625 Hobart Street

Designed by the late modernist architect John Thodos and built on a wooded Menlo Park lot seven years ago, the award-winning “House of Light” at 625 Hobart Street hit the market early last year priced at $8.5 million or roughly $1,690 per square foot.

Reduced to $6.8 million at the end of last year, a price at which it was re-listed as new this past March, the list price for the concrete and steel frame home, which features walls and ceilings of structural glass and is finished in cedar, with Tasmanian oak flooring and African Afromosia wood cabinetry inside, has just been reduced to $5.8 million with an interim cut to $6.25 million in August.
