Our featured home today comes with a bit of a story. The home was originally built in 1963 by Stanley Hiller and it was the first home constructed in Hiller Highlands. Hiller was a precocious talent who started attending UC Berkeley when he was 15 and who had a contract to build helicopters for the military by the time he was 17.
The house unfortunately burned in the Oakland Hills fire, but unlike most of its neighbors it was rebuilt from the original 1963 plans. It therefore has a somewhat mixed aesthetic. It has the shape and flow of a mid-century home, but the detailing and finishes are contemporary.
