Architect Preston Bolton designed this Mid-century modern home in 1963, employing the requisite period features of flat planes, large glass windows and open spaces with the bonus of 10-foot ceilings. Features that make the house light and livable and feeling oh-so-contemporary in 2016.
Interior: The house was updated by its current owners in 2012 and in 2013 with modernizations that included a completely redesigned kitchen, reworked floor plan and updated baths. Four bedrooms and four baths are complemented by two living areas (one formal, one informal), a study and front yard swimming pool.
Original terrazzo floors, brick interior walls and floor-to-ceiling fixed-glass pane windows are among the evergreen features of this stunning home. The windows and steel-framed glass doors allow reams of light to pour in.
Exterior: The house sits on a 14,250-square-foot lot with the front yard hidden behind a vine-covered brick wall which provides utmost privacy. A spacious swimming pool and garden lie between the wall and entry to the house. The tree-shrouded backyard features a black star gravel patio and a playground with rubber chip for children, both added in 2015.
Square footage: 3,369 square feet.
Asking price: $1.65 million.
