Property Description

The rarest offering: A 1957 John Black Lee Modern expanded and renovated sensitively for the owners by architect Joel Sanders to retain its original aura. Intimately interconnected with light and landscape, the residence is a uniquely modern, comfortable and convenient evolution and expression of the best in Midcentury Modern architecture. ''The final result is a new expansion that is discrete, yet handsomely complements the original Lee design. By his manipulation of rectilinear planes and use of stone and wood, Sanders has made the living spaces contemporary and comfortable while dramatizing Lee's contribution to Midcentury Modern. '' Architectural Record 2018 Two offices overlook an extraordinary landscape. Fifth bedroom is currently being used as an office, but there is additional coverage to add a bedroom or office as desired. Approved pool site.
