Conceived and built in 1975 by James Lee, an industrial engineer who designed the metal hardware for the Eames chair, this Oakland home is a rare treat. Located in the Piedmont Pines neighborhood, this abode screams Bay Area bohemian, from the slightly slanted hallway to the curving hand-built staircase, which give this house a far-out vibe.
Featuring two bedrooms, one bathroom, and 1,633 square feet, 6555 Longwalk’s most prominent interior asset is the wall of floor-to-ceiling windows, which are slightly angled to allow maximum viewing of the arboreal action outside.
Other highlights include the aforementioned trippy hallway, vaulted ceilings, wraparound deck, intense woodwork, original blueprints, and a workshop/artist’s studio.
Also of note, according to the listing, this home “currently needs some attention, per inspection reports.”
Asking is $599,000.
