Gerard Barbutt looked at this house for about two minutes before thinking, “I should put in an offer.” He says, “I was impressed with its economy of scale, and I wanted to live there. So I wrote a letter to the owner telling her that I loved the house and that I would respect its integrity.” The letter worked, and in 1999 he bought the house from the original owner, Shirley Todd. 

The story of how the home came to be adds to its charm. In the 1950s, 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.
