That's really beautiful.

I just wonder about that "public-sized" master bath, though. . .or maybe it's the photography ? Do people practice their dancing in the bathroom now, or hold yoga classes ? :)

SDR,

Those "public sized" baths are quite common in L.A. I call them party baths.

Isn't that a nice house! Thanks for posting that Jamal. Wish I had been interested in architecture when I lived in Ann Arbor. Great town that.

Jamal is back in the house!

Thanks for that heads up! I did manage to see that article last month in Metropolitan Home. It is a beautiful house and great for your neighborhood.

I did browse around and found these two interesting links to two slide shows at the Met Home site. They are worth the time it takes to browse through them.

modest? my thought as well.
but brilliant use of a lovely piece of land. chock full of personality.
what a delightful place to live.
see what a chubby wallet can do?
save and restore a gem instead of tear it down and build a grand staircase.
the bathroom seems like a different home. whats the word for nude-phobia? i would develop that for sure.
that may be the original cork near the living room. looks like mine. a gentle, uneven fading. develops a nice patina.

The variegated color of the cork tile may well be the original specification; many of the installations I am familiar with have this appearance. Nice stuff, isn't it -- one of those "natural" materials, like wood and stone and brick.

There's room in the bath to set up a massage table. Now who wouldn't want that once a week if you could afford it? "Life is a banquet and most poor suckers is starving to death, you have live, live, live!" (from Auntie Mame)
