Welcome to 6025 Rockridge Boulevard.
This majestic Prairie-Style Craftsman was built in 1910 just 6 doors through the iconic White Renaissance Gates on Broadway. The property, which has been in the same family since 1971, is thought to be the first home built on this prominent block with the idea of attracting San Francisco families displaced by the 1906 earthquake and fire. Pasadena-based architect G. Lawrence Stimson went on to build a replica of this design for his own family in Pasadena.
The grand proportions of the living spaces are at once welcoming and also suitable to today's taste for open plan living. Long sightlines through the living and dining rooms allow for a sense of cohesion and for light to move from room to room. Several extra spaces, such as the intimate music parlor, the charming upstairs office and reading rooms, a well lit breakfast nook, and downstairs au pair quarters, make this a very gracious and well appointed home.
A short distance from the bustling Rockridge commercial district known for its lively shopping and dining scene, Rockridge BART station and Highway 24 for commuting to San Francisco and beyond.
