"A unique and beautifully intricate brick construction dissimilar to any other structure on Claremont, clearly built with extreme skill and preserved with care."
- Jerri Holan, FAIA, nationally-recognized architect and Berkeley Architectural Heritage Association member
Nestled into a hillside near the historic Claremont Hotel and Spa, 7361-7363 Claremont Avenue represent the romance and architecture of Berkeley in the early 1900s, yet with modern upgrades and amenities. Once part of the large land ownership of the Holabird Estate, the estate boasts unique and exceptional details including keystone arches, fireplace bricks with century old horseshoes and hidden hearth seating, grand staircases and more. In addition, a small artistic wall of Prohibition bottles can be viewed in the rear garden, a tribute to the local lore that this was once the site of Prohibition bootlegging operations. With sweeping views from almost every window, each unit has access to sundecks, balconies and a private rear garden.
7361-7363 Claremont is zoned for nine legal units, each metered separately. 7361 Claremont features a 5-plex currently with 100% occupancy, an entitled, permitted 6th unit in the right garage bay, and an entitled 7th unit, which is an expansion of the existing shed structure at the top of the property. 7363 Claremont features a quaint, studio cottage (8th unit) with floor-to-ceiling windows connecting you to nature. The 9th unit is an entitled ADU below the current cottage.
Tucked behind the Claremont Hotel and Spa and walkable to Elmwood, Rockridge, and UC Berkeley, the secluded canyon property is just moments from the lush hiking trails of protected and serene Garber Park. Yet the cafes, stores and amenities of the Claremont District and Elmwood are around the corner, as well as access to the 13/24 freeways and AC Transit 80 to BART for commuters.
