    Major points for the original kitchen and I believe original windows.

    Just a request, keep it about the architecture/history of the home or area.

    Wow cool Art Deco house. These are a rare treat.
    I also agree that this looks like the original Art Deco kitchen.

    Very unusual, special little place. My lunch break is gonna be spent thinking how best to integrate that white sided addition.

      The good news is that the window shapes of the addition are consistent with the original house. For a quick fix, painting the sided addition the same color as the original house would go a long way to harmonizing the two exteriors.

      That addition already has matching (or close enough to pass muster) steel casement windows, and the scale/massing isn’t bad. Honestly, just painting it a color more sympathetic with the rest of the house would go a long way as a relatively quick fix. If it were mine, I’d use color to break up/accentuate the cubism of the intersecting masses, and in doing so would visually integrate the additions with the original house by way of a sort of dazzle-camouflage.

    Not only are these exceedingly rare, it is even rarer to find anything left intact inside. After the Moderne phase passed, most owners couldn’t get to tearing out all of the delicious Deco details fast enough. Here’s one from my hometown:

    How futuristic this house must have seemed in this small town in 1935! Thanks for the post and to Sharon and Kelly for the additional examples. I wish more people had even a little bit of interest in historical preservation in these modernistics. The interiors were designed very intentionally and it would not be difficult to retain or restore some of the original details. Difficult to do in the Wisconsin one. You would have to re-create everything.

      I love this. I think once it’s emptied out it should be relisted. The kitchen is great.

    three stories? so many questions? what do the stairs look like and the top floor must be great.

  9. AvatarClund says: 146 comments

    Wow! I’m always happy to spy a house like this even in passing. Modernistic styles stand out probably because you just don’t see many. This is so cute! Love the kitchen! The sink is killer!

    I’m impressed by the original bathroom floor! Looks to be marblized rubber (or perhaps lino), with that sweet black Deco/Moderne outline. Betting the kitchen floor was similar.

    Fell in love with that kitchen sink! As I looked at those great windows it set my mind to wandering about how to keep them but make them more energy efficient. I haven’t been to Chilton in a very long time, but it was a very cute, clean community.
