About Randy Elliott

My wife and I bought the house in 1997 just before out second son was born. It was a wreck and we gradually rebuilt it.

Randy Elliott purchased this house in 1997

Why Randy Elliott chose Berkeley Hills

The house is nestled in one of the last urban redwood groves existing. Dorothea Lange lived next door, it's right in what architecture buffs call "Maybeck Country". It's right across the street from the Berkeley Rose Garden, a jewel in itself.

What makes this house unique

Really close to campus. If you have a son or daughter at Cal, this is a chance to bring the holiday to them.

Peaceful house tucked into the redwoods a short walk from everything

  • 5 of 5

It is a beautiful and comfortable house, right next to Codornices Park in the beautiful Berkeley Hills. The location is walking distance to downtown Berkeley, BART, and UC campus. A great spot to relax, explore the Bay Area, or work at UC Berkeley.
