Mark’s Preview Notes:

A very interesting property!  Uniquely situated on 2 side-by-side lots specifically designed to allow maximum views of the Valley.  Certainly Mid-Century Modern design and construction although it has forced air instead of radiant.  The original owners showed remarkable care through the decades but a light remodeling facelift will be a very rewarding project.

Mark’s Preview Notes:

Another clean Mountain View – Thompson Mackay.  The hardwood floors are great but the wainscoting in the master bathroom doesn't feel very modern.

Mark’s Preview Notes:

I know you can't see that this looks like a Mid-Century townhome, and the builder of this complex still eludes me, but this is a modern townhome complex with tongue/groove ceilings, post and beam construction, and globe lights of the period.  An identical unit just listed for $599k sold in 8 days so getting this at $420k is a fantastic deal!  Good schools, decent size, modern flair, and dual patios.  It is built around the corner from a pocket of late-model Eichlers so I believe the whole community keeps a very cohesive look.  Check it out, surely it won't last long.

Mark’s Preview Notes:

This Mackay mimics the Eichler Courtyard model where you enter the front yard behind the fence that then opens to a usable court.  Its very clean and deserves a look if you have a chance.
