Modern Coastal/Mid-Century by Mark Mills
Described as an "Authentic Genius" by Ansel Adams, Mark Mill's style evolved from Frank Lloyd Wright's Taliesin West School in Arizona. Originally built in 1958, this Mid-Century Modern home on a 1.1 acre lot is now a larger 3 bedroom, 3 bath residence of 1727 square feet. The redwood-and-concrete ribbed, single level home evokes both the southwestern desert, and a mid-western farm. The abundant light admitted by the 9 massive windows is a classic Mills trademark; and during rain showers these windowpanes become wavy lenses as they direct sheets of water onto the garden. An added highlight are the hand-painted kitchen and bath tiles by noted ceramicist, Ephraim Doner. For auto fans, the property offers a barn-style garage with metal roll top door plus another 500 square foot workshop for auto storage. Includes an art studio, a greenhouse and raised garden beds. A special property from a special era that remains in vogue.
