This house is an absolute classic. Built in 1958 on almost three acres, it has all the best loved mid-century modern hallmarks: walls of windows, indoor stonework, fireplaces to warm up all those sleek surfaces. As with the best renovations of MCM homes, the changes here have been largely practical (such as the installation of new windows, new roof, and appliances), while care has been taken to breathe new life into period details (the hand built cabinets in the living and dining rooms were restored). The outdoor spaces are ample and well-appointed: look at that cedar soaking tub! The same area has a fire pit and radiant heat.
