A Funky Architect-Designed Springs House Sells Over Ask


Remember this house? It hit the market back in March. By maverick postmodern architect Charles Moore, the place is far from ordinary. A magnificent two-story concrete fireplace anchors the home, while Moore’s interior planes form nooks and shelters for different activities.

Donlyn Lyndon, professor of architecture at UC Berkeley, said, “Charles wanted to give people a chance to put their own things in and to discover different qualities in a place than the first, most obvious ones, rather than reducing architecture to something completely minimal that then people wander around in.” Interesting fenestration allows light to enter the home at different times of the day.

Yes, if we were buying, we’d probably paint some of that knotty pine white or pale gray. We’d also put in a pool–with 0.60 of an acre of land, there’s room.  The house is 2200 square feet with four bedrooms and two bathrooms.

Espeically considering that this property includes its own dock, and private beach rights, asking price of $925K seemed like a good deal to us. Obviously it did to someone else too as the property sold for $5K over ask. Congrats to the new owner and well done,  Bryan Midlam, Vanessa Mothes, and Mata McAskill at Compass, the listing agents.
