200 Panoramic Way, also known as “Panoramic Sky,” is a masterfully designed 5 bedroom, 5 bathroom retreat offering space, form and function. This uniquely magnificent property is a rare offering designed by Daniel Liebermann. A student and protege of Frank Lloyd Wright, Liebermann can be referred to as one of the original Bay Area “starchitects” who brought a unique architectural sense to Northern California’s Mid-century modern movement. Although he lived quite simply, his following has become international with his most diehard fans being here in the Bay Area. Properties designed by Liebermann speak to lovers of architecture far and wide with their wild yet perfectly utilitarian sensibilities. His designs combine Dutch roots with Lloyd Wright’s signature democratic yet grand aesthetic to create a unique living experience.
Among the residences Liebermann designed, 200 Panoramic Way represents the epitome of his ideas in form and function while commanding incredible Bay Area views on over an acre of Northern California native landscaping. This grand home perched in the Berkeley Hills offers a beautiful tutorial on one of Northern California’s legendary architects.
Soaring walls of glass and exposed natural elements greet you as you enter this stunning property. Natural stone tile and exposed redwood beams flank the foyer, setting the stage for a dramatic staircase and custom lighting. The signature walls of glass windows bring the outdoors in, creating a seamless environment between the viewer and the view. The public spaces offer sweeping views of Berkeley, San Francisco, Marin, and beyond.
The main house offers 5 spacious bedrooms and 5 bathrooms, and included in this hidden retreat are 2 outbuildings: a studio and a 1 bedroom, 1 bathroom building. There is a 3-car garage for parking and over 1.4 acres of winding native landscaping (per owner); this is truly a unique and wonderful compound.

Perched above the city and offering some of the most sweeping panoramic views in the entire Bay Area, the quiet, residential North Berkeley Hills neighborhood offers peace and solitude not far from the hustle and bustle of the city’s more urban areas.
Homes in the neighborhood are built in a variety of styles and feature manicured lawns and lushly landscape gardens. Some homes are hidden from the road by large trees, while others offer views of the San Francisco and Oakland skylines, the Golden Gate Bridge, Alcatraz Island, and Mount Tamalpais. North Berkeley Hills backs up against Tilden Regional Park, which offers numerous opportunities for outdoor recreation all year long.
Some residents in the southern part of North Berkeley Hills are within walking distance from the thriving retail district on Solano Avenue, though those who live at higher elevations will likely need to drive to most places. Alameda-Contra Costa Transit District bus lines that serve the neighborhood drop residents at the Downtown Berkeley BART station for a quick commute to downtown San Francisco.
