The McDuffie Villa, built in 1925 by Willis Polk, sits on the edge of the wooded Claremont neighborhood in the East Bay. The 8,600 square-foot estate is on an acre of gardens initially designed by the Olmsted Brothers landscape firm. While Fischer Architecture oversaw the extensive restoration of the Mediterranean-style property, Georgina Rice & Co. brought the interiors to life. The clients love color and texture, and the home's rooms have an intimacy despite their large scale. Each space features layers of sophisticated fabrics and carpets that reflect the wife's love of textiles. For the husband, an avid reader, a library with a custom curved sofa provides the perfect retreat.
