Architect William Weber, in collaboration with Modernism master George Matsumoto, designed this house as his personal residence. The dramatic, split-level house features the clean straight lines, affordable materials, walls of windows, open floor plan, and careful site planning and building integration that characterize Matsumoto's brand of architecture. The house, located in the Country Club Hills neighborhood, was built during the postwar period of rapid economic expansion that was dominated by the development of suburban neighborhoods in Raleigh. In 1954 the house was featured in Architectural Record. Private residence.
