Committed to exposed concrete, even in the closet. AND LOOK AT THIS CARPET!

I see the entire universe in this carpet.

You could lose a dead circus clown in that carpet.

I can appreciate the dedication to craftsmanship in that 3/4 inch strip of vertical wood boards above the closets.

Great post, Donna. But maybe space out the pics over a few hours? All those colors at once are making me a little nauseous.

It's a lot to take in.

I don't hate that squared spiral stair, I gotta say. (But yes, please take a match to that carpet.)

from the realtor site: 

You're traveling through another dimension, into a home of design, a dimension not only of sight and sound but of mind. A journey into a wondrous home whose boundaries are that of imagination. That's the signpost up ahead—your next stop, the Sherbondy Zone. Distinctive, one of a kind home designed in 1975 by renowned architect James Sherbondy as the family’s personal residence. The home offers a way of life featuring architectural flair, soaring ceilings and designed utility in every square foot. Privacy and serenity abound, tucked in Concordia Woods on a .66 acre wooded lot that is a nature lover’s paradise.

It's another dimension, that's for sure.

"...designed in 1975."   Apparently, good taste wasn't invented until 1976.

"renowned" is certainly a word for it.

But it was designed by an architect? How can we say it's bad?

I also match my sinks with my toilet seats. Who knew I was so edgy. (Spoiler, my sink are white).

^ But, in the middle of the night, or after too many pints... you do know which is which, right?

Citizen, in that case, the sink has move cleanable surface for the resulting innaccuracies.

They stayed married for 50 years. Was she tolerant or did they both just love carpet?

Hunch: the house was a '70s one-off by the architect finally getting to do what he wanted for his own residence.  The concrete, the angular forms and fenestration, that stair-- and the more affordable casework and simple interior wall finishes.  Not great, but far from the worst we've seen.

Later came the color-blind relative out to 'refresh' things with new flooring and countertops in a palette inspired by Saturday morning cartoons.  (I'll bet you can actually hear those carpet and formica colors as you come up the driveway.)  But the shell house has a quirky, cockeyed integrity to it.

If the final build had a 1/10 of the quality of those drawings... we'd certainly would have a different discussion. Nothing like tossing your finishes sample drawer into a blender and calling it finished.

That 3D carpet reminds me of a scene with Mr. Pitt:
