2837 East Overlook (1979, 1986)

Built in 1929 by Albert and Annette Bramson, this house was designed by Mrs. Bramson herself and executed with the help of a carpenter in an "improvisational" style that suggests both the Sullivan-Wright Prairie School of residential architecture and the work of Greene and Greene, California architects of the early 1900s. Its site and natural surroundings obviously inspired the design whose exterior features regular courses of field stone and a random-design picket railing on one of the decks echoed in the original fencing.


Following a fire in 1961, the interior was extensively remodeled by Hart and Weiss and decorated by Algesa O'Sickey in keeping with the flavor of the exterior.
