181 Manzanita, Orinda

Today we feature a charming Orinda ranch that appears to be almost entirely original. The home is a great representation of the brief mid-century infatuation with unfinished adobe or slump bricks. The hand-wrought texture and the natural color of the bricks fit quite well with the aesthetic of the time. This example has never been on the market since it was new and as a result has survived with a minimum of alteration – a rare treat.
