From the Agent: "Built in 1933, this Bauhaus-inspired home was designed for the family of well-known composer and pianist Henry Cowell by the renowned master architectural firm Morrow & Morrow, a few years after Irving Morrow designed the architectural components of the Golden Gate Bridge. This architecturally significant home has been designated Landmark No. 270 by the SF Planning Commission. While keeping its architectural integrity intact, the redwood plank-clad home has been thoughtfully updated throughout and boasts an impressive floor plan with large floor-to-ceiling windows that flood the interior with natural light and provide breathtaking views of mature trees, hills, and the ocean. This home is complete with beautiful mahogany floors, built-in cabinets and bookcases, two-car parking, a large rear yard, and an exceptional roof deck with expansive, spectacular views."
The Cowell House located at 171 San Marcos Avenue in San Francisco, California, is currently listed for $3,700,000 by Bert Keane of Vanguard Properties.
