re: why the thread was locked: mid century gent said that my post about it being a potential landmark was 'opinion.' No, it was not. i just said that IF you turned it around - you could see it another way. AND clearly that is why the city council approved the plan in the first place. they said they...

jesgord,
Thanks for posting the article link. I was having flashbacks looking at the picture of the original Halston townhouse. I remember seeing pictures when it was first completed and thinking that it was one of the best townhouses I had ever seen. Still do!!!!!

grh122,
Thanks for posting these great pics! Every time I review the set of pics I see an additional detail I had missed. Are those Terrazzo floors? It's hard to tell from the pictures. An amazing house from any angle or room! :D

Primo view and location, at the very top of the street. Thought this price seemed inflated, so I looked it up on Zillow (yes, I know Zillow is not completely accurate). According to Zillow it's worth about 1.3-1.5mil. How did we get to 6.5mil? Would love to see better interior pictures. The view is ...

Miguel,
I must admit some of the homes you have posted are incredible buys! Didn't realize there were that many Mays in the central valley. What do Mays normally sell for in the central valley?
Thanks

There is just so much great period furniture and fixtures out there that are begging to be put back in their rightful homes. Look past the ratty upholstery on a vintage piece and have it re-covered. It will look much better and you can use your own imagination instead of a catalog. Check out vintag...

Terrazzo is such a great choice for flooring! I grew up in Florida were almost all homes in our area came standard with Terrazzo floors. They were indestructible, although very slippery when wet. Back then, most people couldn't wait to cover them with wall to wall carpeting. :cry:

Toured this property last year! It's been on the market a very long time! It's absolutely amazing in person, almost all original. I agree with the comments made about the location earlier in the thread. The location really doesn't suit the home. It's hard to justify the price tag in this part of Bur...
