There is no mention of it in the listing, but according to at least one reliable source, this lovely shingled craftsman is the work of Julia Morgan. It is without doubt a highly symmetrical and very finely detailed home, so the attribution seems quite plausible. The grand interiors boast an abundance of woodwork, generous rooms, and an extremely charming inglenook. It is a beautiful example of First Bay Region architecture by a very talented local designer.
