Incredible hidden jewel in Thunderbord Heights..Japanese modern or contempo, this hoome could be brought up to todays standards, acre lot, major potential!

The Tompkins Residence, c. 1960, Thorton Ladd & John Kelsey (Ladd & Thorton) AIA. First offering since 1976. Classic mid-century design infused with Japanese Modern influence. Two pavilions sited around the lotus blossom shaped pool. Both pavilions are encircled by a series of moveable screens which incorporate both translucent and solid panels, allowing for various options for transparency, privacy and ventilation—a brilliant modernist interpretation of the shoji-panel design. The movable screen system are replicated inside the residence. The original design from landscape to floor plan, from cabinet to hardware, appears to be original, creating a unique time capsule view of a stunningly cohesive vision by the architects. The orientation allows for domineering mountain views and privacy. This jewel is a symphony of design, style and chicness providing a harmonious living space. Given that this is a recently discovered architectural trophy, expect multiple offers.
