Now for the good stuff, its obvious from the first couple photos, this is a low profile ranch modern with one roofline. From the street the house indicates its very private nature with the brick wall extending across the front to become a screen wall for the entry coutyard. The brick on this house was reused from a local building demolished back when this house was built. The patterned opening in the brick adds a nice element to the very simple facade.
To get to the front door you descend a couple of steps into the entry courtyard, in many ways the courtyard is the heart of this house. The house layout itself wraps around this courtyard with many access points directly into this outdoor space. Overhead an open grid wood trellis extends the roofline to give the courtyard some sense of enclosure. Lush landscaping and a former water feature are centerpieces. Here the house envelope has glass on all sides of the courtyard.
The house features built-ins in almost every room & space. Each bedroom has its own built in closet and desk, an example of a desk on the right.
The bathrooms in the house are still original. Here the double inset sinks can be seen. I always get a kick over an original MCM bathroom still remaining, most of the time these are lost through the decades or renovation and style mishaps, yep I'm talking to you 1980's.
Out back the houses transparency shows up unobsured as floor to ceiling windows line the living space and dining areas. The rear patio is subtractively inset into the volume of the house featuring the inside tile floors extending onto the patio slab.
Another Bud Goetz around the corner on another street. Very similar to the house featured in this post. I was tempted to knock on the door and talk to the owners but thrift stores were calling my name. Perhaps we should set up a little 3 house circuit tour down the road. A special thanks to Susan Jackson of Susan Jackson Interiors for hosting the chat.
