7 Responses to “Abandoned Glass House”

  1. Ruth Nederlk says:

    Strange never heard about this Never saw anything in newspaper!Wonder whats behind the story about it?

  2. c says:

    The “glass house” was designed by CJS Architects. There were some craftsmanship flaws with the construction, legal battles ensued. The owners ran out of money to complete the project.
    Sad story, especially seeing that it’s now so badly vandalized.

  3. Brion says:

    Reminds me of the glass house from the movie The Lake House

  4. E says:

    Great post…hate seeing people posting the exact address and how to get onto the property. Being a homeowner in Egypt Hills, it’s nice knowing that people would like to keep this quiet neighborhood private, many of us live in the Hills to get away from everyday life. It’s great seeing pictures of such an odd, one of a kind structure, but sad to see untrue stories, and people breaking the glass for no reason at all. Let beauty be beautiful.

  5. S says:

    Visited back in August. We took a quick look at the older house without a problem. When we climbed the hill toward the glass house, we came upon a group of people chatting in front of their cars. We were told to “get out, it says no trespassing” by an angry old man who claimed to own the “house” he then proceeded to chase us down with his car, photograph our license plate, then hurled insults as he threatened to call the police. Not sure what’s going on here anymore, or why a crazy old man claimed to own this abandoned house 11 years after it was abandoned…..

  6. Liz says:

    Dear S-
    Did you ever stop to consider that the property is still owned by someone even if the building has stopped? The “NO TRESSASSING” signs are there for a reason. The “crazy old man” you encountered had every right to ask you to leave. Don’t trespass on other people’s property and you won’t have to deal with the consequences. BTW- the version I heard says you flung the insults first and they were quite vulgar.

  7. REED A BRODSKY says:

    Well i visited thw site one last year and as a college student now many people of my age honestly visit the site all the time. The house before it is honestly one of the coolest houses I’ve been in and the creepiest one at that.
