Earl MacDonald is not particularly well-known in the Bay Area because most of his solo career was spent in San Diego, but he lived in Oakland for many years and much of his training took place in the local offices of Arthur Brown. This lavish Piedmont home is one of several impressive residences that he designed in the East Bay before making the move down south and it is a great indication of his immense talent for period revival design. He would continue to practice in Southern California for many years, eventually becoming a noted proponent of modernism, but his early Spanish colonial homes remain some of his most charming designs.
