Pristine Piece of Earthy Bay Area Modernism Asks $1.16M

Recently added to the mixed bag of for-sale homes by Frank Lloyd Wright students is a $1.16M three-bedroom in Walnut Creek, Calif., which hardly looks a day older than when it was built, in 1948. Or, for lack of archival photos, how one imagines that East Bay modernist Frederick Dyer-Bennet wanted the single-story to look, with the large glass panes running along the perimeter ensuring that the mix of green-tinged wood and metal fixtures on the inside stay warm-looking rather than dingy. According to the listing, which calls the 1,770-square-foot home a "private gem with incredible views," Dyer-Bennet spent some time studying under Wright at Taliesin before the Berkeley-trained British architect settled in the Bay Area, where he built a number of homes. Investigate the built-in surrounded living room den below, and see if it doesn't make the $90K price reduction sound even more appealing.
