Beautiful Mid-Century Modern home in Creekside

1010 NW 36th Road

 

 

Everyone seems to love the Mid-Century Modern style these days.  But have you ever wondered what really makes it so special?  If so, take a look at this house from 1957, which is a beautiful example of the principles of the Mid-Century aesthetic.

 

Exterior:  The house is accessed by a covered catwalk, leading from a porte-cochère. This allows you to fully appreciate the natural landscaping, and lends to the feeling that the house is hanging in space, situated among the landscape without dominating it. The living room sits to the left of the catwalk, cantilevered over the yard and a courtyard.  With floor-to-ceiling plate glass and hopper windows situated to take advantage of breezes in the fall and spring, the aluminum accents and wide views are quintessential Mid-Century Modern. 

 

 

 

To the rear, the house overlooks Hogtown Creek as it winds its way towards the west side of town.  Expansive windows on either side of the house allow for light to come in and add to the feeling of being suspended in midair.  A pool adds to the indoor-outdoor feeling, accessed via the den and bedroom.  Waking up on this side of the house offers views of nature and the opportunity for a quick morning dip.

 

 

Interior:  Inside, the house is pure Mid-Century from the floors to the ceilings. Original oak floors are warm in the abundant light, and pocket doors preserve sightlines the length of the house.  The house is split into distinct areas for living and dining and sleeping.  In addition to the upstairs spaces, there is a separate living space on the lower story, complete with bath and exterior patio. 

 

 

 

Love the feeling of spaciousness and light that comes from floor-to-ceiling windows looking over a hillside creek?  Find yourself thinking about enjoying a swimming pool and taking yourself back to the best of the Mid-Century period?  Call us today and we'd be happy to show you this beautiful period home.
