Here is more about this fantastic house and what was done to revive it:
"This building is one of several remaining A.W. Pattiani houses in Alameda and Berkeley. The house had been significantly altered by additions and expansions on its west and north elevations, by the removal of original ornament and by the application of wood shingles over original wood siding and previously ornamented surfaces. The west addition included a wraparound porch where none previously existed, covered by a squat, glass-roofed pergola supported on classical style columns. The result of the cumulative changes was a house that was no longer recognizable as an A.W. Pattiani Queen Anne.

The house now sports original-style ornament and a beautiful covered wraparound porch with many of the "gingerbread" details that A.W. Pattiani was known for.

Restoration and ornamental carpentry by Guild member Skeeter Jones / Clearheart Design. Fellow Guild member Lynne Rutter collaborated with the owners to design the color scheme, adding a robin's egg blue/green ceiling to help showcase the covered porch.
