Another Custom Carter Sparks: Open house 11.15.09 2-4pm

Update: Fantastic pictures available regarding this home have been kindly posted by J of Modern Valley on his Flickr photostream. Don't miss them! They add incredible dimension and depth, as well as a detailed account of Mr. Sparks' incredible work!


Occasionally I find out about mid-century modern homes in the Sacramento region that are either for rent or for sale. I am not an agent nor am I affiliated with one. I am passing this information along as a public service to those who are interested and love MCM design and architecture as much as I do.

Today's fresh catch: Another gorgeous Carter Sparks custom home in Sacramento's Wilhaggin area near Fair Oaks Boulevard. This home was previously featured in a June 2005 "Inside Arden" article (via The Beam Guy).

Built in 1961; Three bedrooms and three baths; 3,143 square feet. See my previous post for a brief background on architect Carter Sparks.

Description:
"Carter Sparks designed with soaring main gallery that captivates breathtaking views of pool and garden. Sophisticated living space wrapped in massive brick & wood infrastructure crisply defined by sheer walls of butted glass. Dramatic Mid-Century Classic with Honduras mahogany paneling & bleach birch floors."

Thanks Leah, I'm tempted to go check it out this afternoon but I'm afraid it will make me want to move!

No need to move, just buy it and make it a mcm clubhouse. I'll be the first to join the club. Please Gretchen!
