A boxy midcentury modern home in West Mt. Airy that was designed by local architect Harry Sternfeld has come to the market, asking $825,000.
The home at 6723 Wissahickon Avenue is a four-bedroom, two and a half bath property that clocks in at 3,279 square feet. It sits on three quarters of an acre, heavily surrounded by trees and the Wissahickon Woods.
Sternfeld, who also designed this home made the most of the home’s secluded site, maximizing views from the living room with a wall of windows. This light-filled room has a stone fireplace as its centerpiece and the wood-paneled walls add even more warmth to the space.
Natural light continues to be the theme throughout the house, which has been updated—the living room and foyer seem to have retained the most original details. The lush landscape surrounding the home is the works of local landscape designer Larry Weaner, and there’s a two-car garage and driveway, too.
