Built in 1957 for a local oil baron, this home was designed by August Perez and featured in Archetictural Record. In nearly original condition, any up-grades such as sub zero, etc. have been carefully retro-fitted. Museum quality mid-century modern with expansive rooms and a luxury of storage on an enormous lot steps from the lake. A rare 2 owner house awaits a modernist owner.

    Amazing. But for a few non-architectural elements (zebra print on the chair, dress hanging, etc), you wouldn’t know these photos weren’t taken 50-60 years ago!

    This is a nice change from the normal “old” house, isn’t it! I’d feel very cool if I lived in a house like this.

    It’s amazing how rare this style of house is. Seems 95% of new homes in the 50’s were ranches, split levels, capes or “colonials”.

    I love this! This is a perfect “atomic age” house! Makes me feel sort of competitive with the USSR at the moment!

    Lara Jane, there’s no reason to think the zebra print isn’t authentically from 60-70 years ago, or even longer. Zebra print has been “in” forever. (And then out again. And then back in.) And I’m pretty sure I’ve seen that exact chair with zebra fabric on it, from that era.
