Built in 1959, this amazing southwest mid-century highlights the beauty of post and beam architecture coupled with a local designer’s finishing touches. As you approach this home you are greeted by a classic open beam carport that draws you into the entry and expansive living room. With an absolutely stunning floor plan spanning over 1500 square feet across one level, the layout seamlessly ties the open formal spaces at the north end of the home with the bedrooms at the south end. This dynamic is created through an open kitchen that serves as an axis point to both ends of the home in addition to the incredible outdoor patio which ties both together on the exterior. The master suite and dining room bookend the patio which visually connects these spaces through expansive sliding doors at each end, while sheltering you under an incredible post and beam shed roof. The expansive ceilings are reflective of the massive roof line which creates a captivating sense of volume in the living room, dining room and master bedroom whose ceilings soar eastward. Complimenting the ceiling design is a stout brick wall with a wood burning fireplace that is a dramatic backdrop to the living room and kitchen. The kitchen itself features updated slab cabinetry, quartz countertops, stainless appliances and an adjacent laundry room with direct access to the west side of the property. The bathrooms have both been updated with custom tile, designer colors, gorgeous fixtures and cabinet hardware, while the bedrooms feature new carpet and beautiful two tier color patterns. Beyond the 3 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms is an expansive backyard with perfect southern exposure and a sense of privacy created by an amazing custom mural, cedar fencing and the iconic west elevation which highlights the scale of the adjacent patio and cascading mid-century beams that make this home so special. With a sought after southwest location close to Garden Home shops, grocery, the recreation center and Old Market Pub and Brewery this home is a noteworthy address that you won’t want to miss.
