SOLD: Vintage Mid Century Modern Hillside Home Book with Plan Summaries

Book for sale from 1965 with many photos and floor plans for mid-century modern hillside homes.

The imprint, Sunset, and Sunset Magazine, were the West Coast’s guide to California living in the 1950s and 1960s, and this short book epitomized the forward-looking optimism of the period.

The brief descriptions and photos show off hillside house plans for modern homes on sloped lots with fantastic views, on steep hillsides, with walkout basements, with garages on top and living quarters below, and so forth.

These homes are found throughout the hilly and mountainous areas in the Rockies, to the coast, including well known neighborhoods like the Hollywood Hills.

The photos also show off some impressive staging with mid century modern furniture.

Several copies are on sale on Ebay. Here are all the links at this time:
