Designed and built by Charles and Matt Cebulla in the aftermath of the Oakland Fire, this home capitalizes on an awkwardly sloping peninsular site using a favorite Spanish Revival device:  the turret, whose powerful circular form both visually anchors the house and helps it turn the corner smoothly.  Patios enclosed by site walls are ingeniously integrated into the sloping hillside at various levels, while details such as the peaked turret roof and arcaded chimney cap provide a whimsical finishing touch.  The house was completed in 1996.
