Tom Lowe was a prolific Oakland Hills design-builder who built many variations of his trademark design across Montclair and Piedmont Pines through the second half of the last century. The house we feature today is very characteristic of his work in the 60s. Like this home, most of his homes were built on a down-slope lot with the garage at street level and the living spaces below. Typically the entrance would be off to the left or right of the garage, past a single high window and down a covered breezeway. Inside, the homes generally featured a large glazed living room wall or gable often with a fireplace in the corner. The woodwork of course would have originally been unpainted, but all in all this is a fine example of Tom Lowe’s mature mid-century work.
