Description

The Jenkyns House, 1960. Josef Van der Kar, AIA, Architect. Like Van der Kar’s iconic Wohlstetter House, the residence is lifted from the street and a slanted roofline creates a dramatic soaring effect. Walls of glass and expansive decks on both living levels capture sweeping reservoir views. Exposed posts + beams, brick fireplaces, and floating staircases punctuate the classic mid-century design. Entry level carport & garden patio with fireplace. Main level living, dining, kitchen and 2 bedrooms with shared bath. Upper level studio/office and master bedroom & bath. Distinctive, classic California architecture.
