Now this is something out of the ordinary. Just think about the impact this 1960s Hobart Betts-designed modernist property in Englewood, New Jersey, USA would have had back in the day?
Not that you need to think too hard, as not a lot has changed over the decades in many respects. After all, you aren’t going to change something like this to mock Georgian very easily.
The house dates from 1960 would you believe, with those bold curves dominating the design both inside and out. Yes, it is a circular living space inside. At least, in part it is. That perhaps accounts for the state of it inside, which looks part modernised, with the circular parts more in keeping with a bygone era. Check out the living room with the built-in seating, for example.
But this certainly isn’t a renovation project. It just needs a bit of tweaking to add consistency to the interior design and to match the ‘wow’ of that exterior.
As for the house itself, it offers a substantial 4,174 sq. ft. of space over three levels in a sought after area. Features include a central spiral staircase around the ‘chimney core’, an atrium with vaulted ceilings and several skylights and large picture windows. On a more practical note, there are five bedrooms and six bathrooms, with one of those bedrooms opening onto its own private deck.
Over an acre of land too, so plenty of privacy you would presume. A lot of house, but it does come in at quite a lot of money too. The asking price is $1,199,000.
