If you’d like to see some pictures of a truly beautiful home, take a gander at the pictures in this gallery. That’s the Anthony-Kerry home in Beverly Hills, it’s up for sale, and it can be yours for a measly $9 million.
As those of you who are aficionados of this sort of thing may recognize, it’s a Green and Green home. Greene and Greene were a pair of brothers who were architects and building contractors back at the turn of the last century. The most prominent G&G home is probably the Gamble House in Pasadena. The Gamble House is now jointly owned by the University of Southern California and the City of Pasadena and it’s open to the public. It was used for the exteriors of Doc’s house in Back to the Future.
It’s not just the design of this house that’s beautiful but the materials and the remarkably fine craftsmanship, something for which the Greene brothers were noted. A Frank Lloyd Wright house may have a gorgeous design but if you’ve ever been in one you’ll acknowledge that it’s obvious that the attention to craftsmanship can’t hold a candle to a Greene and Greene home.
