About the design and history: Allied Construction built thousands of quality, Post-War homes in the Phoenix Metro area throughout the 1950s and 1960s. Architect Charles Schreiber designed this trademark mid-century modern elevation for Allied, which was featured in several Allied communities. There are only approximately 50 of the mid-century modern elevation homes in the top Allied communities, making it something of a rarity. Trademark features of this design are the low-sloped roof, front wall of windows, exposed beams, tapered front patio posts and the telltale detail; fenestrated blockwork found at the entry.

Remodeled Town & Country Haver Gem!
April 16th, 2016
Classic Haver! 3-bedroom, 2-bath house in the popular Town & County Manor neighborhood. This is a quintessential example of the work celebrated by Mid Century Modern architect Ralph Haver, whose low-sloping roofs and clean lines became an iconic part of the southwestern streetscape. The house sits in a quiet development, along with the other homes of similar design. Relax in the large resort-like backyard with delightful flowerbeds, gazebo, concrete patio and the original Haver breezeway with Haver-inspired gates. So often we see these homes expanded so much that they lose all sense of their Architectural roots, or they consume the large yards found in Town & County… but not here! The interiors were updated in the recent past but the home retains the flavor and clean lines of the original design, complete with polished concrete floors. This one’s a gem! Hurry to grab it before it’s gone.
This home IS the perfect balance of MCM and Modern, a signature piece of affordable Architecture to call home!
