This unique mid-century modern home in the heart of Paradise Valley offers great design and timeless style, with a curvilinear design for all the exterior walls. Built in 1963, and designed by architect Fred Griffin, the original owner still lives here and has maintained much of the original charm of this home.
The floor plan resembles an airplane propeller, with a wonderful gathering place for family and friends in the center of the home, while the first spoke of the propeller provides five bedrooms and two bathrooms for the kids, the second spoke of the propeller is the kitchen, dining and family room. The third spoke of the propeller you will find the large master retreat and office.
The home is situated on an elevated 1.77 acre lot surrounded by views of the mountains and downtown. Relax outside in the diving pool, or gaze over the reflecting pool complemented by the natural desert landscaping. The interior features beautiful terrazzo flooring in great condition, great use of wood paneling, floor to ceiling windows with plenty of natural light, exposed slump block walls, and tons of built-in storage space.
I had the fortunate opportunity to view this home in person recently and it is truly amazing. While some rooms do need a great deal of updating and renovation, with the right owner and an appreciation for mid-century modern preservation there is enormous potential to turn this home into something really spectacular.
