This intriguing, Old Town Monterey residence is a mesmerizing blend of the traditional era, and Mark Mill's Coastal Modern style, which displays a modern elegance, strongly influenced by the natural landscape of the park-like 14,200 square foot site. Originally built in the 1920s, Mark Mills’ 1979 vision turned the 454 square foot cottage into a two bedroom, one and a half bath house with a den/library and a separate guest studio built above a two-stall carport. Described by Ansel Adams as an "authentic genius," Mills style, is an off-shoot of the Frank Lloyd Wright Taliesin West School. Along the Big Sur Coastline, in Carmel, and here on Madison Street, he used simple materials of aggregate concrete, redwood and glass to expand the light, function, and aesthetics of the home at the same time, preserving, not violating the environment. Mills considered the site influence so important that he called it his "Silent Client." A striking, human-like Buckeye tree watches over the residence while a majestic Redwood guards the front gate. The 1,841 square foot home also offers a detached workshop/storage/potting building of almost 600 square feet. You have a lot to see here, come visit.
