Property Description


This wonderful architect-designed home is one of several built in the immediate vicinity by John Hudson Thomas. It has a level-in, spacious entry, living room and dining room with mahogany beams, wainscoting and built-ins, a breakfast room and sunny kitchen, and a large deck facing the bay view. The kitchen was remodeled a few years back by well-known local architect Adolph Rosekrans, a descendant of the San Francisco Spreckels family. A guest bedroom and half bath are on on the main floor, and upstairs are five bedrooms, one of which is an ideal office with a view, and three baths. The lower level has a large family room, one bath, and in-law potential, with level-out access to the lower patio and decks. There is an attached garage with interior access. The detached garage was converted to a large art studio (with heat and plumbing), also by Adolph Rosekrans, who left the original turntable and mechanism for rotating cars. This studio was home to the works of the owner Sonya Rapoport, a notable oil painter.
Within easy walking distance of Claremont and Rockridge shops, cafés and BART, it is in a cul-de-sac off one of many lovely Berkeley pathways, this one named “The Foot Way,” which takes you to the bottom of The Uplands, where Star Grocery and other shops can be found. There is also a San Francisco transit bus line at this location.
The home has been in the same family since 1955, when UC Professor Emeritus of Chemistry, Henry “Rap” Rapoport bought it for his family. It was built at the same time as the home just to the right, also by John Hudson Thomas, for two sisters who wanted to live side by side.

Sun 10/8 from 2-5PM & 10/15 from 2-4:30PM

About Me


Anne is a Bay Area native. She attended elementary and high school in San Francisco, then moved to the East Bay in 1970. She promptly fell in love with the very different landscape of the East Bay. She appreciated the tree-lined streets, seasonal colors, greater open space, and that there was still an urban cultural environment with a lot to connect to. After graduating from U.C. Berkeley, Anne moved to the East Coast for five years, beginning her real estate career in a small town outside Philadelphia, PA. Missing her family and ties to the Bay Area, Anne returned, affiliated with a Berkeley real estate office and met her future husband and business partner, broker Tim Cannon.

Tim is a Berkeley native and began his real estate career in 1978 after attending Berkeley public schools, Merritt College, and then UC Berkeley, majoring in Sociology. Tim has worked in both large and small offices, has managed and trained agents, and brings a wealth of experience to his clients. He earned his Broker’s license in 1984 and has over 30 years of experience in East Bay Real Estate. Anne and Tim have three grown children, all in their mid 20’s now. They enjoy their community and try to promote local business support whenever possible. They have many causes dear to them, and it is their custom, upon close of escrow of all of their listings, to make a donation to a charity in the name of the client.

Recognizing that buying or selling a home can be a stressful time for anyone, we personally handle the details or our transactions. When you contract with Anne and Tim, you contract for personal service.

We strive to make your real estate experience a positive one.
