Re: For sale: MCM by architect Roger Lee - Berkeley Hills, CA

More views in the real estate ad show how there is a similar roof on the ground floor and the second floor...part of the house is one-story and part is two-story.

Small point, but when I visited this house c. 1963, the ceilings and soffits were unpainted sand float plaster. They has a texture and color far superior to what we see today.

Re: Sally Woodbridge obituary (1930-2019)

You may be thinking of "Stairway Walks in San Francisco" by Adah Bakalinsky. Or "Urban Trails: SF" by Alex Kenin; or "Walking SF" by Tom Downs. There are others also. Adah Bakalinksy's book is the best know, having been around in one version or another for decades.

Unless the tax laws there are different than in California, in order to be tax exempt the building has to be used for a tax exempt purpose. Vacant and on the market is not such a purpose, and would therefore be taxed. I suppose it is possible to find a temporary tax exempt purpose while the house is...
