350 63rd, Oakland

It’s a little hard to tell from the picture, but behind the
large front porch and trellis (which are obviously relatively recent additions),
is a very nice example of an East Bay high-peaked colonial revival. This one is
in great shape inside and has a particularly unusual curved stained glass
window in the living room. Though these homes frequently have a high leaded
glass window in this location, I can’t say that I have ever seen this exact
detail on another house.

Picture and plate rails and board and batten wainscoting and
paneling all appear to be intact and with their original dark finish in the
public rooms. The kitchen even retains some vestiges of its period casework. Upstairs,
the bedrooms still feature most of their original moldings, and even the
sleeping porch has been preserved which is a pretty nice bonus.
