About This House:
This “MCM Gem”, designed by architect Joe Michels, is truly a “one of a kind masterpiece” in both it’s form and it’s function! Built into a sloped lot, the large living / dining windows and the expansive lower level family room windows provide views beyond compare. The current owners have created a modernist landscape that allows privacy and a true connection to natural beauty and movement, as the aspen and the karl foerster grasses sway with the wind. The lawn has been graded flat and the corten steel retaining walls create space for yard games, TaiChi classes, music venues and peaceful outdoor gatherings.
The interior opens to vaulted redwood ceilings, clerestory windows and open connected spaces, filled with natural light. Large room sizes provide flexible use for entertaining , yet the scale remains intimate for everyday living. One bedroom / one bathroom on each level, plenty of storage, activity/ mudroom, concrete patio spaces, a screened porch and two car detached (also redwood) garage, in this “walkable-to-everything” neighborhood, make this home a once in a lifetime opportunity!
