In the next blog post, I mention Case Study House #23A in La Jolla, which was granted national historic designation in July, 2013.
Here is some background from wiki:
The Case Study Houses were experiments in American residential architecture sponsored by Arts & Architecture magazine, which commissioned major architects of the day to design and build inexpensive and efficient model homes for the United States residential housing boom caused by the end of World War II and the return of millions of soldiers.
The program ran intermittently from 1945 until 1966. The first six houses were built by 1948 and attracted more than 350,000 visitors. While not all 36 designs were built, most of those that were constructed were built in Los Angeles, and one was built in San Rafael, Northern California and one in Phoenix, Arizona.
A number of the houses appeared in the magazine in iconic black-and-white photographs by architectural photographer Julius Shulman.
A review of the three houses built on Rue de Anne:
Rich is seeing it like we are – pricing has been fairly flat lately.

Yesterday, I whipped into the City of Carlsbad maintenance yard where they have all the realtor open-house signs locked up. They have been diligent in their enforcement efforts!
When the city first threatened to do something, we realtors didn’t take it seriously and failed to get out in front of it.
As a result, the city imposed a rule that requires our open house signs to be inside of the right-of-way, which is tough around Olde Carlsbad where there are no sidewalks and in many cases, no place to put signs that are ten feet from the street.
Not only are they collecting the signs every weekend now, but their driver has an attitude too, especially when he is on patrol with his girlfriend – which has to be against city policy for her to be riding along.
I asked about political signs.
They explained that those have a ‘special’ permit so they can be put anywhere. Politicians give themselves special treatment!
