975 Alvarado, Oakland

Our featured home today is built on one of the last lots to burn in the Oakland Hills fire before the wind died and the blaze was finally brought under control. Unlike most of the supersized houses that filled the empty lots in the years that would follow however, this home was rebuilt from the original 1958 plans that John Ostwald made for the site. It is therefore the exceedingly rare confluence of mid-century design and today’s more stringent building codes, the best of both worlds for those looking for vintage style combined with modern amenities and safety standards.
