The Weise Residence, by architects Nyberg & Bissner(1956). A dramatic cantilevered design gives one the feeling of being in a treehouse,w/floor to ceiling window walls to take full advantage of the canyon view & serene landscape below. Tucked away from the street, mature Japanese gardens give the home incredible privacy. In the living room:5 large glass doors swing out to a spacious wraparound balcony. In the kitchen: an island countertop opens to the dining area/den & its stone fireplace. As in Bissner's own home from 2 years previous,masonry stops short of the ceiling to allow light from large clerestory windows above. Original warm hued translucent stain remains on tongue & groove ceilings running throughout. Currently a 2 bedroom, the jack & jill wall was removed to create a large studio/music room(could be put back w/out difficulty should new owner require 3rd bedroom.)Bathrooms were renovated w/glass mosaic tile & Porcher fixtures. Two yards, one shaded & one sunny, provide more than ample space for entertaining, play,& respite. Well situated in the beautiful San Rafael hills area,w/easy access to 134 & 110 freeways yet peaceful & quiet. Located inside the "preferential zone" for San Rafael Elementary & its highly-regarded Spanish immersion program.
