The Searing House is a modern masterpiece and true work of art. Designed by the renowned architect Bruce Goff, this home blends minimalism, whimsical features, and the feeling of being in nature. With all sides of the home surrounded by windows or sliding doors, and the central triangular skylights in the middle, the Searing House has a flow that can only be explained by experiencing the feeling that takes place inside the walls. From the wood diving doors that meld into one another to enlarge or shrink the space, to the central fireplace, Goff was a true architectural genius when he designed the home. On the market for the first time since its creation, this piece of art has been meticulously maintained by the same family since its construction.

The floor plan and use of space are mind-blowingly clever! I love this house…it’s so warm and welcoming.

These MSM are just getting better! I think this would be my favorite.
Have to lose the formica however. . I wouldn’t change anything else.

I would leave the formica. It appears to be in excellent repair and I find that yellow in the kitchen to be sunny and cheerful. Strictly an ”eye of the beholder” kind of thing.
It’s moot though because, having spent more than half my life with the canine shedding champions otherwise known as German Shepherds, the thought of carpeting causes me to descend into fits of uncontrollable laughter.
They NEVER stop shedding. 24/7 The less said about the semi-annual molting, the better.

What an interesting home! The exterior doesn’t do credit to the goodness inside. The number of complex angles would give a builder agita.

My very first at seeing a TRIANGULAR fireplace! Three sided?? OMG. I’ve always been drawn to the double ones so often seen in MC homes but this—this tops them all. I think I’m in love! Better start digging in the couch for some spare change…..
