Our featured home today is a substantial San Leandro Spanish colonial revival on an oversized lot. The home was designed by Arthur Janssen just one year after he designed the bulkhead building for Pier 5 in San Francisco. He was not licensed as an architect at the time, but he would go on to receive his license in 1928 after he began working in the office of Charles McCall. Janssen is not particularly well known in the East Bay today because he relocated to Menlo Park to start his own practice shortly before World War II. His firm Janssen, Daseking, and Keller would go on to build a number of high profile projects on the Peninsula in the decades following the war.
