We are always pleased to see a Karl Kolbeck home come on the market. They are without fail thoughtful and carefully detailed. This particular example from the late 50s already demonstrates a number of the trademarks of his later work including a move away from woodsy Bay Region materials coupled with massive overhangs and a raised roof over the living area. It demonstrates very clearly Kolbeck’s distinctive voice and willingness to experiment with the prevailing idioms of the period.
