David Glass House - San Ramon by rschnaible http://flic.kr/p/navzjf According to Wiki - The 16-acre (6.5 ha) farm is located at the base of the Berkeley Hills, and Oak Creek divides it in two almost equal parts. The northern portion of the site contains all of the structures built or used by the Boones, except for the cistern, which sits atop a hill on the southwest corner of the property. The structures include two houses, fourteen outbuildings and two pergolas. The houses represent almost a century of residential development in the valley. The Boone House is a 22-room Dutch colonial that was remodeled several times since it was built in 1900. This home will eventually serve as a retreat and meeting center. The fourteen outbuildings, which vary significantly in date of construction and size, include a barn originally built in the period from 1850 to 1860, a 7,000-square-foot (650 m2) farm equipment and automobile storage structure and a three-building walnut processing plant that includes a three-story hulling and drying structure.
The southern portion of the property is now home to the David Glass House, a Victorian style structure dating to the late 1860s to early 1870s. This home was relocated from its original site at Lora Nita Farm. The Glass House is a two-story, wood-frame dwelling with a one-story rear wing, which may be older than the main body of the house. The tank house, somewhat modified from historic condition, is a two-story, wood-frame structure that is probably slightly later in date than the house. The Glass House exterior will soon be restored to its original beauty. Following that part of the project, the landscaping around the home will be reworked to resemble a photo of the home from 1890s.
