Located high atop the Berkeley hills on a quiet and peaceful street not far from Grizzly Peak, and mostly above the fog line, 100 Parnassus is still relatively close and walking/biking distance to UC Berkeley, Lawrence Berkeley Lab, and Tilden Park for those aware and not timid to the relatively steep terrain and sidewalk free streets of the area.

The architect Roger Lee is a native of the East Bay and graduate of Cal Berkeley.  Roger started his career in Hawaii working for the US government as a civil engineer, and later went on to design homes in the Bay Area.  Roger designed and oversaw the construction of over 100 homes, mostly located in the East Bay, and every one of them unique and custom designed for the owner.
