188 & 192 Crestview, Orinda

Today we have a pair of neighboring Orinda mid-century homes to share. Both are compelling structures in their own right, but together they are a beautiful representation of the type of creative custom homebuilding that Orinda became known for in the middle of the last century. Architects from all over the Bay Area were drawn to the area to take advantage of the many possibilities afforded by the large wooded lots in close proximity to the urban centers. Richard Neutra and Charles Moore are represented; even Frank Lloyd Wright made his mark there, where the only home he designed for an East Bay site is still located today.
