In Glenside, stunning glass box-style modern home for $795K

Complete with waterfall

Jim Albert

Philly and the surrounding area don’t see many midcentury modern homes come on the market.

But when one does, it tends to be pretty spectacular.

That’s certainly the case with this Glenside home on 520 Station Avenue, which exemplifies the “glass box” style that’s so beloved in midcentury modern homes. Designed by Thomas Mangan, who studied under Marcel Breuer, it offers three bedrooms and two baths tucked into the hillside. The open living room has plenty of floor-to-ceiling windows that look out over the yard. There’s plenty of light throughout the home, as well as a ton of stone details in the fireplaces and walls.

The spot is angled for optimal sunlight as well as privacy, and it sits on just under an acre of land.

One big draw? The exterior includes a large backlit waterfall above a reflecting pool.

The home is being shown by Craig Wakefield of Compass and it’s asking $795,000.
