Mark's Preview Notes:

This is an opportunity not to be missed! 
If you love mid century design then you must see this house.  Designed
by Aaron Green, who not only was a disciple of Frank Lloyd Wright, I
believe he was his west coast representative.  The architecture and
craftsmanship of this home echoes everything about the 1954 mid century
movement but what is most striking is how this home is absolutely
preserved, I’m not just saying original, I’m mean preserved!  Details
like the shoji panel sliding doors, hand-troweled concrete floors with
working radiant heat, and period correct Thermador appliances.  As if
that isn’t enough, there is a studio cottage just a few feet away on the
same property that was built in 1961, sharing all the same design
elements with the main house.  From the original cork flooring down to
the working Westinghouse refrigerator installed when new.  It’s all
there.  My excitement at the delight of seeing a home so well kept is
hard to contain and I kept reminding myself that I felt as if I was
walking through a movie set.  Unfortunately for most of us, it is only
available for purchase from Stanford faculty and staff, but there is
just too much to list and I had sensory overload going through this
house, just go experience it for yourself at the open house.
