Mid-Century Modern Perfect for Exhbitionists Asks $1.5M

New, 5 comments


If you've spent any time in Society Hill, you've probably noticed this mid-century modern townhome because of its giant full length window facing the street. If you're into privacy, there's a curtain, but it seems like this house is designed for those who want the whole world to know about their fabulously decorated lifestyle.

In a strange twist, the living room of this home appears to be modeled after the inside of a cave: oddly shaped windows and a sloping fireplace bring organic angles inside, while the sandstone colored wall paper (or is it just stone?) ties the cave motif together.

The outgoing owners clearly had a southwestern theme to their decor, and it shows throughout the first floor, while upstairs, a checkerboard pattern and odd angles create a disorienting Alice-in-Wonderland effect. There's a roof sundeck too, which offers a view of the street below.

House Vitals:
Size: 4 bedrooms, 3.5 baths, 3,324 sq ft
Amenities include: A giant window, rooftop sundeck, interior courtyard, cave-inspired decor, far more square footage than anyone needs.
Asking Price: $1,495,000
