This $ 1.25 million modern home in Ann Arbor has not been touched since the 1950s – let’s take a tour
While we wait for a true Whirlpool time machine to be invented, the opportunity to act out our most spectacular 1950s fantasy is a reality for $ 1,250,000. Located in the coveted Barton Hills community of Ann Arbor, this 3 bed, 3 bath, 2,758 square foot home with 360 foot Barton Pond facade is a mid-century modernist’s wildest fancy. This home was designed by Colvin, Robinson, and Associates in 1954 and has not been touched since then, according to real estate agents, except, as you know, meticulously maintaining its sleek and refined size.
In keeping with the true mid-mod aesthetic, the house brings the exterior into play thanks to clean lines, spacious living spaces, and window walls that offer panoramic views of the pond. There is a double-sided slate fireplace on the first floor which has double duty for those who enjoy the living and dining room. If you like warmth, you’ll be delighted to know that the slate floors in the foyer and dining room are heated. Really like heat? Well, the four seasons room of the house has a vaulted ceiling and, you know, a wood burning stove, NBD. For those who want to stay open, the kitchen is an open concept with plenty of counter space and cupboards. In the three large bedrooms, the trend towards vaulted ceilings continues on the second floor. You will also find an open loft area with vintage cedar walls (so you can store your finest furs), as well as a built-in desk and built-in planters.
