An architectural masterpiece: Albert Frey’s Guthrie House built in 1935 located in El Mirador is now being offered after a complete restoration and modernization by Avi Ross Group. ”Simple” and ”Pure” best describe Frey’s work. He was the master of understatement, eliminating the insignificant, and in doing so, foreseeing the minimalist movement by decades. The re-envisioning of the home was no small task. It took extensive understanding and research into the original layout of the home. Discussions with Frey experts began the process, which included months of peeling back the decades of well-intentioned renovations to uncover much of the original Frey and the modern ”boxes” dropped in the desert to emerge. The re-envisioning brings the Guthrie House up to today’s standards, while maintaining many of Frey’s original details. This livable work of art includes 3 well-conceived bedrooms, two and a half bathrooms, a detached studio, and Cabana. Interiors consist of beautifully polished concrete floors, large windows throughout that allows abundant amounts of light and pool designed as a natural pond and panoramic mountain views. A true architectural gem.
