Property Description

Built in 1978 this one-of-a-kind, architecturally magical masterpiece is exquisite from head to tail - literally! ''The Whale House'', designed by Michael Carmichael, is a whimsical expression of artistry set amongst peaceful oak and sycamore trees and seasonal Mission Creek. The waving cedar shingled exterior gives the home a homogeneous skin to blend in with the natural surroundings. An artistic home calls for a unique entrance. Step through the whale's mouth and let the imaginative lifestyle begin. Three floors of creative genius encompass the head of the whale. Features include a spiraling stairwell open to the fresh outdoors, rock-covered elevator shaft, 270 Belgian leaded and stained glass windows to take in the tranquil 360 degree
