2245 9th Avenue
How many homes can boast “electric retractable sunroofs?” As far as we’re concerned, not nearly enough (global warming and all). In fact, off the top of our heads we can only think of one other. And that one was a bit more modern modern (and to our tastes).

    ha ha – funniest title all week !
    Looks like the photographer has helped visualize the pool of water by applying the ubiquitous “blue glare” effect on the linoleum floor.
    Actually I would hope that the electric roof has a manual crank as a backup (like they do on airplane landing gear !)
    If you don’t like the Brady Bunch look, figure in at least 50K for a superficial remodel.

    It’s a great idea. It will stay closed and warm for 300 days a year half of which are sunny/windy/chilly. And 2 months of random SoCal weather like today where you can get a nice tan.!

    Dreamy when its open – Nightmare when it is not!

    I know of one house with a retractable roof in Sea Cliff, right on the water.

    Actually I know the owner of this house and she has maintained that retractable roof over the years-it is a really nice feature of the house and works beautifully. BTW, the pictures do not do justice to the house-it is a lovely home.

    This was probably a really cool place to live in the 70s.

    This guy obviously does not want to pay property taxes on the assessed value of a few extra square feet of indoor space.
