This 1961 house was for Mitchell's sister and her large family which included 7 children. The large family made for large bedrooms, a large family space and a large kitchen.
The sellers are the original owners, so many of the original finishes are intact.
The house is adjacent to Kamrath's own house and several other Kamrath designs (one recently demolished) on Tiel Way.
The large lot size and prime location make this house vulnerable to demolition by someone seeking to replace it with a row of several McMansions.
Kamrath maintained a steady friendship with the Wrights.
No the tile is a slight remodel. The formica counters were probably quite worn by then with a family that large.peterm wrote:This is a wonderful house. I do agree that for the most part, it wants and needs nothing, with the exception of some of the flooring, backsplashes, and countertops. Could that hacienda style tile be original?
The wood deck with the built in benches is one of many inviting touches...
