You can barely see what's going on here through the shocking amount of lens vignetting (listing photos, people, listing photos), but let's just try to paint you a picture: this four bedroom, three and a half-bath midcentury modern, asking $599,900, is a custom home situated on a two-acre wooded lot. There are timber ceilings and stone walls; a newer gourmet kitchen with granite countertops, a skylight, and two pantry areas; and a tile foyer that includes an "orchid room/greenhouse." Whatever that means. A cursory Google search posing the question: "What is an orchid room?" led to a smoky dive bar in San Carlos, California, so you're on your own for this one, kids. The great room features a copper-clad fireplace but the real draw is a massive deck that places you right smack dab in the middle of that great peaceable kingdom right outside. The property also borders Whitford Country Club.
