With an earlier post discussing Frank Lloyd Wright Inspired home, this house appears to have direct connections to the man and the architectural school. According to the original owners children, this house in California was designed by one of his students. This was a 1962 wedding present to the parents of the current owner. How would you like to get a gift of a new modern designed house, that looked like nothing else you have ever seen? What a wedding present! This home can be viewed on Zillow is at 120 Canal Dr, Chowchilla, CA 93610.
Front Entrance to 120 Canal Drive
You will notice in many of the pictures, it almost looks like some of the wood was damaged by water somehow. Not just like moisture but water. Perhaps a good cleaning outside with something like 30 seconds cleaner washing down all of the exterior and maybe interior too (that might be too harsh) would bring everything back to “normal” somewhat. I have seen where this cleaner does an amazing job for situations like this. Note if you have this type of need, make sure to cover sensitive plants and soil.

It appears that in many of the rooms again (lower section of the wood) is somewhat damaged. I noticed too the cinder block walls seems to have water marks. I really hope someone is able to go in and save this house. What a great opportunity.
