2842 Butters, Oakland

The first pueblo revival structures were reportedly designed by AC Schweinfurth and built in Southern California. The style would go on to become the predominant form of architecture in some parts of New Mexico and Arizona but it would never really catch on in Northern California. It is therefore a bit of a treat to see this well preserved example just off Joaquin Miller in Oakland. The home is pretty restrained as far as pueblo revivals go. There are no beams poking through the façade or rounded corners, but it does feature the characteristic boxy construction and minimal exterior decoration. Inside, it is similarly spare with narrow moldings and widely spaced box beams.
