Eames Chair Manufacturer's Mid-Century in Crestwood Hills

New, 47 comments


Here's a listing that oughtta have the mid-century modernists (particularly the ones over at Lotta Living) in a lather. Located in the celebrated architectural enclave of Crestwood Hills, the two-story residence was designed in 1963 by architect Harold M. Sutton for Irving Green, who collaborated with Charles and Ray Eames on the manufacture of their iconic molded-fiberglass-and-resin chairs. (Any guesses as to whether there might be a few of these aforementioned chairs in the listing pix?) Sited on a .28-acre lot, the 2,281-square-foot house features two bedrooms, two baths, an art studio, an office, a library, a shockingly blue kitchen with double oven, "walls & ceilings of exposed stained wood decking, massive plate glass windows & hand-laid parquet floors," plus ocean, city, and mountain views. On the market for the first time and described as "preserved & maintained in near original character," it's asking $1.685 million.
