It’s safe to say you have never seen anything like Cynthia and Dan Deaver’s Orinda home. Designed and built over the course of more than two years, completed in 2002, and lovingly perfected since, this is a one-of-a-kind residence that isn’t shy about making a statement.
The attention paid to every detail (however minute), the standard of craftsmanship, and the quality of the materials used—from the verdigris copper on the exterior facing to the powder-coated stainless steel stair railings and kitchen backsplash—evoke the hard work and painstaking consideration that would be applied to creating a work of art: a 6,000-square-foot sculpture, perhaps, with living room and bedrooms thrown in.
