Call or email me. I do not want to be vague, but it is a very unusual situation. The house will not be on the MLS.

Thanks, Joe..It IS a great opportunity. Paint and flooring alone would do wonders. It appears the house was kept up and has been lived in lightly through the decades. The cabinetry, appliances and even the original formica are unmarred. Structural elements look good and strong. It would be a tragedy if a house this original were to be yucked-up. We are digging, hoping and looking for the right buyer to appear...like now.

We are still waiting for the best offer over $795,000. Offers will be presented as they come in. The house has 3 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms, around 2000 interior sq. ft. on over 1/3 acre of land. I have not seen a Fickett designed house in this original and vintage condition in years. The plumbing and electric are old but they still work, as do the vintage appliances. If you are or know someone who will save and restore this house, please contact us today. Don't make me go on a hunger strike until the right buyer appears.

OMG - this house rocks!!!! You have to go see the pics on the Valley Modern website. I am still drooling from them. Can you believe the PINK stove and dishwasher!!!?? Someone loved this house for many many years and my hope is that whoever buys this house will continue to love and cherish it as much.

Is the house in SUCH a desirable area that a developer would pay 800K for 1/3 of an acre!!?? I find that hard to believe...but I could be naive.

Thanks, everyone, for all your comments! This was an odd situation to say the least. We had only a few days to find a restoration-minded buyer or the house was going to be sold by the owners directly to a developer, basically for land value (yes, land value for the location and lot size is indeed that high). We convinced the owner to let us try to find a buyer who would restore rather than tear down. About 80 people saw the house in the first two days, and it has been in escrow since then. We provided the buyers with a lot of background and historical info on then architect and house and they plan to restore it.
