Just Listed: Contemporary Split-Level in Wynnewood
Unlike most midcentury split-levels, this one has a distinctly modernist profile. Its owners, however, think they bought a Colonial.
As you’ve seen with other houses showcased in this space, nothing about a house’s architectural style dictates a specific type of interior treatment. Handsome center-hall Colonials get new leases on life with starkly modern interiors. Minimalist modern structures contain elegant Federal-style rooms.
And it all just works.
Sometimes, however, one runs across a house where the style mixtape gets tangled.
Like this handsome contemporary split-level house for sale in Wynnewood.
It dates to the mid-1950s, the era when the split-level house began to take American suburbs by storm. But unlike most split-level houses of the era, this house has a uniquely modernist profile, as the photo at top should make clear.
Its owners do not share that modernist outlook, and as you peruse the rooms in this house, you will see just how strongly their preferences run towards the traditional.
It shows up not only in the furniture and lighting choices but also in the major improvements they made to this house recently.
Most notably, the upgraded kitchen, which features traditional cabinetry and stone tile backsplashes.
Because this house has such strongly modernist features as its vaulted-ceilinged living room with its huge windows, it needed more alteration to make a traditional retrofit work. It didn’t get it.
But that shouldn’t stop you from buying this house for sale, for it has all the features of a comfortable and attractive modern home.
The main living area has an open plan that makes both everyday living and entertaining easy and convenient.
It has spacious bedrooms with ample closet space.
And it even has a split-level patio in its backyard.
It also has a convenient location. Wynnewood Regional Rail station, the Wynnewood Shopping Center, Wynnewood’s capacious Whole Foods Market and Lankenau Hospital are all a short drive away from your quiet cul-de-sac just off Lancaster Avenue.
