According to Curbed, the overhaul of this 1963 build is the work of Blaine Siler, owner of  Redux Stage Co, a company that rescues midcentury houses and returns them to their former glory. But this isn’t a company house – this is his own home. It is certainly a good advert for the business though.

The agent describes it as ‘impeccably preserved’ as well as ‘tastefully’ modernised, words we can’t disagree with. It’s pretty much a picture guide to renovating a midcentury property. Very much of the original era, but without forgetting that ultimately this is a modern family home.

As an example, the kitchen features bespoke Berkeley Mills mahogany wood cabinetry and white Corian counters and surrounds, not to mention some high-end appliances, mixing it up with some mid-century globe lighting, beams and ‘floating’ walls. A contrast, but one that works.

As for the rest of the house, that totals 1,656 sq. ft of space and includes four bedrooms, two bathrooms, and a very open plan inside living area. But the star of the show is the glass walled atrium at the centre of the house, with newly-added concrete flooring.
