957 Hillside, Albany

This showy hillside mid-century boasts some impressive cantilevers and massive spans thanks to its unusual roof construction which consists of 2x wood members placed side by side on end to create a solid mass. As a result, the spaces created inside are wide open and full of light thanks to the interesting assemblage of windows. No architect is credited in the listing, but the home is clearly the work of a talented designer – a perfect excuse for making the drive up Albany Hill.
