Believe it or not, we have another great Roger Lee mid-century to share today – this one in El Cerrito. Lee was a prolific designer so it is not unusual to see a few of his homes hit the market in any given year. This is the fourth we have seen in the East Bay this summer, and I know of at least one other in Marin this year – so a good year for fans of Lee’s particular brand of Bay Region modernism.
This particular home is not so showy from the outside as some of the others we have seen this year, but inside it is full of great Lee details. There is the trademark vertical paneling, the large mass of masonry at the fireplace and the exposed roof structure. And of course ample glazing which allows for some nice peaks of the bay views that the El Cerrito hills are known for.
