This phenomenal 1965 midcentury modern design by Aaron Green, protege and colleague of Mr. Frank Lloyd Wright, is to rival all other constructions throughout the Northern Californian coastal communities. Stretching over 4,166 square feet of interior space in Soquel, California, this grand estate enjoys breathtaking views of the surrounding hillsides and valleys.
The Aaron Green House was listed for sale with a price tag of $3.99 million in the spring of 2018. Green’s midcentury estate has changed ownership under private sales in the past, however, this is the first time the house was listed on the market.
Upon entrance, visitors are met with a delicate free form saltwater pool that is surrounded by flagstone of polished brown tones. Shrubs surround the pool area, which is kept private via wooden fencing on all sides.
Inside and out, this iconic design offers timeless style and utmost comfort. The outside area includes tables and chairs for lounging with friends and family, accent lighting as well as private tennis courts and a one-hole golf course.
Inside, the living room features an entire wall of sandstone masonry with an embedded fireplace. On the opposite side, a wall of glass opens views over the stunning hillsides.
The materials used throughout the home include a collection of dark woods; redwood, mahogany as well as teak adorn the interior spaces.
Rumor has it that Green ordered 650 tons of sandstone for construction of this house. Much of the flooring is made of stone, although some parts are made of bamboo. Where there is bamboo floor inside, a complementary japanese garden with a koi pond exist outside.
Thanks to a balanced sense of peace and quiet mixed with absolute luxury, this house is perfect for a weekend away with family or friends. In addition to the pool, tennis courts and wood burning fireplace, this midcentury gem is equipped with a comfortable, open plan kitchen with a built in barbeque as well as a sauna for ultimate relaxation.
The house accommodates a total of five bedrooms and three and a half baths. The total lot size adds up to 11.2 acres.
