This truly spectacular Modern home designed by George Smith an architect who worked in the office of Louis Kahn and Oscar Stonorov?and built in 1959 is on the market for the first time since its remarkable restoration. This home is among the best examples of the "glass box" in mid-century American architecture dissolving the divide between inside and outside. The center of the home is the large open-concept living room and dining room with a dramatic hilltop view overlooking protected woodland. Each of the four seasons can be enjoyed in complete privacy with no other homes in sight. The family room kitchen breakfast area and master bedroom have floor-to-ceiling walls of glass and the home's extensive clerestory windows also emphasize the high ceilings and the connection to the outside. Every detail of the 4-bedroom 4-bath home has been beautifully restored. The kitchen and bathrooms have undergone gut renovations. The original terrazzo floors found in all the major rooms have been restored to their full glory. The work continued outside with beautiful retaining walls plantings fencing around the nearly two-acre property and a complete restoration of the large keystone-shaped pool. Additional improvements include a new EDPM roof and new insulated windows. The home's location a quick 15-minute drive into the heart of Philadelphia is in top-rated Lower Merion School District and near the full array of shopping and restaurants the Main Line has to offer. A truly remarkable and rare opportunity to own a significant work of architectural importance restored with the highest possible integrity and in an incredible location.
