The Joseph W. Harris House at 2300 Le Conte Avenue is Berkeley’s premier Streamline Moderne residence. Designed by John B. Anthony in 1936, it was designated a City of Berkeley Landmark in 1976.

Harris was the flamboynant haberdasher of “Call Me Joe” fame. His Berkeley Square store was also designed by Anthony.

The Harris House is on the market for the first time in decades, and BAHA members had a private champagne reception and early viewing of it today. We’ve posted some more photos on BAHA’s Facebook page.
