Known as the UC Berkeley dean of architecture, as well as building small homes during the Depression that felt bigger than their actual size, architect William Wurster did design a few heavyweight homes in the Bay Area.
One of his lesser known gems in Santa Cruz, located at 23 Hollins Drive, lands on the market this week. And Wurster fans should take note.
Coming in at five beds, five beds, and approximately 4,9995 square feet, this abode is spacious, to say the least. Highlights include views of the Pacific, four fireplaces (!), and a house that hasn’t been renovated beyond period-era recognition.
That said, it could also benefit from a gentle, loving makeover.
There’s even a detached art/guest house with its own bath and kitchen. Swank, indeed.
Asking is $2,499,000.
