This home I recently listed created such a buzz in the realtor community it drew 70 brokers to the professional open house. What's so special? Rarely do we see a midcentury in such pristine condition. And not pristine condition of a home that wasn't so hot to begin with- we've all seen those. This home was obviously custom built with high end materials, sited beautifully on a .38 acre lot in a great neighborhood.
So many features were marveled over on the tour- the honeycombed glass on either side of the main doorway is not only beautiful, but functional. The glass panels swing out to allow fresh air in- and then hidden screens pull down over the space. The living room fireplace is a graceful curve of wood. Beyond the fireplace is a floor to ceiling window that takes in the sunny level backyard. The kitchen is completely original with it's white masonite walls trimmed in metal. Most cabinet doors are rounded. A rounded built in cabinet repeats the shape above in glass display shelves. Beyond that is a restaurant style booth with an industrial glass table top and a stainless riveted base right of of a rocket ship. The booth is surrounded by a wraparound window.
Two of the four baths are pristine masonite with glass block windows- the colors are neutral- not the burgundys and aqua blues one might expect in a vintage bath.
The house is currently decorated with a vintage eye, but the home could go Dwell very easily for a super sleek mid century modern look.
