Homes like that are starting to appeal more and more to me as I shed my old world charm tendencies.

What a great looking house. You do not see that type of architecture in my part of the world. Thanks for sharing!

Stewart,

Some expressions of modern architecture appear more timeless than others.  This was has aged very gracefully.

Touring this home was a treat.

Apart from the striking architectural style, there was a great deal of thought given to the interior of the home which was way ahead of its time when it was built back in 1954.
