I have watched this property come and go on the market. I always thought it was rad, but questioned whether it is really a Haver. I've driven by it like 10 times, but have never been inside. There are like maybe 3 other houses like it within a couple streets, if I recall correctly. The subdivision is called Pickwick Acres. Pickwick Acres is right next to Hidden Village (Allied houses).

Thoughts?

Eh, It doesn't really have that "feel" inside but its hard to tell from the photos. Would have to see more detailed photos of the outside to really judge.

Kitchen & dinning room look like a Haver to me...

However, for $800K+ I would rather buy the Danley's house & have money left over for fun stuff :D

if you buy shawn and tiffany's place you would be hard pressed to think of a couple hundred k of stuff to do to it.

Dwell magazine Jan/Feb 2004 has a photo of a renovated house in Los Angeles remodeled by Marmol-Radziner. The house, part of a group of houses, was originally designed by A. Quincy Jones Architect. That house looks, from the front, exactly like the "Haver" house that I live in on Rose Lane. I have the original blueprints, left by the original owners, and Haver's name does not appear on them; rather the builder's name appears. Haver must have been inspired by that California architect.

I doubt that.

I recycled my old Dwell magazines, can you scan & post the article with pictures?

If the homes were designed & built before the 1950s anything is possible...

Marmol-Radziner

I'm unable to scan and post.
But go to http://www.marmol-radziner.com
Click the first arrow about construction & projects.
Scroll down to the Katzenstein Residence and click on the photo.
When I first saw the small photo in Dwell a few years back, I thought, 'Ah, that's my house!' It's not the same floor plan though.

Actually, Haver probably was influenced by California Architects. He went to School in Pasadena in the 30s before the war and his dad, a builder, was Californian. A friend of a friend of mine is looking into it to find out who taught there at at USC that time, and in what style.

Maybe these are early Havers?!

Ok...so I drive through neighborhoods all the time, and sometimes I remember to write down where I saw some interesting houses.

These houses are reminiscent of Haver's Camelback Park Estates in Scottsdale http://www.modernphoenix.net/camelpark1.htm and Del Webb's Campus Homes in Tempe http://www.modernphoenix.net/campushomes1.htm. Anyone see these as being Havers? They were built around 1951. There are traditional ranches sprinkled in this same neighborhood around 30th and Osborn, known as Mountain View Park.

I have driven by there many times and am convinced that they are the same Haver designs but want to take a closer look to be sure. Many of them have covered carports jutting out like in the picture you linked to.

It is a difficult street to stop on and photograph from! It looks like most of them face Osborn.
