Location: Oakland, Calif.
Designed by Oakland-based firm BaranStudio, this two-floor contemporary was completed just earlier this year. The 1,486-square-foot residence, currently furnished as a greige-tacular modern escape, features an open-floor plan and irregularly-shaped windows throughout. The first floor holds the living and dining rooms, plus a chef's kitchen, while the second level contains three bedrooms and two-and-a-half baths. The property also comes with a private driveway, a backyard big enough for a picnic table, and—perhaps most importantly at this point in time in California—drought-resistant, low-maintenance landscaping.
