About

“The Spalding House” at 143 Calvert Court in Oakland is a two-level mid-century modern masterpiece designed by famed Case Study Houses architect Edward Killingsworth and is the only house he built outside of Southern California. This rare 4-bed, 2.5-bath find is nestled in a grove of live oaks, and 76 (yes, 76!) windows invite the outside in. Signature Killingsworth details include 10-foot ceilings, a floor-to-ceiling travertine fireplace, a floating staircase, floor-to-ceiling cabinets, built-in wet bar, built-in sound system, solar panels and a sun-lit front arcade with views. The clean lines continue outdoor with patios, fountains and king palm trees that evoke a glamorous retro Palm Springs lifestyle. Start your day with a coffee and Bay view from the front deck; end your day lounging on the side patios with friends and martinis, enjoying a fire pit and fountains.

 

FIRST IMPRESSIONS

From the street view, the Spalding House is an understated beauty set on a quiet hillside. But as you approach the house, you are transported to another, swankier, century. A structured waterfall greets you in the lower driveway, and stairs bordered by palms, grasses and succulents lead up to the main entry. At the top, the walkway changes to “floating” concrete squares surrounded by water and a reflecting pool. It’s peaceful here, and the long deck looks over the neighborhood and toward the Bay. 

YARD

The current owner undertook an extensive hardscape and landscape renovation in 2012, keeping the mid-century modern ethos and creating clean, beautiful patios with water features and drought-tolerant plantings of grasses, palms, aloe, succulents, bamboo and citrus trees on drip irrigation. The immaculate landscaping also includes high-end artificial grass. This house has two distinct outdoor areas: The front deck and side patios are ideal for entertaining; the back is a soothing sanctuary of live oaks dappled with sunlight.
