Estate-Sized Spanish Contemporary

Maybe I’m completely obsessed — but I think homes like this 1970s contemporary are the next big thing. In this case, I’m being literal — it’s over 4200 square feet! But with these homes I see a unique intersection: open, expansive designs that capture some mid-century modern elements, a Spanish theme that helps them feel like native, contextual architecture, and larger size and functionality demanded by today’s families. 

This home has a unique history. It was sold just two and a half years ago for $1,080,000. It was the quintessential “grandma’s house” — lovingly maintained, but largely true to its 1975 construction materials. Now, it’s back and completely remodeled. The upgrades is veritable who’s who of luxury materials and finishes. I have no doubt that a significant sum of money has been spent on this house. The work looks top-notch. 

But…I can’t help but feel like things are a little generic. It’s the kind of house I want to go, show, and take clients into for 30-60 minutes to really take it in. In photos the color palette looks a bit disjointed, but often times with homes of this size, you to further delineate the spaces. With 2000 square feet — everything can be white and it looks amazing. With over the twice the size, the monochromatic scheme can be a bit boring.

Not everyone needs 4200 square feet, but if you do, this is one of those homes that offers everything. From being a turnkey property to over 16,000 square feet of land. All with lots of glass and beautiful tongue-and-groove open beam ceilings. Oh, and don’t forget the polished concrete floors.
