Architect's own house; Howard designed this originally for the lawyer Warren Gregory who owned a large parcel of land in the vicinity of this house in the Berkeley Hills. Gregory, a stout backer of the University of California and its faculty, leased the dwelling back to his architect for the rest of Howard's life. Howard designed another, earlier house for Gregory (1904) in which the lawyer and environmentalist lived for many years. The architect and Dean of the College of Environmental Design, William Wurster, later lived in this 1904 house from the early 1950s-1973.

Julia Morgan designed a library added to Howard's house in 1927.
