Perched on the crest of the Berkeley Hills, 800 Woodmont Ave is a mid-century modern stunner! This 3-bedroom (4 per tax records), 2.5 baths, 2298 SqFt home sits on an expansive, park-like 0.68 acres (all per tax records). A spacious living room features a marble fireplace, refinished oak floors and direct access to an outdoor patio. The adjacent dining room with an oversized built-in china cabinet overlooks a Japanese garden. An inviting family room offers plenty of storage, marmoleum floors, built-in planters and opens up to the pool terrace. Each room in the living area has floor to ceiling windows to bring the beautiful greenery and natural light into your living space! The original kitchen has been fully updated with Caesar stone countertops, porcelain tile backsplash and stainless-steel appliances with an extra wide gas stove.

The master suite with refinished oak floors offers 2 built-in closets and has stunning views of the Berkeley woods to the north. The study off the master bedroom could be converted to even more closet space! The adjacent bathroom with shower opens up to the pool. Each additional bedroom has been newly carpeted.

The large corridor with built-in wooden shelves features a linen closet with laundry shoot and stairs leading to the garage and laundry room. The basement has been carefully built out with a separate entrance and is ready to be fully converted to an additional living space.

Situated on an oversized 29,452 SqFt lot (per tax records), enjoy the natural beauty of the Berkeley Hills from the side deck, the pool patio or the lovely gazebo. Pick your fresh fruit from one of the many mature trees or tend your rustic vegetable garden. Admire the original oak tree that hugs the side deck while you dine al fresco, taking in the sights and sounds of nature.

Additional features include a pool, two car garage plus ample parking at the top of the driveway.

This home is located just steps away from the hiking and biking trails of Tilden Park and is only 1 mile from Solano Avenue with its many cafes, restaurants and shops.


The Plainfield family bought the lot in 1960 and hired mid-century modern architect Mario Corbett to design a family friendly, light-filled home. Mario Corbett, a mastermind of the natural house, designed 800 Woodmont in a unique keyhole shape with entertaining and outdoor living in mind. The house has a harmonious flow with the surrounding nature and makes a perfect oasis, secluded, and yet, only minutes away from Berkeley’s best dining and shopping.

This is your chance to own a piece of Berkeley history!
