The home was the work of noted Berkeley architect Clinton Day, who in 1896 drew up plans for the “City of Paris” department store. His rotunda with the stained-glass ship scene canopy is still admired today by visitors and diners of The Rotunda restaurant at Nieman Marcus.

The 7,297-square-foot home has its own wow factor: Upon entry, a two-story circular foyer leads to an expansive living room and dining room, which both open to the back terrace and lush gardens.
