Date of final plans: 1968

Status: standing as built

In 1959, Ted Riback and his partner Sam Hashman began building the Bel-Aire neighbourhood. While Hashman built himself a house in Bel-Aire in 1960, Riback waited until 1968 and acquired one of the last available lots for his house. By this time, his daughter Faith also was living in Bel-Air with her husband Norm Green.

Allegedly, the design was based off a house in California he and his wife had seen and liked. The square house features a pavillion-style roof (otherwise known as a Pizza Hut roof) and white horizontal stone cladding.

In the 1970s, the Ribacks commissioned another much more famous house, this time in Rancho Mirage, by the architect William F. Cody.
