This charming Tudor revival was designed by Bernard Maybeck’s brother-in-law and sometimes partner John White. White was a talented architect in his own right if not so ostentatious as his better known compatriot. Here his spaces are carefully crafted and thoughtful if not overwrought.

More recently, the home has been the long time residence of respected Bay Region modernist Henrik Bull who designed a number of residences around the East Bay, but was best known for his mountain cabins that settled effortlessly into wooded sites throughout the Sierras and even the Rockies. His hand too can be seen in some of the rooms within this house making it a very special place indeed.
