Update: Well, that was fast. After landing on the market a couple of weeks ago, the Stanley Saitowitz stunner in the East Bay sold over asking for a cool $2,100,000.
Built in 1992, this Upper Rockridge home, replete with corrugated steel siding in contrasting patterns, is, in part, a response to the Oakland firestorm of 1991. (The previous home was destroyed in the fatal blaze.)
It’s was also designed by Stanley Saitowitz, one of the Bay Area’s few starchitects.
Featuring three bedrooms, two and a half bathrooms, and 2,354 square feet, 6131 Ocean View Drive comes with an edgy look care of the steel siding soften by curvilinear design both inside and out. Materials like steel-bar joists, plywood ceilings, stainless steel countertops, and Terrazzo floors are used here to whimsical effect.
And in keeping with the neighborhood’s titular theme, the yard also features an outcrop of rock.
This is the first time the home has landed on the market since it was built.
Asking is $1,998,000.
