This glass-walled mid century beauty was built by prominent Bay Area architect Bob Steiner in 1958 and has been put on the market for the first time in 58 years by the original owners. Located between Silicon Valley and San Francisco in the town of Hillsborough, the 250 square-metre, single-story, flat-top features two bedrooms, two bathrooms, parquet floors, wood panelling, and extensive full-height glazing.
The home perches on a creek-side setting, with its entire back wall of floor-to-ceiling windows opening onto a stilted deck and greenery beyond it, which provides the open-plan living, dining, and family rooms a gorgeous view. The spacious bedrooms also have large windows, and carpeted floors bestow cosiness.
Though the residence appears to have been carefully maintained, the home boasts contemporary finishes such as white-washed walls and steel kitchen appliances, but many period details remain including the kitchen cabinetry and mirrored bathroom storage. The property, located at 739 El Cerrito Avenue, comes with a pool and asks $2,995,000 — via Curbed
