A Cedar Clad Architect Designed Contemporary is in Contract

Last November, this house, by architect Alfredo De Vido, was listed for sale at $3.1 million. Looking back, we think we were slightly harsh about it, referring to it as “slightly dated on the exterior but the cedar shingles help soften the effect. Inside, it’s like Attack of the Knotty Pine.” Awww, upon taking a fresh look at the place, it strikes us as fun and funky. We did note that the furnishings go so well with the house we thought it might still be with the original owner from 1974.

We advised the new owner to invest in a lot of white paint immediately.

The house is pretty small at 1250 square feet, with three bedrooms and two baths, while there’s a fairly decent 0.93 of an acre of land. The property, listed by Martha Gundersen at Brown Harris Stevens, is now in contract at the last ask of $2.9 million.

We bet it’s gonna be torn down.

Location is not the absolute toniest, but it’s fine, especially at that price for that amount of land. What do you think? Is the poor old 70s survivor facing the bulldozer?
