The Marston Studio, built as a dance and theatrical studio, and designed by Eldridge Theodore "Ted" Spencer is one of the most picturesque cottages in Berkeley. Its exquisite, dramatic architecture has been called "Elizabethan", but it feels both medieval and California modern with its wall of intricately leaded glass windows overlooking the formal, enclosed garden/patio. The great room's vaulted beams, loft for musicians and half-timbered plaster and wood ceiling is truly dramatic. Over the entrance to the dining room (a slightly raised "stage" crying for thespians) is a charming, stenciled gable end, lovingly created by Jennette Spencer. The bedroom features...

a raised fireplace, window seat framed by leaded glass windows, and other nooks and crannies. An elegant period bathroom was done in black, green and white tile. These fine details and craftsmanship mark this as a very special project, both in style and execution, for the Marston family.
