A midcentury modern home that hides among the trees in Havertown has come to the market, wowing both inside and out.

The home at 317 Ellis Road dates back to 1952 and was designed by local architect Charles Frederick Wise, whose most notable work is the midcentury modern Temple Adath Israel synagogue in Merion, Pennsylvania.

There’s a lot to look at both outside and within the 2,571-square-foot home, but the real showstopper is in the main living area on the first floor. Here, woodwork and a brick fireplace by George Nakashima run along the full length of a wall, serving as the home’s centerpiece.

The are windows seemingly everywhere, allowing constant views of the property’s lush surroundings from wherever you stand in the home. According to the listing, the current owners added multiple outdoor spaces to the home, as well.

The asking price of this three-bedroom, two and a half bath home is $595,000.
