Fun facts about 2 Glen Alpine and the architects
The house at 2 Glen Alpine was designed in 1924 by Williams and Wastel. It was built for Robert Dunn, a dentist, who invested in real estate and built several houses in Piedmont and office buildings in Oakland. Dunn and his wife had 5 children when they built this house and lived here for 20 years.

Architects Morton A. Williams and Ralph E. Wastel were well-respected architects who practiced together in the 1920s to the 1940s. They specialized in designing Period Revival houses and commercial buildings and designed several Period Revival houses in Piedmont. In addition to this grand Mediterranean design, they designed the large Tudor house up the hill at 52 Glen Alpine.
