It's not every day (or any day, really) that we feature nudity on Curbed SF. But when a tipster pointed us in the direction of the listing for 15781 Hidden Hill Road in Los Gatos, we spotted our chance. The bold, blocky forms of the 6,500-square-foot manse are anything but shy (and the $7.588 million price tag isn't retiring either). But the listing photos are, uh, cheeky.
The one we are referencing is a pool shot where a model (we assume) stands naked at the edge of the pool, with her bare backside facing the camera, while a shirtless man gazes at her from the floor-to-ceiling glass doors.
We've seen some interesting model poses, but this one takes the cake. In the Bay Area, models are generally reserved for the most high-end homes, and sometimes their use can be unintentionally laughable—but this is the first one we've seen that some would consider lascivious.
The models are generally used to warm up a home or tell a story. In this case, we see a woman entering the modernist manse in a white dress. In the next few frames, she appears again poolside wearing a very modest bathing suit, before shedding it all midway through the listing photos (if you are having trouble spotting it, click the first image to enlarge).
Really, the place doesn't need to resort to nudity to catch our attention (not that it didn't work). It's by architect Curt Cline of Modern House, and it presents as large squares of wood, metal, and concrete that weave together and are interrupted by tremendous walls of glass. Then, of course, there's the aforementioned pool, a spa, and a fire pit that's worthy of a resort.
The listing suggests the three bedrooms off the courtyard would be "ideal for children's quarters." Maybe so, but perhaps they should cover their eyes.
