46 Melvin, Oakland

Click picture for additional photos and complete listing

This showy Oakland mid-century is one of several round homes with folded plate roofs that were built in the East Bay during the 1960s by Leon Meyer. Meyer was perhaps the biggest proponent of round homes in Northern California. In fact, he lived in a home in Montclair with the same plan as this one for many years. This particular example on Melvin is especially well preserved with loads of intriguing curves and almost all of the original interior woodwork intact.
