Today we feature a sprawling Crocker Highlands Tudor by Miller and Warnecke. Chester Miller and Carl Warnecke had a very successful architectural practice for much of the first half of the last century. They were responsible for a number of important civic and commercial buildings in Oakland including the main branch of the public library and the Malonga Casquelourd Arts Center (originally the Women’s City Club), but they are best remembered for their impressive period revival residences.

The home we visit today is sited at the junction of Ardmore and Ashmount, and it takes full advantage of its corner location by making the dining room a peninsula that juts out from the rest of the house. The exterior boasts plenty of half-timbering as well as a small turret that contains the breakfast room. Inside, the home features Miller and Warnecke’s typical narrow moldings and showy living and dining spaces.
