Our featured home today is an early and exquisite shingle style craftsman by prolific local designer John Hudson Thomas. Thomas is perhaps best known for his later Secessionist structures but he began his career, like many of his contemporaries, working in the First Bay tradition. Even then in his earliest designs, Thomas’ fondness for heavy timbers and exaggerated details is already apparent. Here the public spaces are lavishly wooded with board and batten, boxed beams, built-ins, and a beautiful inglenook. It is an impressive showing from a burgeoning East Bay talent.
