Every house has a story. What makes a house more interesting is not just its design, but the history of its conception, construction, and the years the homeowners lived in the house.

Agree that the story behind a house is there makes it even more beautiful? ?

I’m sure you will think so too. This is also the reason why many people would give up a home with a terrible or frightening history. So stories are really important.

Now we have something interesting to show.

This is called Edris House because it belongs to the married couple Marjorie and William Edris. The house was designed by E. Stewart Williams in 1954 and is still alive today. Williams is known as the pioneering modernist architect who designed and built Frank Sinatra’s house.

Yes, that’s right.

Since Williams was also working on Frank Sinatra’s house, the Edris- House famous. But that’s not all.

The Edris couple live next to Williams and his wife Mari. They lived in a duplex apartment designed by Williams. The four became good friends, and the Edris couple wanted a house in Little Tuscany. They gave Williams the freedom to design it without a budget in order to narrow his ideas down.

The result? A unique mid-century modern home.

But you know what’s more surprising? What you will see in this house today is exactly the same as it was when it was built in 1954. The new owner has consulted Williams about the restoration as there are areas of slight deterioration.
