Description

History, privacy and the magic of the natural world in the Ellen & Herbert Jenness House. This one-of-a-kind house was owned in the past by many noteworthy artists & academics, including the photographer, Dorothea Lange. Hidden from the street & at the end of a long gravel path, surrounded by majestic Oaks, Liquidambar, and flowering plants of every kind, you are transported to a time when being a few blocks from Campus was akin to living in the countryside. Massive wood beams, built-in details in every corner & a charming country kitchen with vintage stove formerly owned by Alice Waters. A separate apartment sits below and an expansive lot that overlooks the creek beyond. The views of the Campanile and Bay are twinkling reminders of the easily accessible urban vibrancy just a stone's throw away. Numerous upgrades over the years including new foundation & roof. Close to the amenities of Gourmet Village, Codornices, the Rose Garden & Tilden.
