Ed was not a very good driver. But, what he lacked in driving skills, he more than made up for in design skills. The carport he dreamt up for this home is utterly spectacular. Very few architects are able to take full control of their works; Ed’s clients, however, consummately trusted his vision, and they let him take them to the world of his imagination. So, each Ed Dreier home is a piece of art. His homes are living sculptures, and if you’re one of the lucky ones, you’ll get the chance to live in one. Much like the glass homes made famous by iconic architects Ludwig Mies van der Rohe and Philip Johnson, this skin and bones architecture with its steel structure and glass enclosures creates fluid space. The floor-to-ceiling glass walls allow the outdoor greenery itself to become the visual boundary of the interior space. The elegant tulip carport invokes Eero Saarinen, who solved the dilemma of unsightly chair and table legs by creating the furniture series for Knoll. This is arguably one of the finest homes Ed ever designed. You approach the home with a sense of peace, knowing that every little architectural detail has been perfectly sited. Even the curvature of the stairs leaves you with a sense of floating down each step. Just enough updates have been made to the home to make it relevant for today’s living, while still maintaining the full integrity of Ed’s vision. This is truly a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to get into a space this special. This home is elegant beyond its time. This is not mid-century, this is timeless.
