A midcentury modern in Media that dates back to 1955 has ties to a modernist architect has hit the market, asking $575,000.
The home at 20 Paxon Hallow is was designed by Stubbins as part of Better Home & Garden’s House of the Year. Media was one of the 100 locations where Stubbins’s homes were built. Stubbins would later go onto design the CitiCorp tower in New York and Japan’s tallest building, the Landmark Tower.
Today, the four-bedroom, two-bath home is on the market after undergoing a major restoration with the help of local designer Kate Rohre, who is the brains behind a lot of new gorgeous restaurants in Philly, including Bud and Marilyn’s and Double Knot.
A lot of the original details remain: The asymmetrical facade is typical of the midcentury modern era, and the hardwood floors have been refinished. The kitchen, meanwhile, has been upgraded with new appliances and cabinetry, complemented with a bright aqua tiled backsplash.
There are also lots of windows throughout the home, which sits on one acre. The master suite has its own set of sliding doors that open up to the backyard, and there are more sliding doors from the living room.
At 2,205 square feet, this home’s price tag comes out to $260 per square foot.
