Mr. Hayes Builds His Dream House (Aug, 1953)
A few years ago I posted a much longer article about this amazing house. Among its rather unique features is an underwater tunnel connecting the outdoor pool to the one inside. This was designed to double as a method of decontamination in case of a nuclear war, but seems more like a gimmick. If anyone knows if this house is still standing, please do tell.
Mr. Hayes Builds His Dream House
HAL B. HAYES, Los Angeles bachelor, pulled out all the stops when he built his home on a hill in Beverly Hills. A designer and contractor by profession, he has always liked to entertain in a fanciful setting. This time, with a “little” imagination, he has realized his greatest dream much to his guests’ delight.
