Aaron Green – Natural Beauty
Last week we listed a new property that is an Aaron Green design. To provide more insight on how truly special this property is it is best to learn more about the man behind the design.
Aaron Green was born in Mississippi in 1917 and at an early age he knew that architecture was his passion. Aaron Green was invited to be part of Frank Lloyd Wright’s apprentice group and became close friends as well as professional colleagues.
Like Wright, Green’s designs are known to be full of character and one with nature. He designed over 200 private residences, also designed public housing, civic buildings, like the Marin County Civic Center, office buildings, churches and more.

Organic is a popular word now, but Aaron Green really specialized in organic architecture. As you can see from photos of 999 N. Rodeo Gulch Road, this property is one with nature, and built in such a special way that this is more than a home, it’s a piece of art. Every stone is cut specifically for its location.
The home is based on a grid system that flows through the entire house, while if you just looked at it, doesn’t seem to have any constant lines…until you stand at the starting point of the grid. The colors are soft and natural. The windows and overall flow of the house make you forget when you go from outside to in, because from all angles you are greeted by so much natural beauty. The material is elegant, the storage is plentiful and the peace you feel on this property is unlike any other.
Outside there is a beautiful pool that is an oasis and on the other side of the property a tranquil koi pond. For the last 40 years this property has been owned by one family, it is now time for a new family to enjoy this property and all that it has to offer. Let this be your place to relax, unwind, and appreciate the beauty of this world.
