80 Selkirk, Oakland

Today we feature an interesting Redwood Heights home with some particularly unusual hybrid detailing. At first glance, the home is decidedly prairie with its prominent masonry chimney and horizontal massing with windows tucked up high under the eaves. Upon approaching the entrance, however, one is struck by the entrance portico which looks remarkably postmodern and the art deco door hardware. Inside, the details are mostly deco with a great curved built-in sideboard and period bathroom.
