46 El Gavilan, Orinda

Though no attribution is provided in the listing, this Orinda mid-century has all of the hallmarks of Robert Klemmedson’s work. The glass walls with smaller transom windows tucked between the beams above were a trademark feature common to many of his beautiful homes. This one has of course been rather heavily painted so that it now resembles more closely an international style residence than the warm and woodsy Bay Region that it was originally; but even with its textures muted, the thoughtful detailing and considered spaces make it a standout property.
