Don't miss this stunning gem tucked in Land Park and was on the Sacramento Mid-Century Modern Home Tour this last June.
According to my research for the Tour guidebook, this two bedroom, two-story, 1963 custom home was designed by Robert N. Hill of Morris Construction Company. According to city records, the home’s first residents were real estate developer Robert C. Powell and his wife, Jeanette, an award-winning interior designer. Robert C. Powell developed several communities and properties in Sacramento including Campus Commons, Governor’s Square, Gold River, and Pavilions Shopping Center. Morris Construction Company was operated by Robert S. and Steven T. Morris. Their company built many homes throughout Sacramento.
This unique home includes its original pool, dramatic floating staircase, broken slate floors and concrete masonry. There is even a little door near the bar for passing cool drinks to guests outside at the pool! The current owner recently and sensitively remodeled her home using natural and hand-crafted materials. An open floorplan and floor-to-ceiling windows provide a perfect setting to showcase modern furniture and art.
More gorgeous pix of this home here (first home posted).
The home was also recently featured in a detailed article in the June issue of Inside Publications, which can be downloaded here.
When I was researching this home for the tour, I felt that there was more to know about its history. Will continue to research and post when/if I find out.
