Home of the Week: A Spacious Log Cabin

Living RoomThis spacious, custom-built Oakland area home for sale is constructed of Douglas fir logs and reclaimed redwood trim using artisan craftsmanship inside and out. Hard-to-miss details include soaring, open-beam ceilings, a heavy timber staircase with a custom, hand-wrought iron handrail, and a hand-carved totem. The wheelchair-accessible design is also notable for its intelligent use of space.

Our Home of the Week has another distinction in addition to its unique design. The current owner, while under contract with Columbia Records, pioneered a technique of stereo acoustic guitar recording that is now used by many recording engineers. The home’s professional recording studio has turned out tracks  for several Bay Area musicians and was visited by the likes of Michael Jackson and George Michael.

The home is located in the unincorporated community of Canyon, where it’s just a short trip to Oakland’s Montclair Village and Moraga.
