Erickson designed the 5,287-square-foot home in 1979, and construction began in the late 80s. 

Many of the furnishings in the home were Erickson-designed and then manufactured by Eppich’s company.

Describing it as his “most complete work”, the property includes a hot tub and a creek that was redirected to create a reflecting pool.
