A note from the seller about the architect, Bud Evenson

Bud Evenson may not be a household name, but his reputation as a highly skilled architect is undeniable. He is particularly noted for his exemplary residential hillside projects that beautifully showcase the possibilities of Mid-Century Modern architecture mostly in coastal settings. 

The design of the 523 Miner Road primarily embodies the principles of Mid-Century Modern architecture, while also drawing from other influential styles. Mid-Century Modern but at its roots lie in the International Style, characterized by bold geometric shapes, sleek wall surfaces, extensive use of glass, seamless integration of indoor and outdoor spaces, and minimal ornamentation.

Evenson's design for 523 Miner Road House faithfully adheres to these principles. It showcases clear expressions of structure and employs simple yet elegant materials. The incorporation of expansive glass elements floods the interior spaces with natural light and seamlessly connects the indoors with the surrounding landscape. Additionally, the open floor plan enhances the sense of space and fluidity within the home, echoing the hallmark features of Mid-Century Modern design
