The Tipper-Grundt Residence, colloquially known as the Pod House, is the only one of Krisel's designs to deviate from his signature style. Made up of five interconnecting pods, the unique five-bedroom, four-and-a-half bath property is now being offered at $2,495,000.
Built in 1968, the stylish midcentury home features soaring ceilings, dramatic fireplaces, original white terrazzo and brass inlaid floors, and hand-forged rock walls. The large lot includes an expansive lawn, a pool, a spa, and outdoor entertaining areas complete with two fire pits and a built-in grill.
