A 2,430-square-foot home that’s tucked away in the privacy of the woods around Haverford at 3705 Darby Road, just listed for $585,000.
This home, which has four beds and two baths, was built in 1959 and it shows. The house has a distinctly midcentury modern feel, especially when it comes to the large, floor-to-ceiling windows that wrap around the spacious living room and look out over the neighboring woods.
Along with the walls of windows, the home offers a number of other unique design elements, like cedar plank ceilings and concrete walls.
Much of the home was carpeted over since its construction nearly 60 years ago, but the original polished concrete flooring still sits under the carpet.
The house, which was designed by P.T. Astore, won a national award for residential design in 1961 and nearly all of the original design elements have stayed the same since.
