A very unique house built in 1974, all the rooms opens to the interior courtyard with a pool. It is very dated so it needs some work, but everything in there seem to be state of the art at the time. Has alarm system, recessed-into-the-wall microwave, toaster, and can opener, commercial grade kitchen, but it has a lot of "weird" things the inspector cannot figure out, All rooms have a central vac opening, all rooms has a heat censor, some rooms have two intercom units? why? There are two secret safes built into the floor, but no one has combinations. There is a huge oil tank (yes oil not gas) in the back, the wall has a hidden compartment and when opened revealed radios, 8-track tape players and old vinyl record players, there is a switch labeled "RUG" which no one knows what it means, there is a pump underground which seems to indicate it pumps it's own sewer into the city sewer line, but why? Roof pitches inward to the courtyard but there is a gulley that drains underground to somewhere... a lot of strange things and the current owner is an elderly who had a stroke and cannot remember anything and is now staying at a nursing home.
I did hear from his daughter the house was built by an architect as his own home in 1974, and later sold to the current owner in 1985. City does not have any records before 1980, so how can i get original plans? Any architect database that may show information on the architect given the address? It is obviously a custom designed home.
