Sometimes we like to venture outside of Philly proper to scope out the real estate inventory out in the 'burbs. We're convinced this Bauhaus-inspired home in Bucks County could be enough to persuade a city-dweller to ditch a condo for a contemporary gem on two acres.
Located in New Hope, about an hour from Center City, this 4-bedroom, 3-bath house was designed in 1930 by an architect who studied under Walter Gropius, the founder of the Bauhaus School. In 1997 the home was doubled in size and now stands at 4,400 square feet.
"This is a special treasured home in Solebury Township," real estate agent Nancy Goldberg tells Curbed Philly, adding that it's may be the first contemporary home built in Bucks County and tends to draw a lot of intrigued visitors.
Designed initially for a Broadway executive, the home features numerous architectural details that make it stand out from the average Bucks County home: A stainless steel front door, heated tile floors in the modern kitchen, even a chrome-finished floor-to-ceiling TV stand in the master bedroom.
The asking price of this contemporary home on Windy Bush Road in New Hope is $1,299,000.
