Midcentury Modern Near Old Barnes Museum Asks $1.5M

It was designed by a local architect in the 1950s

The Philly burbs are dotted with midcentury modern homes like this one in Penn Valley and another in on the Main Line. Here’s another one designed by a local architect in the early 1950s and sits a half-mile from the former Barnes residence in Merion.

It’s a large 4-bedroom, 4-bath home that was designed by noted architect Harry Sternfeld in 1953. The listing photos reveal interiors that almost look like the inside of a ‘Real World’ house, as well as dramatic vaulted ceilings and a wall of floor-to-ceiling windows that look out to the property’s 1.29 acres.

It’s a big home—it clocks in at 5,231 square feet. That includes an attached two-car garage that’s zoned for office use. The asking price of the home in Lower Merion is $1,500,000.
