2060 Manzanita, Oakland

Click picture for additional photos and complete listing

Martin Davis built a number of beautiful homes on Manzanita Drive of which this may be the latest. He is best known for his expressive and rustic residences built in the 70s but this home was designed around a decade later. Even so, it still displays vestiges of the heavily wooded interiors that characterized his earlier homes, but the simplified geometry and greater prevalence of drywall is indicative of the changing tastes of the 80s. Davis of course handles both designs with his typical aplomb and manages to integrate his own unique voice into the tastes of both decades.
