It's easy to see why this four-bedroom contemporary was featured in House Beautiful: a designer or architect has taken what was probably an 80s dud and made it light, bright, and attractive. This demonstrates that these houses work when furniture is chosen that complements the architecture rather than fights against it (as very trad furnishings do). The only quibbles we have are the overly dark kitchen and the bedroom four-posters, which in one case are too large for the room. This property, which includes the 4000sf house, pool, spa and 1.9 acres of land, represents good value at $1.95M.
