107 Bates, Orinda

Click on picture for additional photos and complete listing

Today we feature an intriguing Orinda ranch in virtually untouched original condition. The home was designed by Robert Klemmedson and while its basic form is fairly typical, the detailing is decidedly Asian. Japanese architecture in particular was very influential on the West Coast after World War II and this home borrows a great deal from our neighbors to the West. So too do the impressive gardens which were the work of Henry Matsutani, the highly regarded designer of the restored Japanese Tea Garden in Golden Gate Park.
