From the Agent: "When architect Jim Weiner found this house, it was a diamond in the rough. But he recognized the potential this jewel offered, keeping the good bones of the house and introducing a new kitchen, bathrooms, and other finishes in a sensitive and thoughtful manner. Inspired by the architecture of A. Quincy Jones, Whitney Smith, and Edgardo Contini, the original post-and-beam construction, tongue-and-groove ceilings, stacked bond fireplace, and floor-to-ceiling glass remain intact. Drawing on his environmental design expertise, the architect also provided a strong ecological sensibility to the project, with solar panels, an electric car charger, a rainwater collection system, and nontoxic cork and Marmoleum floors throughout. The result is a cohesive composition that is not only beautiful, but green."
721 Rochedale Way in Los Angeles, California, is currently listed for $2,795,000 by Brian Linder, AIA and Rick Grahn with The Value Of Architecture at Compass.
