"Flamingo" House - Escondido, CA, USA

This post-war modern ranch style house was built in 1948.  It is situated within the Old Escondido Historic District.  The story, as I understand it, is that the homeowners applied to the Historic District for approval to use the paint colors of turquoise and pink.  The Historic District approved as those colors were appropriate to the time period as interior colors.  Surprise.

Located at 630 South Broadway.
