The epitome of classic Spanish architecture, the home was designed by Richard Requa in 1927. The details of this house clearly convey the character-defining features of both the Spanish Colonial Revival style and Requa’s Southern California sub-style. These features include a low-pitched, red tile roof, stuccoed walls, an asymmetrical facade, and the prominent use of arches. The house also features the elaborated chimney tops, stucco decorative vents, balconies with iron railings, and decorative ironwork associated with the style.

Situated on a 20,010 SF lot with city & bay views the property features private grounds, an interior courtyard with fireplace, a dining porch off the kitchen, lush landscaping, plus a resort style pool/spa entertainment cabana.
