The Finale




This house Cantilevered on a mountain has truly been a love fest. I fell for it the first time I saw it. Sitting there lonely, on a mountain, and overgrown and a simple gutted box. Only the original ceiling and fireplace remained. The window placement and rearrangement I did to the back kitchen area paid tribute to the original design. There was true beauty in the location and the quality of 60s design that is rare today. Built in 1962 it became our shelter during the storms of these past years. I purchased and restored the main Breuer style structure before the pandemic began. 26 ft + Beams were originally hauled in from California and every stick is redwood. Adding to this historically significant modern structure had to be done with the respect it deserves. It won't surprise me one day if we all find it out it is a Marcel Breuer or another significant architect. I count myself lucky to have saved it from a bad renovation or total destruction. It has given us so much solitude. It is carefully married to nature, views, rocks, and the mountain it sits atop. I hope the new owners treat it with the respect it deserves, I am sure they are in love with it too. The final, before, and in process images are below. Here is to preserving its future......
