    Great find Kelly, one of the best MCM that i have ever seen on here. I truly hope that no one gets this and paints any of that woodwork. The wood, stone and slate all combine to make this house feel so natural. That great room with fireplace would be hard to ever leave.

    Love it. Can’t tell if the floor in the living room is original. The size and shape of the tiles is a bit contemporary. Still…a wonderful house.

      Personal opinion says it has been changed. Look where it joins the random stone in pic 11. Very awkward transition.

        I would also guess the tile is newer, but the transition looks more awkward in the photo because there’s a couple steps in between the tile and stone. It’s hard to see, but the description does say sunken living room. It’s not a bad choice in tile in the living room, but stone would be better. I would have to change out the newer bathroom tile and vanities, but otherwise this house is perfect. In PA you could grow green screens pretty fast if you were concerned about privacy and the windows. And there is an empty and neglected pool to deal with. This is a neat little pocket of moderns and this one looks like the nicest.

      That rectangular tile looks new to me too Steven. Surely originally had the same great flags as elsewhere: maybe concrete; (?). VERY nice mod..

      Concrete floors are great in AZ; but PA? Radiant floor heat would make it do-able.

      Nice job on the kitchen.

        Maybe they put a radiant heat floor system under these newer tiles?

        Agree with you Rosewater. I think cement might have been the original floor, those rectangle tiles look very modern–not ‘Mod’. Let’s hope they had the foresight to put in the underfloor heat. I like the flags too.

    I don’t like MCMs, but this house is a beauty! Wow, even I could live in this one. Love it, everything about it. Is that a wine rack in PHoto 18? I don’t get that built-in. No pulls on the drawers. Puzzling me. Great house, though. Can’t get over how light and bright and beautiful it is.

    Love the tub!

  7. AvatarIngajane says: 25 comments

    I adore this house! Hot cup of tea with a fire and a good book. It really captures the spirit of MCM. Just add some lovely Danish modern And we are good. Astunner for sure.

    It’s interesting that houses of this era are now becoming “Old” Houses.
    This is a perfect example of Frank Lloyd Wright’s Usonian idea of indoor and outdoor merging. It’s also got a commercial building flavor – which I adore.
    I’m suspicious that the shower tile is not original.
    Very interesting home. I’m glad to see it posted.

    This house is a sublime MCM. Even with absolutely no decoration/furnishings, it stands alone in quiet compatibility of materials. The upgrades…appliances, etc. make no intrusion on the original design intent. I applaud the owners.

    Look at all the different floor materials. So love the living room & kitchen floors. Amazing open spaces. Love this one!!

    I love it but not the wood….well not all of it.

  14. AvatarCindy Harris says: 1 comments

    Gah love the window, the wood, the space……

  15. AvatarJames Dunbar says: 2 comments

    Not a fan of floor to ceiling windows but I do like it. sortof. Love Frank Lloyd Wright as an architect. Had to look up what another commenter mentioned by the term Usonian. Now I see what they meant. Like some aspects of this while some stimulate my anxiety of being too open. Still I do like the feel of somethings, like the way it looks like a park like setting as a professional building or museum or library would. Straight, clean 90 degree angled lines. …..

    Love everything about this house. The updates are in line with the original esthetic. A real beauty! I could definitely see myself there.

  18. AvatarPamela Klocek says: 12 comments

    Usually not a fan of MCM but this is wonderful.

    That being said- it would be better if it were not a glass house along the freeway or so close to neighbors.. Better suited on a private acreage maybe?

    MCM is not a favorite of mine, but this one I could get used to pretty quickly! LOVE all the floor to ceiling windows and hope they are at least double paned. Have a great fire going, a nice comfy chair and a table at the window to do puzzles or read a book. I imagined all sorts of lovely landscaping going on as I gazed through my windows.Some lovely shrubs against the fencing, flowers and trees would make this property.

    Not crazy about the bathroom, but the bigger worry is always the flat roof.

    I’m not a fan of MCM homes, but this one is wonderful. I’d live here in a heartbeat. Beautiful natural feel to this home.

    Showing off market, I assume it received an offer. That’s how fast they sometimes go. 🙂

    Great house and I don’t typically fall for Mid Century homes, but I love this. I hope nobody ruins what remains of the original design. Great find. I like seeing these. I’m becoming partial to the great designs from the 1950’s and early 1960’s.

    Before discovering this delightful group I never really gave Mid century homes a second thought. I am now a convert.

      Sue, that supports one of the most important tenets of historic preservation ….education. Nice to hear it from you. 👍
