A dramatic location and a pretty dramatic piece of architecture too, courtesy of the 1950s Allen Walter-designed midcentury modern property in San Jose, California, USA.
This is no time capsule, that’s for sure. But the actual architecture looks unchanged from the original 1958 build, with the beams, the heavy glazing, the ‘cathedral’ ceiling and the stone detailing still in place here.
Talking of glazing, check out the views from within the house and overlooking Alum Rock Canyon. Described as ‘panoramic’ by the agent, we are happy to add in the word ’stunning’. Can you imagine waking to to that each morning? We can dream.
As we said, the layout and the architect’s intent seems to remain, but much of the interior looks pretty fresh to these eyes. Clean white walls, stylish bathroom areas and a contemporary kitchen as you might expect. But the midcentury charm remains, which is the important thing.
Around 2,482 sq. ft. of living space to play with, which includes two bedrooms and two bathrooms, as well as that large, feature-packed kitchen, an entertaining area and so much open reception space, not least when you factor in the covered patio.
The land is around 12,000 sq. ft, in total, which includes a good amount of garaging too.
More images on the listing, so do check those out. If you want this place, offers around the $1,299,000 mark.
