One of Berkeley's great Arts & Crafts Style houses, and in impeccable original condition, the Maybeck Studio will be open on Sunday. It's a rare opportunity to see one of Bernard Maybeck's most interesting houses.

Sometimes called the Maybeck Studio, or the Kennedy-Nixon House, this acoustically perfect space was built by the Nixon family as a live-in studio for Alma Kennedy, their daughter's piano teacher, and later joined to the Nixon's earlier Maybeck house next door by a bridge. The original house was built in 1914, it all burned down in 1923 and was immediately rebuilt under Maybeck's supervision.
