Recently I went to the Greystone Mansion in Beverly Hills for a lecture on Mid-20th Century Architecture. I Learned all about the top Architect to the stars Gerard Colcord. The homes he built were French style farmhouses. They were the luxury home of the century. It is said that Colcord homeowners are friendly, all about family, and love their homes. I was really surprised to find that my Dad, who is a contractor told me after the lecture is doing a remodeling project on a Colcord home.
