Tucked beneath one of the last of the Great American Elms, and moments away from Tilden, this timeless Cape Cod Traditional has a rich and whimsical design history. Featured in a 1939 issue of Sunset Magazine: “It all started as a project of the Berkeley Women’s City Club. Mrs. Arthur C. Mauerhan of Berkeley, an interior decorator, had been commissioned to conduct a course for the Club on home planning and decorating. In planning the course she said, “ Why not build a real house — not just a pencil and paper one? It’ll give us a chance to put our ideas to the test.” And so in 1939, a group of over 300 women scrupulously designed every detail of this home — making their dream home a reality. The carefully constructed flow, fine craftsmanship and meticulous attention to detail, continue to radiate throughout the entire home all these years later. In the same steadfast hands for the past 49 years, the Workman Family has continued the tradition of thoughtful design and whimsical touches.
