Built in 1978 this one-of-a-kind, architecturally magical masterpiece is exquisite from head to tail - literally! ''The Whale House'', designed by Michael Carmichael, is a whimsical expression of artistry set amongst peaceful oak and sycamore trees and seasonal Mission Creek. The waving cedar shingled exterior gives the home a homogeneous skin to blend in with the natural surroundings. An artistic home calls for a unique entrance. Step through the whale's mouth and let the imaginative lifestyle begin. Three floors of creative genius encompass the head of the whale. Features include a spiraling stairwell open to the fresh outdoors, rock-covered elevator shaft, 270 Belgian leaded and stained glass windows to take in the tranquil 360 degree views, undulating walls of Venetian plaster, massive wood columns and beams. The belly of the whale is a relaxing interior courtyard with serene bamboo-lined outdoor shower, room to entertain and marvel guests, and a 75-foot glistening lap pool that flows into the grotto of the whale's tail. Rounding out this mind-blowing home is the guest house. Be the talk of the town and occupy "The Whale House" as your primary residence or add it to your real estate portfolio as an iconic trophy. And this is the tale of the whale!
