Killingsworth’s Spaulding House in California for Sale



The Spaulding House is a 2,194-sqft (204-sqm) residence, built in 1965 by renowned Case Study architect, Edward Killingsworth. Situated on a spacious lot of 18,513ft² (1,720m²) at 143 Calvert Ct, Piedmont, California, USA, the mid-century modern home now is on the market for $2,995,000.

Killingsworth’s Spaulding home is a flawless expression of the ideals of the famed Case Study Program, the experimental post-war project to redefine domestic architecture that included not only Killingsworth, but also Charles and Ray Eames, Richard Neutra, Raphael Soriano, and many other names synonymous with 20 century American design.

Built at the same time as his Case Study projects, the Spaulding House is the only home that Killingsworth built outside of Southern California. The house features the exquisite details that define his singular contribution the Case Study program, including long, attenuated structural elements, 10 feet ceilings, walls of glass, an exterior arcade, and extensive architect-designed cabinetry and built-ins, all within a floor plan that is uniquely livable. The attention to both form and function, from the engineering of the home’s infrastructure to the precise lines of its cabinets, is exceptional. As the famed photographer of architecture Julius Shulman said of Killingsworth, “His homes are the best and most elegant of anyone’s”. The Spaulding House is that and more, an architectural wonder, a flowing, inviting space that envelopes you in the park-like landscape and panoramic vista just beyond its windows.
