DESCRIPTION:

Designed in 1947 by San Francisco architect F. McCarthy to house the offices of local builder R. Silverberg, this midcentury beauty was later transformed into a 3 bedroom, 2 bath home in the Dogtown neighborhood of West Oakland. Many original features maintain the home’s mid-century roots: horizontal wood siding on the exterior; high vaulted ceilings enhanced by clerestory windows which bathe each room in diffused light; cork floors in all 3 bedrooms; and a vertical brick wall which provide a counterpoint to the warm wood construction of the interiors.

The house is only one extraordinary feature of this dazzling compound. On the opposite end of the large 5325 sf lot sits a 1300+ sf second building with 4 large rollup doors, concrete floors and barn wood walls. The sky’s the limit on your use of this undivided space. It has been a woodworking studio, event space, home office, art studio, and even a workshop for the restoration of vintage Formula 1 racing cars.

Between the house and workshop buildings lies a large magical open air patio complete with fig trees, bougainvillea , palms and even an olive tree. Perfect for intimate family barbeques, or a party for 100. The last owners even raised chickens here. Use your creativity to explore everything and anything that this extraordinary private oasis could become if it were yours.
