Gable Residence : 1968


1210 Colby Dr, Davis, CA

O: Myra Ann Kagen Gable + Richard W. Gable

"Iconic and elegant,this single-story Streng Bros. home was built in 1968 and has remained completely original and lovingly preserved by its only owner. By designing the home to be deeper and wider, the house has a generous feeling of space that you sense immediately upon entering. It offers impressive clear redwood walls throughout the common living spaces, wood and brick floors, clerestory windows, more thoughtful storage than you would expect for this era, original mid-century lighting fixtures, a large laundry room, raised foundation and full two car garage. The family room/kitchen, living room and master bedroom all open to the south facing backyard. With a dreamy tea house that sits over an expansive koi pond, the back yard is built for you to put down your phone and pause awhile. Around the corner from Willett School, and a 10 minute bike ride to UC Davis, this location is unbeatable. Eminently livable now, there is potential to maintain the integrity while making updates." listed for sale by Jamie Madison, Jan 28, 2022
