This rather nice whitewashed, curvaceous Bauhaus home, built circa 1938, is the work of architect Arthur Holden, a lesser-known designer who friend of both Frank Lloyd Wright and the academic Lewis Mumford. The house's curved walls were meant to take advantage of its five-and-a-half acre hilltop site, where natural light and lush surroundings. Inside the 4-bedroom, 1-bath house (which clocks in at 4,035 square feet). Some of the interior finishes, like floors of slate and terrazzo, may not be everyone's jam per se, but they do give the interiors a certain shade of era authenticity. Hopefully, the house's next owners will respect its history, alongside any changes they'll inevitably make.
