In the 1950s, original owner Shirley Todd asked architect Henry Hill if he could build her a house for $11,000. Hill was up for the challenge, and all together, the house, the lot and the landscaping came in at just under $11,000 when it was built in 1956. The original drawings and some photos of the house, which appeared in a Sunset magazine story in 1959, plus photos of how it looks today, create a timeline showing the architectural inspiration, the original home and its modern-day style.The timeless design and landscaping feel just as fresh today as they did in 1956. The previous owner did not have a car, so there was no need for a driveway or garage. Instead, the front landscaping consists of varieties of manzanitas, inspired by the environment on the upper slopes of Mount Tamalpais and the High Sierra.Watch now: See more of this hillside home on Houzz TV
