A wall of dramatic concrete screen block beckons the tour goer to both an architectural delight and inspiring preservation story: the home (and character-defining roofline) was unsympathetically renovated in the 1990s obscuring the folded plate feature on both the exterior and interior. Fortunately, the current owners engaged talented local architect Stan Boles, FAIA, to renovate the home, restoring it to its previous glory.
