67 King, Piedmont

As a welcome respite from the slow week before Labor Day, we have a massive Piedmont Spanish colonial designed by Clarence Tantau to share. Tantau was a San Francisco architect with a thriving residential practice specializing in Spanish style homes. This one is particularly lavish with nearly 10,000 SF of living space filled with all of the over the top embellishments that one might imagine. Many of the interior spaces have been altered in recent years, but even so, the home retains a good deal of period flavor for those looking for a healthy dose of Depression era opulence. It without a doubt rivals any of Tantau’s largest commissions anywhere else in the Bay Area.
