Mark’s Preview Notes: 

Practically the best views I've ever seen.  This is a striking ultra-modern home which takes full advantage of the views from every room through an ingenious loft-style second floor.  I would say this home is a sculpture, the walls are the canvas for magnificent art, and the windows deliver views of the valley for thought-provoking awe.  This is a fantastic place to call home, you will not be disappointed!

Mark’s Preview Notes:

Magnificent!  The grand entrance opens into the Great Room, surrounded by on the upper level loft-style dining room, kitchen, and reading room with surrounding deck.  This is truly open on 3 sides where views do not sacrifice privacy.  The natural gray tongue and groove ceiling contrasted with the brown beams seem like original choices of the architect.  Maybe the kitchen could use a makeover (white counters on white cabinets is too much for me) but I would certainly change out the candle-style chandeliers for Nelson lamps and move right in!

Mark’s Preview Notes:

Pushing the envelope for Mid-Century Modern being built in 1978, I still wanted to post this as an example for contemporary architecture with character in Mountain View.  I’m tired of being limited to only the Thompson Mackay and Mardell homes, so here you go.  Colorful, open floorplan, and tall ceilings.  The location does yield some freeway noise outside in the back yard however.

Mark’s Preview Notes:

Here is an amazing opportunity for a Mid-Century Modern jewel in Los Altos!  Radiant heat still working, wood paneling in great shape screaming for a hanging Rothko, original 9inch linoleum floor tiles done in  black are just calling out for Eames and Bertioa furniture, what more can you ask for?!  This is a great starting point for a makeover.  Update the kitchen and landscaping, you have a tricked out Atomic Ranch.  Who do you know looking for a great project?  Please tell me someone will step up and remodel/restore/ and expand this home.
