Here's a Modern Marvel in Auburn (Auburn?) For $2.8M

New, 3 comments


Is that a a hot tub in a swimming pool beside another pool? Applause for the architect who designed a house that continues to look modern even though it was built in 1980. They added a nest element like the pools and made it fit the style of this 5 bedroom, 6.5 bath, modern mansion estate in Auburn. Everything wraps around the pool, providing a view from the inside, and privacy from the outside. The color scheme is shades of grey with accents of blue, maintaining the modern look even in the kitchen where everything is angular except the range hood. The master suite has floor-to-ceiling cosmetic lighting and mirrors to match; as well as tiny closet behind sliding doors that looks like something out of a sci-fi movie. A pocket sauna, perhaps? With 10,450 square foot to work with, there's plenty of room for a library tall enough to require a ladder, a tiered theater, space for a gym, and a wine cellar large enough to satisfy aficionados who buy in quality and quantity. They're asking $2,795,000, which also includes 11.9 acres with a tennis court, pasture, gardens, fruit trees, and a greenhouse - and probably lots of room left over. An American football field is only 1.3 acres. See how far you could toss a pass or kick a field goal.
