Today we feature another large Rockridge home – this one a colonial revival foursquare. The home is impressive from the street with the hipped roof, central dormer, cut-away porch, and bay windows that are common on East Bay colonial revivals of this period. But it also has a number of Italianate flourishes like the large frieze and applied brackets under the roof line. Inside, the home is wonderfully preserved, with inlaid floors, built-ins, stained glass, and original dark woodwork that extends even into the bedrooms which is pretty unusual.
