-the-century Bay Area architect Julia Morgan can be found in this neighborhood.
The local shopping district centered on the intersection of College and Ashby avenues is a bustling hive of activity, featuring an array of gourmet eateries, boutique shops, cafes, and restaurants. Residents of Elmwood also enjoy an easy walk to public transportation, a library, and parks. For an only-in-Elmwood, experience, visit Mrs. Dalloway's, a shop that combines a bookstore and garden supplies, or Rialto Cinemas Elmwood, a Berkeley city landmark that houses a three-screen cinema.
In terms of hyperlocal culture, Julia Morgan Theatre offers camps and classes as well as performances of music, dance, and theater throughout the year.
