Hyman

⬥  1958 Mid-Century Modern – Built as a model for an Ocean Boulevard high rise that was never constructed, this Killingsworth, Brady & Smith design has been restored in tribute to its post-and-beam style. Floor-to-ceiling sliders frame views of the Pacific.

 

Bungalow

1940 Bungalow – This Bixby Knolls home retains the charm of a wood shake roof, round top door and extensive original cabinetry despite three expansions to 3.600 square feet. Kenneth Wing’s 1950 redesign added upstairs living quarters and distinctive dormer windows.

 

 Mid Century

A Mid-Century interpretation of a traditional style home built on the Rivo Alto Canal in Naples with a casual lifestyle in mind.

Also on Rivo Alto Canal, and built by the Firestone family as a summer home, this unexpected New England style beach cottage has an open floor plan revealing many innovative details.

 

Waller

⬥ 1961 English Regency – Designed by Edward Kllingsworth, this home in a gated area near Virginia Country Club, spans nearly 8,500 square feet overlooking a verdant fairway. Parquetry flooring from Europe and paneling from a home once owned by Marion Davies.
