This midcentury charmer, built in 1956, has the essential features of its period with updates that work well with the style. Located in the coveted and central Barton Hills neighborhood (alongside many gems of the era), the home is fairly sprawling for its time period at 2,162 square feet.
The exterior of the one-story home, which is sited a lot that measures close to a quarter of an acre, is composed of brick and Hardiplank-style siding. It features original-looking elements, such as the iron divider between the entrance and the living area, the bright front door with its narrow windowed, and the low, cutout brick wall that defines the backyard patio.
The four-bedroom, three-bathroom home has laminate, wood-style and hard-tile floors throughout. Large windows and glass doors on all sides of the living and dining areas allow in lots of light as well as referencing the modernist period.
The kitchen opens on to the family room and wooden cabinets appropriate to the house’s original period.
The home features built-in bookcases and walk-in closets in bedrooms.
The large property has a storage space and workshop as well as two off-street parking spaces.
