Let's take another dip in the midcentury modern pool, and cast our gaze on this little number designed by architect Jack Grisdale out in Villanova. Built in 1946, the unapologetic institutional overtones of this four-bedroom, three-bath home may at first blush remind some of us of angst-ridden high school days, but inside, the listing promises, the home "has all the features of a classic mid-century modern including walls of windows and open spaces." Built for architect Arthur Grisdale and his family, the home, asking $785,000, sits on one acre of land, and features an open plan first floor that "can be used for adaptive functions," as midcentury modern first floors are wont to do.
