The Ed and Shirley Retzler Residence, 1973



First Offering. Perhaps better known on the Peninsula as one of the celebrated homes created by local craftsman/contractor Robert Halderman, the Retzler residence deigned by William Abbott successfully blends modern and California coastal vernacular reminiscent of sea ranch. A creative site specific design maximizes ocean and city views comfortably merging with the gently sloping topography. Arranged around a central atrium, the pitched ceilings and clerestories create a light filled bay that blends the warm interior space with the outdoors. This offering is especially rare in that it has been carefully and lovingly maintained in its original condition.
