This charming Second Bay Region residence is an extremely early piece of modernist design by Winfield Scott Wellington whose trademark spare interiors of redwood and simple exteriors never fail to impress. There was another equally compelling Wellington home a on the market a few years ago that was located on Keeler. That home was built ten years after this one but the two share a surprising number of common attributes despite the amount of time that separates them. It is a great testament to the prescience and staying power of Wellington’s designs that they remained consistent and relevant over such an extended period.
