Today we feature a beautifully restored Dutch colonial shingle style designed by Julia Morgan. The home was commissioned for UC professor of zoology Charles Kofoid and his wife Carrie in 1905. Morgan did not use the gambrel roof in her designs very frequently but here she incorporates it with great aplomb to create some particularly charming spaces in the eaves. The home is further elevated by the custom woodwork built by Charles’ father which has been carefully preserved over all these years and remains a testament to his very personal contribution to the family home.
