Designed by Carr Jones and crafted in 1932 using bricks reclaimed during the dismantling of St. Mary's College in downtown Oakland, this artful two-bedroom home boasts a timeless design and verdant views.

A beamed cathedral ceiling, curved hallways, hand-hewn wooden doors with iron hardware and abundant balconies make this a definitive example of Jones' Storybook style. Fireplaces can be found in the living room, dining room and both bedrooms, and the property includes a detached guest house built by Jones in 1954 with midcentury elements.
