Designed by architect John Hudson Thomas and modeled on a 13th-century French monastery, the landmark Berkeley castle at 2900 Buena Vista Way has just hit the market for $5 million.
Built in 1929 for the son of James Hume, whose father was the Special Detective for Wells Fargo who brought Black Bart to justice, the 5,750 square foot “Hume Castle” now sits on a reduced ¾-acre parcel.
While a number of monastic rooms could benefit from a bit of updating, in general the property remains in great shape.
And the castle’s terrace still offers a big bay view.
