It’s always interesting to see a mid-century home home hit the market for the very first time. It’s kind of like looking into a time capsule. The “Par 4 House,” was built in 1949 and is set high in prime Mt. Washington.
The 1,918 square foot residence was built by architects Manfred & Colleen McArthur and has been largely untouched, aside from the addition of a third bedroom, which was built by the original builder/designer in the 1960s.
The residence features walls of glass, large brick fireplace, wood built-ins, clerestory windows, and an expansive view deck with a built-in spa.
The vintage modernist kitchen includes original stainless steel appliances and a breakfast bar facing the view.
The residence is sited on a 6,787 square foot, gently sloping lot with flat areas, putting greens, and southerly views of all the way out to Catalina.
This property is really intriguing and has a lot of potential. If you’re interested in a mid-century fixer, this might be your house!
