CraftmanshipDIGGS: I have always loved the graceful curve of the front porch and the elegant picture window. This is a home that would be comfortable in the hills of Berkeley or in Sausalito overlooking the SF Bay. Sumptuous mahogany woodwork was meticulously restored- the doors, windows and built-ins are stunning examples of 1920’s craftsmanship. Later in this home’s life an expanding family added a massive family room and half bath to the back. Large enough for a ginormous TV as well as a pool table, this is the ultimate rec. room. Crafters will swoon over two huge closets outfitted as a craft station and sewing station. A series of french doors leads to the generous patio that overlooks a shaded, verdant, park. Fiber and paper arts are not the only crafts supported in this home. The garage is a gearhead and woodshop enthusiasts dream come true. A long, wide driveway leads to a double car garage with workshop and storage space in the back. A small storage building off to the side was once a master quilter’s domain. There is electricity, but no water to this little building. There is much left to be done in this special home, but much that can not be replicated anywhere else.
