Another stunning custom Carter Sparks home for sale

Yesterday I posted some additional information regarding Sacramento region mid-century modern architect Carter Sparks. I've also previously posted a little bit of history regarding Mr. Sparks. I wanted to do this so you had a little background on his life and work.

This beautiful four bedroom, four bath, 3,200 square foot Sparks home was referred to me by blogger J at ModernValley; we've been discussing Sparks' work and MCM in Sacramento a bit over the last few months.

Per the listing:
"A true master piece of relaxation. This warm inviting home offers custom wood working with vaulted ceilings, wood floors throughout, floor to ceiling glass windows over looking a meticulous landscape with custom ponds. You can totally relax with the privacy that will make you feel you are in the country while you are minutes away from downtown. This Carter Sparks Custom home is perfect for anyone who wants privacy with a flare. It also has a guest house for friends or staff. This is a beautiful home."
More regarding this home directly from the realtor.


Just gorgeous. If you can do it, now is a good time to break into your piggy bank for homes like these! For the record -- I'm not a real estate agent nor 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.

Keep these photos coming. We plan to build a home in the next year. This home is just what I have in mind but on a small scale. I have started a folder of photos, many of them from your blog. Thank you, thank you.

Absolutely! How exciting to build your own home!

I know!! We have no experience at this. I just know, all the houses I see on the market are not at all what we want, so why not build something that has the beautiful design from the earlier days? We will take all of our photos and ideas to a local green architectural firm and work closely with them. I am so excited about this and every time I read your blog, I am more inspired. We will definitely steal design ideas from your beautiful home. Hope you don't mind.

I don't mind at all! I believe all people design things based upon what they have seen and has inspired them. I've been drawing inspiration from the architecture and design I saw in the 60's during my childhood.
