After the 1923 Berkeley Fire, Maybeck and his wife Annie – one of the founders of Berkeley’s influential Hillside Club – built two small cottages on the site of their ruined home. In 1933 Maybeck built this more substantial house that epitomizes his domestic vision and artistic achievement. The Maybecks lived here until their deaths. Annie died in 1956, Bernard one year later.
