According to the Berkeley Architectural Heritage Association (BAHA) tour of "The Knoll" 2845 Garber Street was designed by architects Williams and Westell in 1924 for Rosemary Dobbins Lloyd, a prominent Berkeley philanthropist. This elegant Spanish style mansion is located near the height of the Garber Street Hill (otherwise known as "The Knoll"), in the heart of Berkeley's famed Claremont neighborhood.

The large living room is garced by original chandeliers of iron and parchment, and by magnificent oak-leaf and irons in the massive and stylish fireplace. Beyond the living room is the library with mahognay paneling and box beam ceiling. A one-of-a-kind curved corner fireplace is wrapped by a painted mural of California native flora and fauna and a Latin inscription "Sit Pons Firma" - May the Bridge Be Strong.
