Greenbrae, CA

The contrast of a white stucco privacy wall with the WoodRX Chestnut finish on wooden gate door #29-10 in Greenbrae, CA (Marin County)

Rocky Mountain gate latch E414 and the matching deadbolt DB511.
Because the gate height is only 48″, the dead bolt has been placed below the latch, making it somewhat cumbersome–although not impossible–to reach and release by reaching over the short gate.

Seattle, Washington

Prowell’s inimitable wood garden gate 29-18. Copied, undercut, and knocked-off by more aspiring gate-makers than there are diamond thieves in South Africa.

How hard can it be? it’s one of the simpler gates we offer. And yet for almost a dozen consecutive years–long before the first knock-off artist arrived on the scene– #29 held the top spot in sales from an expanding corpus of the original ten gate styles to when we reached 80 and only then did it slip. Slip to below the top ten over the following few years because 1) We developed the similar Gate style #31 and #30- 2) Our later designs were simply better? 3) The knock-offs had propagated like baby buzzards, zeroing in on the simplest of Prowell’s designs that fell within their do-able sphere; 4) No one is impressed with the original connection to Isabel Allende since no one actually still reads her books? Or reads at all.

We begin with a late 2017 commission in Seattle, returning to the landscape architect Bill Williamson who has repositioned the horizontal middle rails to accommodate the decorative hinge-fronts. He has also shown us his own solution to the common setting for the #29 that fits to an encompassing surround stucco wrap. The jambs here had been embedded into a pre-formed casting, allowing the gate itself to fill the opening w/o the visible muscle of the jambs. There is also a bent-lamination header trim to complete the entry.

The original wood garden gate #29 was designed and created for novelist Isabel Allende in Marin County, CA.
For 25 years commanding the top position on this page until up-ended by someone in the above photos who simply knows their way around a camera lens.

Note: The false hinge-fronts shown were custom made by a small decorative ironworker in North Carolina who is no longer practicing his trade.

Once in a while Prowell will agree to providing the header jamb. For this, we require a template of the opening mailed to us. No mathematical radiuses. A tangible template, from which we can match the existing arch.

Hinges sourced by the homeowners

P.S: The gray skies? If you move to the Sea Cliff neighborhood of San Francisco, you’ve made a pact with yourself to welcome 300 days a year of fog so thick, the Golden Gate Bridge in the near distance is a faint outline. The same bridge that added a small fortune to the price you paid to have such a view in the first place. On the other hand, if you detest heat, humidity, blazing sunlight, ice storms, hurricanes, snowstorms, and rampaging floodwaters, the Sea Cliff neighborhood is a slice of heaven. Highs in the low 60’s and lows in the high 50’s, day after day after day.

Less a photo highlighting the privacy wood gate than something to show us how the gate itself is one component in a wheel of contributing elements. The gate is mildly distressed to help create the look of an aged setting.

A typical arched gate #29 within a typical Californian propensity for stucco privacy walls.
All so very very typical. Not so typical if you’re viewing this image from just about anywhere else on the planet.

And for the heck of it, the view looking out from the inner courtyard– Tiburon Bay, Belvedere, and the San Francisco skyline. A view that’s configured and negotiated into the asking price of the actual lot and the house like the blue-ribbon appendage that it is.

A seemingly impenetrable sense of privacy and security. And yet with the thoughtful planning of a lawn and garden bed, as well as the integrity of locally quarried stone, the setting speaks more to an inviting enclosure than the formidable fortress of an entry privacy gate.

Showing a semi-solid stain matching the house trim. Regarding such finishes: We suggest you allow the gate to air out, or acclimate to it’s first exposure to the full climate of sun and precipitation prior to applying any painted or solid-body finishes. Anything, basically, that is not an absorbing finish.

An older gate from the mid-90’s when we were still using figured grain instead of vertical grained cedar. It also appears as if a finish with a sealant coat was used, which results–within months– with a splotchy, often crackling appearance. Read more: Exteriors Finishes and More
