Mid-Century Modern Perfection!

• Over 3500 Square Feet, 3 bath, 4 bdrm 2 story - MLS® $424,900 

A truly stunning example of Burton Duenke’s classic mid-century modernist style but on a much larger scale as this one has over 3500 square feet of living space on an incredible ½ acre lot. Duenke's post-and-beam homes were built to maximize the sense of space through vaulted ceilings, tall windows, and open floor plans.

If you are unfamiliar with Modern Style, just think of the sleek, high-end sophistication of the Rat Pack in front of the sweeping Sands Hotel sign in Las Vegas and you'll start to understand. It links you to an era where you can order an "Old Fashioned" at a swank red booth restaurant and where home still is a place of modern luxury and convenience.

Upon entering the home you’ll be struck by soaring ceilings and the rosewood, pine and other natural materials throughout. You’ll also fall in love with the huge windows and the open staircase that winds around two fireplaces which span the height of the vaulted pine ceilings all the way to the second floor loft. Upstairs is a second family room area overlooking the great room and opening to the park-like backyard that backs to St. Clemens parish/school.

In the bedrooms high strip windows allow free arrangement of furniture without cutting out light and air and ensuring privacy from the neighbors. The baths were also just completed and feature dal tile and modern clean lines. The master suite has its own private bath, two additional bedrooms share a luxurious new bath, and on the main level is another new modern guest bathroom. Upstairs there is also a huge flex space consisting of two very large rooms that could make for an even more incredible master suite, home office, or recreation space.

The redesigned eat in kitchen is sleek with white cabinets and black countertops and is filled with natural light.  It includes a huge breakfast/hearth room that will become the center of daily life.  Nearby the great room features a new theatre surround sound center, a two way fireplace, and new flooring.

The current sellers have lovingly restored this home to its original splendour and glory. For the past three years the couple has largely taken away coats of paint and then repainted the entire home, replaced outdated lighting with lights of the period, replaced woodwork including the pine ceilings, and updated both the systems and infrastructure including baths, kitchen and all living spaces inside and out.  It’s a truly magnificent example of updating a home while carefully maintaining the benefits and beauty of its original architectural design
