Silver Windows – Piedmont Pines

Oakland Tribune Jan 1937

“Silver Windows” was a display home in the Piedmont Pines section of Montclair. The house opened for the public to see in 1936. The house was designed by F. Harvey Slocombe. It is on Darby Drive.

Windows, from which one glimpses the bay through lofty pines are not the only feature of this new show home.

The kitchen, with its floors curving into the wall, eliminating dust-gathering corners was of particular interest to the women visitors. The kitchen was “all-metal” with a gleaming sink, drainboard, work board, and cabinets. Oakland Tribune Mar 19, 1937
