Our featured home today is a beautiful Alameda Colonial revival designed by California architectural pioneer David Farquharson. Farquharson is probably best known today as the designer of South Hall, the oldest remaining building on the UC Berkeley campus, but his impact on the state’s early built landscape was immense. Starting in Sacramento in the 1850s and then moving to San Francisco shortly thereafter he was responsible for some of the most influential early buildings in Northern California. By the time he designed this particular home, he was 80 years old and had enjoyed a long and successful career but he was clearly still well versed in the latest styles of the day as well. It is no wonder that his influence was so great on the generations of architects that would follow in his footsteps – architects who would as a group create what we call today the Bay Region Style.
