564 El Dorado, Oakland

Today we feature an unusual hybrid residence that blurs the line between Victorian and colonial revival. It is reportedly the work of prolific East Bay architect Leo Nichols who was known to work in a variety styles but rarely to combine them so freely. Here Victorian scale and verticality blend seamlessly with traditional colonial hipped roofs, bays, and dormers. It is a surprisingly successful amalgamation of turn of the century styles.
