The Montgomery, Alabama neighborhood of Cloverdale a few outstanding midcentruy modern homes. Here is one that is on the market, very unusual: http://www.hatteam.com/house_hunter/house.asp?id=1204 . This is the text of the webpage and a virtual tour is available.
Own a bit of Montgomery history, "The Flintstone House" as it is known to the locals. Designed by Dean Vollendorf this Mid-Century Modern home is a prime example of Frank Lloyd Wright influenced style of organic architecture. Inside you will find splendid views from this circular layout where all rooms, except the one front bedroom, open to the circular shaped pool area. Components that are used in the design of the home are Phillipine mahogany, Marble from North Alabama, skylights, and the most unusual bar stools. This is truly the most unusual house and a must see! The floor plan is great for entertaining and the house itself is such a conversation piece. Although this property has numerous issues, once inside, you will appreciate its uniqueness, charm and character. Note, Pebbles and Bam Bam not included.
I see influences of both Wright and Goff. Wright in the wood detailing; Goff in the general form and the role the stone forms play in the composition. I particularly like how the minimally framed mitered corner glass blurs the enclosure between the window walls and the stone masses.
Thanks for the peek ! SDR
