Elegant, well designed, mid century contemporary, perfectly set into a stunning site to take full advantage of the commanding S.F.Bay views. It has incredible indoor/outdoor quality, with many courts, decks and patios. Full of interesting details, radiant heat, huge closets, tons of storage and mostly 1 level living – an exceptional property! Designed by John Hans Ostwald , who was one of the first post war generation of architects to exp[lore the possibilities of what became known as the Bay Area Style, an eclectic approach to residential design. He designed it for the original owner, who lived here until they died. This house reflects this Bay Area style in the direct use of exposed natural materials, such as brick, slate and wood, in the Japanese feeling of post and lintel timber construction and the use of redwood as a structural and organic material, as seen in ranches and barns. He loved the outdoors, was a member of the Sierra Club and active in conservation projects. He worked very closely with the contractors and many details were worked out during the construction. There are magnificent views from almost every room.
