Hi Dee - If you're interested in buying this property, search out a local architect that can provide you ideas based on your preferences. We provide that type of service for a small fee and it can be helpful advice when making decisions. BTW, love your profile picture! Best - HM

Wow ... That exterior... Ugh. As for this house being mcm or modern? It does not qualify as either IMO. Original poster was most accurate with double wide description.
It definitely needs the hand of a skilled architect.

Even with just paint, you can emphasize the low lean lines yet break up the length with a change in paint color. It cuts the length of the house in a good proportion. The bright door is a classic modern touch.

The arch above the window and the oval in the door should be de-emphasized if possible, since they are more traditional touches.

If budget permits, the addition of natural wood instead of one of the painted colors, would be attractive.

The existing porch, railings and steps are functional, and should be painted the same color as the house, using concrete or metal paint as appropriate. At some point, a covering over the porch, following the roofline, would be attractive. Often these modern homes have a narrow pergola across doorway and extending along the house. See the pictures above.

Beautiful home, just needs to pull together one look. I see it as modern because more traditional homes usually have a different roof line - and that's expensive to change.

The numbers are offset from the wall with aluminum spacers giving them the floating look. They create nice shadows, too!

Thanks Lisa! Sapele was used to match wood used elsewhere.

Wow Great Place
Looks like the dining area is just beyond the island. You can see it in other shots of the house from this project.
What a gorgeous house!!

lmwright - The public spaces of the house are open to one another in this open plan. The Dining Space is tucked between the Kitchen (beyond the island) and the Family Space. All of these spaces open to the Lanai and are provided with views of the rear yard, Mission Bay and the foothills beyond.

Joanne - Thanks!
Cheers! - HM
