Originally built in the early 1900s as a hunting cabin for San Franciscans seeking an escape to the Oakland hills, local modernist architect Wesley Fator transformed 6906 Chambers into a midcentury gem in the 1950s. The house featured clean lines, angles, and materials like glass, metal, and wood.

Turn the calendar to 2014 when a builder further transformed the home into a more contemporary space, one that uses unusual materials (wood firing treatments, new metal work). It lands on the market this week for $988,000.

The realtor notes that the home is completely private. “From the street, all you can see is a fence,” reads the marketing copy. Featuring four beds, two baths, and 1,891 square feet, the house comes with custom steel transom windows, angular roof lines, a floating staircase, three decks, glass fireplace, and arboreal views.

The small geometrical details—circles and angles galore—are delightfully mathematical as they are whimsical.
