Surprise! This house is awesome!

The 70s were actually pretty awesome, if you knew the right places to hang out. This house is one of those places. Built in 1973, you might not be thinking of modern gems, but you should. From 1965 to about 1975 there were some amazing, large, contemporary homes built with a very contextual, unpretentious, SoCal local feel to them. And I love whenever this model comes up (which is only about once a year). 

We don’t know who designed and built this home, but we have an idea. The tongue-and-groove ceilings along with the corner slumpstone fireplace echo elements we’ve seen in other Deane Brothers homes throughout Orange County. These are some of the largest and most-adventurously designed, though. What I like about this particular one is that it’s been well-updated. They emphasized the great original elements (high fives to whoever decided to NOT paint the tongue-and-groove ceiling). But they updated it to feel a bit more contemporary contemporary. Are some of the materials a tad generic (subway tile: I’m looking at you) yes, but how nice is it to have a completely finished house? 

We’re really digging the value: almost 2500 square feet of detached home in Irvine for under $1M, and I wouldn’t be surprised to see it go for more than the asking price. The only question mark on this one is yard space. It’s Irvine, so expectations for yard space are already a little lower, but with a 2500 square foot house + garage on a 6,000 square foot lot, I’m interesting in see how the backyard feels. The front has an awesome courtyard separated from the street. Good design.
