Yes, it has been updated. But when you see the finish for this 1960s Al Beadle-designed midcentury modern property in Phoenix, Arizona, USA, you’ll understand why we aren’t complaining.
The house dates from 1968 and is very much on the modernist side of midcentury modern. That’s especially the case after this renovation, which we suspect has been undertaken since the last sale in 2011. It just works.
Yes, it is still a courtyard property and still offers the open plan living and extensive glazing you would expect. But the space has now been ‘completely and comprehensively remodeled and expanded’, with some high end finishes thrown in for good measure.
So limestone floors throughout the home and into the courtyard, zebra wood Poggenpohl cabinetry, Viking appliances, all new doors and windows and a brand new larger master bathroom suite. The back of the property has also been enlarged and redesigned with patios, a large air conditioned workshop and built-in barbecue space.
As for the internal space, that covers 2,787 sq. ft. and includes three bedrooms and three bathrooms plus all that open reception space that effortlessly works with the outside living area and its pool.
$1,395,000 is the asking price.
