5999 Grizzly Peak, Oakland

This exceptional Third Bay Region residence was designed by none other than Joseph Esherick who was responsible for the first homes at Sea Ranch and who is probably (along with MLTW) the designer most often associated with the movement. Now looking for only its third owner, the house is a particularly fine example of his work. It was originally a two bed, two bath home, but it was designed to expand below as the owner’s family grew, which it apparently did. The massive concrete columns that support the fireplaces are a particularly interesting addition to a structure that is otherwise almost completely wood.
