Preview Notes:

This can only be
classified as a truly stunning Ultra Modern masterpiece.  Steel beam
construction with radiant heat on both floors, a brilliant floorplan for
this corner lot which allows you to openly join in the neighborhood yet
have privacy for spacious outdoor living.  The glass mosaic backdrop
for the staircase is truly something to be seen!

Preview Notes:

Someone will enjoy
getting into this neighborhood for this price but this Mid-Century
Modern home really isn’t anything terribly special.  I would remove the
fireplace mantel which really doesn’t fit the time period.

It’s a brilliant move to use the
window-centric architecture of the 1962 Mid-Century Modern home to
showcase the views.  The driveway may be a little intimidating but worth
a look!

Preview Notes:

From the outside and curb appeal, this
home has all the elements of a Mid-Century Modern home from 1953 — the
angular roofline and roughcut siding.  However the eclectic mix of
French-country kitchen and odd textures mean you need to bring a
designer with you to bring this home back to what it should be.

Preview Notes:

Unfortunately, these photos are
disgracing this wonderful home.  Richard has great vision for how to
transform a modern home and is a great developer, but the photos don’t
show how magnificent this house has become.  Extensive use of slab
marble throughout the bathrooms, tiered decking to add usable outdoor
space for entertaining, and a beautiful canyon view are just some of the
accents worth seeing here.  I think the downstairs even has 10ft
ceilings, almost unheard of back in the day!
