5909 Ocean View, Oakland

This oversized Rockridge craftsman is full of interesting details. From the front we are presented with a considerable gable supported on massive stepped brackets and filled symmetrically with divided light windows around a sizable chimney. The entrance is tucked around the side out of site but its location is announced by a smaller gabled porch that wraps around the corner of the building. The interior of the house is filled with original custom wood work. The picture rail in particular is much more substantial than is found in most homes of this period, creating a heavy band around the tops of the rooms.
