Wanted to post this one. It absolutely needs to go to a MCM fan. Unfortunately the acreage of the estate is being sold off in parcels. We need someone to purchase this home and save it from any possibilty of tearing it down to build a McMansion. Anyone over there in the SF Bay area interested?

Resort Maybe?

16,000 square feet is a lot of house for one family. Maybe someone could purchase this property and turn it into a resort? The roof line is really dramatic! Not so sure about the "restoration", are those Granite counter tops in the kitchen (my pet peeve), accented by inappropriate track lighting? :cry:

Yes I know, ugh, the grainte cliche counter tops. I would have preferred a restovation. but all things considered it remains pretty close to orginal. I do know it is owned by a developer, which is why I am troubled by what may happen.

Just noticed the dining room is floating above a sub-floor. Would love to see this property in person! I'm sure the pictures don't do it justice. Has anyone toured this property after the restoration?

The agent I refer to call, Irmgard Kenny, has recently seen it, she called me to stop by with her, but I just could not go at that time. I am trying to have a viewing, but they are very particular about showing it to anyone who can't afford it. She was really stunned by the house, it has some movable floors, roofs and other trick design features.
Unfortunately the listing agent is quite clued about it, just another house to her.

I believe that's water under the dining room. Image

It's like a scene out of Blake Edwards' The Party. I wonder how many guests have got loaded and fallen in. Amazing - but what is that onyx light fixture doing in there?

Yes, you've got everything pretty much covered there, along with the spiral stair case (on the left background) & fireplace (reused from The Pink Panther movie produced 5 years earlier).

here's Steve Franken (the drunk waiter) taking a shortcut :)

By the way, would anyone know the address of the "real house" that was used for the exterior shots in The Party? The invitation card said "8239 Wild Rice Drive" :D

retromodernjeff,
Thanks for the pics. I can now clearly see the water under the dinning area.
Great lighting in the pool area. Everything looks top quality, money no object, as you mentioned.

I thought the pool lighting was a little Eero Saarinen, I will post a few more pics.
