7 Veteran, Oakland

Click picture for additional photos and complete listing

Today we have another nice Glenview home to share – this one in the storybook style. Veteran Way is a short street with an interesting cluster of homes which were obviously built by the same developer. It is not clear whether they were built by Dixon and Hillen who were responsible for most of the storybook tracts in the East Bay or by JW Scammell who built the interesting Spanish Colonial homes a couple of blocks away on Elston, but either way the result is impressive.

This particular home has a façade dominated by a great turret staircase and clinker brick chimney. Inside, the wrought iron and rough-hewn wood elements are used pretty sparingly, but all of the ceiling framing in the public rooms is left exposed, giving lie to the many applied box beams out there aspiring to create the same rustic appearance.
