I read with some interest Carol Blitzer's article and the claim by Marc Porat that this house was designed by Pedro deLemos, it wasn't. I am the architect who renovated Waverly Oaks, deLemos' home, and the Allied Arts Guild, 520 Ramona and 535 Ramona, all designed by deLemos. This home exhibits none of deLemos' signatures and is not his work. I have discussed this claim with Phylis Munsey, deLemos' granddaughter who owns deLemos properties in Palo Alto. She has written a book documenting her grandfathers work here in Palo Alto and Carmel and she agreed, this home was not designed by deLemos. This is the second article I've seen that makes this claim and it's simply not true. If it were a deLemos property I would be able to recognize it and so would his granddaughter. A little fact checking may be in order. He worked in the Spanish Eclectic style, not Tudor.
