I love those 360-degree tours -- haven't seen any in a while. These seem really cranky to load (I have DSL on an iMac) -- but I finally got to see the main shot of the first one. WOW -- that is one sexy property -- a dreamland within stone (?) walls. No architect? This one has the bravado of Paul Rudolph. . .

Thanks -- SDR

Hi Ann,

so ... I've seen a lot of "tabby" driveways without knowing the material's name. And so far I also didn't know that it's used to form "rock lookalikes".

Thanks for the information! It never occured to me that the material of the walls is man-made. Obviously, one should never take anything for granted.

Connie :idea:

Most interesting. Would the material be sufficiently structural to support steel beams and stabilize a structure, as in the first house, above? (I can't seem to load any of those wonderful images, again -- even with DSL.) Could tabby be used as a surface, like stucco, over other masonry materials, do you suppose? Or do I underestimate it?

So how did 'tabby'

as a term evolve into also meaning a type of house cat?

Webster (1958): [. . ."Attabi, a quarter of Baghdad where it was manufactured; so named after a prince named Attab], 1. a silk taffeta with stripes or wavy markings; watered silk. 2. a gray or brown cat with dark stripes. 3. any domestic cat, especially a female. 4. an old maid. 5. a female gossip."

No mention of the building material. How times change. . .?

Connie -- There was no mention of the architects of the two houses you showed us, above? It would be interesting to have some "horse's mouth" info about them -- including the infamous tabby walls!

Were others able to view the houses? Am I beating a dead horse, here?

From what I recall, the "tabby" being made today looks more like cement with sea shells pressed into it while wet. Someone currently living in the South should chime in here (preferably, with Southern accent).

The website listed above mentions "pseudo-tabby" which evolved from the original tabby -- apparently there has been some evolution in the material.

It's very quaint, though. The old stuff seems to be walls and straight forms; the new stuff is bird baths and other decorative objects as well.

You are correct. The bedroom wall appears to be stone. The outdoor wall -- around the yard -- is tabby.

Two years later I have to dig up this thread because I found out about the architect of the first house - Darrell F. Fleeger. He built it for his family in 1962.

It is for sale again and listed with for $900,000.

Sales history on Zillow says
01/12/2004: $465,000
06/10/2003: $403,000

The virtual tours in the first post still work.
