Robert Ratcliff, like his father before him, was a prolific designer; so it is not uncommon to see a number of his thoughtful mid-century homes come on the market in any given year. Even so, it has been some time since we have encountered one in Oakland, so we are very pleased to have the opportunity to share this Hillcrest Estates example. This particular home is full of Ratcliff’s characteristic juxtapositions of wood and masonry and glass, but the masonry is more dominant here than is often the case. It gives the home a particularly solid and almost institutional feeling that is quite unexpected.
