New Homes in the Classic East Bay Arts + Crafts Style Debut in Oakland, $1.4MAuthor:Philip Ferrato
Where: 4465 Howe Street, Oakland
Asking: $1.4M and up
What: The first of a collection of ten freestanding homes in the classic Arts + Crafts Style known as the First Bay Tradition, dubbed Oakmont Off Piedmont. Influenced by architects like Maybeck, Polk and Morgan, the 3- and 4-bedroom homes are an eclectic mix of stucco, carpenter detailing and board-and-batten, with the sloping roof and dormers that are practically indigenous to the East Bay. Sited on a sloping lot, no two homes will be alike.
The Team: Developer Tom Anthony of Anthony Associates worked with architectural designer John Newton and interior designer Allison Hatcher to create the collection, with a passion for and attention to detail that shows in every aspect.
What We Love: A beautiful sense of proportion and materials make this the ideal kind of infill construction in dense but eminently walkable neighborhoods.
