House of the Day: Throw No Stones at This Glass House
Glass houses have that wonderful indoor-outdoor feel, eliminate the need for artwork on the walls, and of course have sent many a window-washer's child to college. And while stone-throwing must certainly be discouraged, this new listing in Manhattan Beach, Calif., -- a beach community of greater Los Angeles -- caught our eye as more than just your run-of-the-mill glass box by the sea.
Listed for sale at $3.6 million, the 3,643-square-foot contemporary home has three bedrooms and four bathrooms. Perched on a corner lot, the home has become something of a local landmark.
There are custom steel truss beams supporting the vaulted ceilings and open-floor-plan interiors. The home has U-shaped living spaces above a walled and sheltered interior courtyard.
The photos, perhaps not doing it justice, are something of a Rorschach test. Does it look like a greenhouse to you? An airport hangar? Two gun barrels poised to run miscreants out of town -- especially those who fail to appreciate its beauty?
