If you've heard of architectural firm NBBJ, William J. Bain is the first B in there. The once-partner of Lionel Pries developed a reputation for high-quality residential design and was named a Fellow of the AIA in 1947. Bain built this Magnolia 4-BR in 1910 on 1.7 waterfront acres bordering Discovery Park and it recently hit the market for $3.35M. Not overly complicated, the home features delicate wood touches inside and comes with a pretty darn cute playhouse outside. No word on whether or not that was Bain, too.
