The front looks more like a school or something than a house.
Zillow used to have better (more recent?) pics of the interior of the house on Kinross but I think they got removed last time it sold and it somehow reverted to some of the older pics instead of having no pictures at all. And I actually really did the toy vehicle collection.
Actually, those are even newer pictures that I put up on https://www.zillow.com/homes/18050-Kinross-Ave-Beverly-Hills,-MI,-48025_rb/24584115_zpid The old pictures, from when we bought the house 4 years ago, are still up at https://www.trulia.com/p/mi/beverly-hills/18050-kinross-ave-beverly-hills-mi-48025--2325178315 I guess they're "better" in an early-90's ArtVan/Ikea stage-rental-furniture sense, but I like our crazy modern style better and am not into Facebook that much so Zillow is my only social media outlet. It gave me a warm-fuzzy to know that people notice the constantly updating Zillow non-listing ;-].
A designated Los Angeles Historic-Cultural Monument, the 1948 house was designed by architects A. Quincy Jones and Whitney R. Smith. Escher Gune Wardena was the architecture firm of record for the restoration. Landscape by Native Sanctuary and Tivoli Landscape Design.
I was out running yesterday and ran past a gorgeous house I've run past hundreds of times before. It's hard to see from the road but from what I can tell it always looked like a gorgeous MCM home. I've never seen a for sale sign or anything but I was looking something up on Zillow this morning and decided to click on this particular house to see when it was built. It turns out the house was on the market back in '10 and '11 and the pictures and listing are still online!

The house was built in 1955 and it turns out that it was built by Minoru Yamasaki. The photos don't do the exterior landscaping justice but the interior looks pretty nice too. At more than 5,000 sqft, I think this is definitely on the larger end of the typical MCM spectrum but it's actually one of the smaller houses in that particular neighborhood. The house is about a block away from the grounds of the Cranbrook Academy which is a mecca of MCM design.
When I pulled up Zillow to look for photos of the above house, this house popped up as a new nearby listing in my area:

The listing says it was built in 1951 and mentions that it's built in the shape of a "Z" with the bedrooms in one leg of the Z and the living area in the other. Sounds cool and like a perfect reason to use a drone to get an aerial shot but no dice. Oh well... Google maps gives the gist:

The interior shots look pretty nice to me...

Since the Yamasaki house is a) out of my price range, and b) sold, maybe I can convince my wife that we need this one instead?
Glass houses with flat roofs in a snowy climate are.....wrong. Sorry.

When I moved for the job I had now, this house was available for rent. It was too small for me and my dogs, so I passed.
