Stunning Modern Design in Sacramento, CA - 3,200sq ft. ($1,300,000)
Carter Sparks is one of the most under-appreciated mid century modern architects and this 1970 house designed by him is a classic. True indoor/outdoor living with window walls that blur that boundary. Landscaping is gorgeous and the post and beam structure combined with level changes and skylights is a treat.
