Bocce at the home of Gary Arnstein (San Anselmo, CA)


These great photos were submitted by Gary Arnstein. They highlight his beautiful home court in San Anselmo, California.


Arnstein's beautiful court was "carved into a hillside." The court is 59.5 feet x 13 feet and the side walls, retaining walls and deck is constructed with epi.


This shot gives you a feel for how the court was "carved into the hillside."


Scoreboard goes to 12 - the most common winning score in American, open rules bocce.


The court was made with oyster shell and clay and topped with oyster flour.


Says Arnstein, "The court features a kinetic sculpture that has a definite Bocce feel to it."


Arnstein: "I was the general contractor for the project and David Brewer was helpful in advising me." {Looks like they know what they're doing! - Click the photo to visit Bocce Court Builder David Brewer's web site.}


Stairway leads to a dining area and then to the house.


Great shot!

Home sweet home - "Our house is mid-century modern built in 1959 by a student of Frank Lloyd Wright and the bocce court and stone steps down to it is quite a contrast between the old and new world."

"The court is 59.5 feet x 13 feet and the side walls, retaining walls and deck is constructed with epi. The court was carved into a hillside so we overdid it using 4 x 6 posts every 3 feet."
