241 Sequoia, Walnut Creek

Click picture for additional photos and complete listing

This unusual Walnut Creek postmodern home was the personal residence of Jim Simmons, owner of Tassajara Development. Though much of Tassajara’s more recent residential work has leaned toward a suburban mini-mansion aesthetic, this early home shows a more considered design. The exterior has a massing that is decidedly postmodern with its stacked volumes jutting out at all angles, but some of the detailing owes quite heavily to Frank Lloyd Wright’s Usonian work. Inside, the home is very representative of the period in which it was built, but the spaces are nicely arranged and well finished.

    McMansions, really? Have you ever seen the other work I have done? You may want to review my web site that has a few photos of my work.
