Stylish midcentury living, courtesy of this 1950s one of a kind home. A truly remarkable and unique property. An architecturally designed home influenced by the guiding principles of the international and mid-century modernism of its time. True to the era, this flat-roofed 4263 square-foot home is clad with walls of windows on main and upper levels, providing stunning city and mountain views. Sunlight floods both floors thanks to the designer’s intentional effort to connect to the home’s natural surroundings. Deep South and west facing overhangs, contemporary pillars and extensive patio space offer a strong connection to the outdoors. Raised above the street offering tons of outdoor living space and privacy care of lush vine, lilac, ashes and aspen greenery - and a privileged view from both levels that only residents in this highly sought after neighborhood can enjoy. 9ft ceilings on both levels with very spacious principal rooms. Red cedar, wide-plank hardwood flooring, a free standing fireplace and a distinctive accented ceiling alcove complete the stunning living room. Many upgrades including windows throughout, roof, gutters, downspouts, LED lighting and hardwood flooring, wood and baluster fencing, and no-maintenance rock garden landscaping. An added bonus is the house is completely equipped for accessible and adaptive living or aging in place with an elevator, plus many other added accessible yet understated features. The presence of a caretaker suite (not currently legal)on the lower level with a separate entrance, a double attached garage, and a rear parking pad adds further convenience and versatility. Laundry rooms on the main floor and the basement for added convenience. Security system. The newly painted exterior colour choice of mid-century Cherokee Red has a distinguished provenance in the works of Frank Lloyd Wright. This intentional choice by the home’s current occupants adds the historical and artistic element so deserved of this rare build. With its prime inner city location if offers ease of accessibility to most everything. (id:54790)
