This gracious home was built in 1933 by Milton Scott Bonds, who built several other homes in the neighborhood. Bonds-built homes are generally characterized by exceptionally sturdy construction and lovely details.

30 Halkin Lane, located between Spruce Street and Cragmont Avenue, enjoys big Bay views and wonderful details: distinctively arched doorways, handcrafted beams in the living room, clinkerbrick fireplace (reportedly the bricks were originally ship ballast), fine hardwood floors, grand windows, and large-scaled rooms.

Recent improvements include substantial foundation and seismic retrofit work, re-worked tile roof, seamlessly expanded and remodeled kitchen (designed by Jarvis Architects and executed by Rutherford & Singlestad Builders), skylights, fine wrought iron details, restored light sconces in dining room and living room, a hot tub, and rebuilt retaining walls at the rear of the property.
