651 Kenwyn, Oakland

This Cleveland Heights mission revival was built by Peter Ness who developed a number of lots across the East Bay in the teens and twenties. It is a pretty loose mission style that is highly symmetrical and features a nice crenellated parapet at the front balcony. I wouldn’t be surprised if the roof was originally clay tile, but the home also does not appear too concerned with strict adherence to the details of a single style, so it may always have been shingled. Inside, the decoration is quite spare but thoughtful with a particularly nice built-in in the dining room that resembles a piece of freestanding furniture.
