Another Usonian

This one appears to be the house David Henken designed for his own family (next door to the one he designed for his parents). But how did it get to be over 4,000 square feet? What happened to the concept of Usonian houses being small?

MAK Tour

ch, the Avenel units were my favorite part of the tour as well! I want one! My second favorite was the Moore house. I was most disappointed by the Soriano-designed house. I'm trying to decide whether I have the guts to ask ModdTodd for a tour of the Pleasantville Usonia house when I'm in that area f...

Aaron Resnick house?

ch, I think you're right. Based upon the location within Usonia shown on the Coldwell Banker website, and the site plan included in Roland Reisley's book, appears that it has to be.

On a separate note, what was your favorite on this year's MAK Tour?

Palm Springs Butterfly Alexander

Egads,

Thanks for your interest in our house. You've actually confused our 1959 Meiselman with our 1961 Alexander. The Meiselman is currently in the MLS at the moment as a sale listing, the Alexander as a lease listing.

Alice Ball house

You have to wonder, though, about how this hateful woman (an architect, no less) came to buy this house. If you were the owner of a little gem like this, on a huge piece of property in a prime area like New Canaan, wouldn't you impose deed restrictions before you sold? Maybe not before the destructi...

Clifford Yates house in Santa Ana

Kaufmann House bids

We watched the auction via a live satellite feed hosted by the Palm Springs Art Museum. Although it was impossible to tell for sure, it appeared that the auctioneer simply "bid in" from $9M all the way to $14M (implying that the reserve was at least $14M). It simply went too fast from $9M ...

Susan, the Techbuilt Company with which Carl Koch was affiliated is the same Techbuilt which did the joint venture with Armco. But while there are LOTS of other Techbuilt houses around, I doubt there are any steel houses other than these two. The idea never took off. Most of the other Carl Koch Tech...

The one for sale in Ohio is noted to be one of only two such Techbuilt steel houses. The other one was in Yorktown Heights, N.Y. (northern Westchester), on the same street as the elementary school I attended. It was a joint venture between Techbuilt and Armco Steel, built in the mid-1960's, and open...

Thanks, Dirt Diva, for your nice comments. Actually, we purchased the house turnkey furnished, so most of what you see in the photos is vintage. Ironically, the upholstered pieces in the living room had been vintage Dunbar, but were in fairly ratty shape. Rather than have them reupholstered, we sold...

Actually, SkipHome is confusing our house with the house next door, which is also for sale. Our house is listed for $725,000. And it has sold twice before for $700,000 or more. And technically it's not in Racquet Club Estates, which is an Alexander Company tract. Ours is a Meiselman.
