Thornton Abell, a Case Study architect designed this home in 1959. The house has gone through a restoration by Tony Unruh. The first design element that caught my attention is that roof line. For me the roof line makes the house a unique piece of history. The drama that is created by its zig zag line is outstanding. The amount of glass that this house possesses defines that California outdoor living. I feel like the restoration was a good one, the house is ready to take another 50 years. The house is on the market but has a pending offer, no surprise there.
