101 Franciscan, Kensington

Today we feature an intriguing late period revival home attributed to Roland Stringham that was originally part of the Donald Ross estate (See also 97 Franciscan). Stringham built a very successful career in the 20s and 30s designing large two story homes for the well to do residents of Berkeley. This example is unusual not only because it is all on one level, but it also appears to have had a significant living room addition or remodel at some time during the 1950s making for a somewhat unorthodox floor plan which incorporates an interesting combination of styles.
