Tucked into the woods in Phoenixville, this home that just dropped on the market offers a style reminiscent of nature, with repurposed wood, stone, and massive windows that look out into the woods beyond, for $750,000.
At 3,000 square feet the home offers one bed and one bedroom area—though the listing says it could be adapted into a four-bed place—as well as 1.5 baths. But it’s not the size that’s so eye catching about this place; it’s the style. Built in 1971, at the tail end of midcentury modern’s wave of popularity, this home features some of the most iconic aspects of that style, although it brings its own contemporary flair.
There are repurposed wood beams and wood paneling throughout; high, slanted ceilings; plenty of large windows that symbolically connect the inside with the woods surrounding the home; and clean, clear-cut lines.
The whole home is built on the ruins of a graphite mine, and the architect used the changes in elevation that resulted from the ruins as part of the building’s design, according to the listing.
It’s been nearly 20 years since the home was last on the market. It previously sold for $233,000 in 1998.
