I love seeing houses that architects design for themselves. This particular gem was designed by architect William Clay Grobe in 1973, and he has been the only owner until now. I couldn't find much info about Mr Grobe online, but the little I did made it seem like he did mostly commercial work, which is a shame, because I'd love to see more homes like this one. I love the long roof overhangs and how well the wood siding and cement block has aged, almost matching each other in color. And that 1/4 acre lot. Swoon. The house does need a bit of updating, but it is a perfect location and perfect start to a very nice new home.
