This intriguing storybook home is attributed to William Raymond Yelland who made a name for himself designing some of the most flamboyant period revival residences in all of the Bay Area. Perhaps best known among them is Berkeley’s Normandy Village which rivals any of the more theatrical homes built in Southern California between the wars. The home we feature today is unusually organic with rounded free-form rooms that create the distinct impression of handicraft – definitely an artifice worthy of Yelland.
