Leonard C. Hammond House in San Francisco, California

William Knowles* shoehorned this hillside home, built around 1908, on a very long and narrow wedge of land.  The challenging site was less than twenty feet deep at the top, and two feet at the bottom.  The Shingle Style house cascades down the hill for four levels.  The general design takes its cue more from English Arts and Crafts models than American ones.  Clad in masonry or half-timbered stucco, it could easily pass for an English Tudor Revival.  But even so, the Arts and Crafts influence would still be apparent in the home's general lack of pretension, and its playful, yet functional, arrangement of windows.  Photo taken in 1999 by Howard J. Partridge.
