It is exceedingly rare to have the opportunity to rent a home designed by one of the Bay Area’s most respected local architects even for a short period, so finding a long term rental like the one we feature today designed by none other than the inimitable Carr Jones is almost unheard of. Jones trained under Bernard Maybeck and he adopted much of Maybeck’s love of material and of craftsmanship as his own. His storybook style homes are immensely creative undertakings hand built by Jones himself and full of his thoughtful and idiosyncratic detailing.
This particular home is one of the two original structures after which Stonecastle Court is named. It has recently undergone a substantial renovation which has managed to update the home’s amenities while still maintaining Jones’ trademark rough-hewn lumber and creative brickwork as well as one of his always impressive glazed gables in the living room. Take advantage of this rare chance to make your home in a residence designed by one of the Bay Area’s best.
