The Most Unique Home You’ll See Today

This isn’t click bait, I promise. We probably could have said the most unique home this year and we wouldn’t be lying. My only apology, we don’t have more pictures to show you. Seriously, this one is unique, but I dig it. It’s one of those homes that needs the right eye, the right updating to make relevant in 2017. 

It’s located in the Los Coyotes Country Club neighborhood of Buena Park. This neighborhood is a treasure trove of unique homes. From the Buff, Straub, and Hensman tract Bellehurst tract homes to Don Wexler’s Style in Steel home. This is a cool neighborhood of big homes on big lots.

And boy is this home big…almost 5,000 square feet built in 1959. Do you have any idea what kind of person would have built and lived in a home like this in 1959? Someone like Walt Disney. And it’s funny, this home almost has the look of a European Tomorrowland. The dining room is so big that the table with seating for 12 looks hopelessly small. 

While one person might find a home like this gaudy and kitschy, I take a different view. This is a chance to own something unique. In a land known for the ubiquity of the tract home, this is a big deal. But it’s not just a unique home, this represents someone’s vision of the best home that could be. And while some of the trendy elements might look a little dated, this home has reached the age of an icon and I think there’s a way to sensitively restore, rejuvenate, and renovate it to relevance in the 21st century (whew…the 4 Rs!)
